What does this have to do with the Chicago Blackhawks? Wait I have a connection.

Former Blackhawks center, Dave Bolland, was recently traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. On Friday he was on NHL radio and was asked if he was attending the wedding for his new captain Dion Phaneuf. He joked he may crash the wedding because he had talked to several of his new teammates who said they were attending.

So there is my Hawks reference, now to the fun stuff.

Phaneuf married former 24 star, Elisha Cuthbert who played Kim Bauer in my favorite TV show. Cuthbert is also famous for dating Sean Avery before her current husband. Avery had some interesting quotes before a game in December of 2008.

I'm just going to say one thing. I'm really happy to be back in Calgary; I love Canada. I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about, but enjoy the game tonight.

Avery was later suspended indefinitely for his comments. He was a member of the Dallas Stars at the time. Avery didn't return to the ice again till March of that season. It was his only season in Dallas.

Cuthbert and Phaneuf have been together since May of 2008 and were engaged this past September. Congrats to the newly weds and here is to hoping that Kim Bauer will reappear in the next season of 24, now that her show Happy Endings has been cancelled.
