By now you’ve realized that Thursdays are our turns to be a little shallow and enjoy how hockey players look. We’ve featured a man ever week since the feature began and that us about to change. This week we’re switching it up. Female hockey players are skilled, strong, and most definitely as sexy as their male counterparts.
This week we’re awarding the Hawt Trophy to Julie Chu of the USA Women’s Team.
The first Asian American woman to play for the U.S. Olympic ice hockey team, she transitioned to hockey as a child after taking figure skating lessons. It’s safe to say she made a good move, having represented her country at three Olympic games.
The forward has participated in the Women’s World Championships since 2004 and has helped her team to four gold medals. She was the leading scorer in the 2009 Worlds tournament with ten points, five goals and five assists.
As if that weren’t enough, Julie graduated with honors from Harvard University and a degree in psychology. On the ice, she captained her team and became the NCAA leading scorer. She won the Patty Kazmaier Award in 2007 for the best female collegiate hockey player.
She was featured in the 2011 Body Issue of ESPN Magazine. Strong, healthy, and athletic is absolutely gorgeous.
And let’s not forget the…
Danijela Rundqvist , forward for the Swedish Women’s National Team.
