Foxy Friday: The Flying Swede Nicky B.

18 Mar
Truly adorkable. But our adorkable! We heart you.

I know, I know,  it’s been WEEKS … We’ve been busy! And it’s late on Friday but here it is. Nicky B. get’s this week’s FOXY FRIDAY salute and I have to throw in Epic Bromance because I can’t seem to find a video or photo that doesn’t have him and Ovi in it! And it’s not because I love Ovi. SRSLY. It’s truly hard to find a photo of Nicky without Ovi. Not vice versa mind you.  There are no words for it. It’s like watching a day with me and Mr. Cherrie only we’re married.

Nicky’s back this week after missing his first NHL game ever after succumbing to his sore ouchie! How much could that suck? With a work ethic like that, it must have killed him to sit on the bench. I bet he was making swedish pancakes for Mikey whether he wanted them or not!

I wonder if he'd sign our panties?

BUT DID YOU KNOW THIS FOXY FRIDAY WAS SUCH A HOT PROSPECT?

Born Lars Nicklas Bäckström (we’ve been hopelessly spelling his name wrong forever), he turned down The Caps after initially being drafted to play one more year in Sweden, the horror! He was the fourth-highest drafted Swede behind Mats Sundin, Daniel Sedin & Henrik Sedin! Not bad company!

do we really want to know how or why this came about?

Bäckström was the runner-up to Chicago’s Patrick Kane for the Calder Trophy. Kane had 1,087 votes while Bäckström had 872 votes. The Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews (Another Foxy Friday Alumnus) was third with 647. However, Bäckström was named to the All-Rookie Team along with Kane and Toews.

We go together like ...

At the conclusion of the 2009–10 NHL season, Backstrom finished 4th in League scoring with 101 points, behind Henrik Sedin (112), Sidney Crosby (109) and Alexander Ovechkin (109).

Bäckström scored his first career playoff hat trick, including the overtime game winner against the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, a round that they lost in seven games but we don’t like to remember that last little bit – too depressing.

OMG - a photo without Ovi!

On 17 May 2010, Bäckström signed a ten-year, $67 million contract extension with the Washington Capitals. Totes awesomeness!

He always looks so serious but when he smiles it’s so adorable. He’s the peanut butter to Ovi’s jelly! He’s what makes the Cap’s STICK. He’s the constant to all the static. The “A” on his jersey isn’t for alternate it’s for AWESOME!

So here’s a big WUYS FOXY FRIDAY salute to our favorite Capital’s Swede Lars Nicklas Bäckström!

    Oooooooooooooooomlats. I bet Nicky is aces at putting together all this furniture we bought. Should have had him over last week – no manual labor because of his broken finger, but he could have directed.

    Meanwhile, you left you that your OTHER boyfriend Letang broke Nicky’s finger. Because he also apparently has a thing for Ovi. What is with that guy? I must be weird.

    I was trying to leave Kris out for once. It was REALLY hard. I couldn’t make it through the post leaving Ovi out. I almost had to also add Epic Fail to the tag! HA!

    Fiddling with the beard Nicky… now I feel nauseous. Go fiddle with Fidget’s hair. Much more clean, if loaded with product.
