Welcome to 2014! To bring in the first month of the new year, each day I’m going to focus on my favorite hockey player from each team. Some teams may have honorable mentions! Be excited!
I actually made a particular order for this, from team I like the least to team I like the most… So without further ado, I give you my favorite player of the Minnesota Wild…
It’s no secret that I dislike the Wild quite a bit, mostly for Ryan Suter related reasons. However, they did sign ex-Canuck Keith Ballard in an attempt to woo their way into my good graces. It didn’t quite work, but let’s take a moment to appreciate him!
Everything about this pic hurts me a little. Ryan Kesler’s lean against the wall. Bally’s bare feet. Dan Hamhuis’s hand on his hip. They miss you, Keith! [Source: lovelaughxo]
He does tongue porn so well. And that little bit of scruff? Yes please. [Source: chrishiggin]
Always so modest – and willing to do what’s best for the team. [Source: juicepls]
Dat ass tho. ‘Nough said. [Source: yeahburryeah]
His smile lights up a room, you have to agree. [Source: rawrzuhlind]
And, finally, a handy guy to have on the ice, despite what former head coach AV might have thought. [Source: nhl-hits-goals-saves]
