Foxy Friday: Ryan Kesler

8 Apr

I haven’t done a Foxy Friday is forever.  The regular season is thisclose to being over and it’s about time we talked Ryan Kesler.  Kesler is getting a lot of support for NHL MVP this season (not the least of which is from former Foxy Friday @buccigross).


He scored a hat trick last night to reach the 40 goal mark, which puts him 5th in NHL scoring.  This is *way* up from a career-high 26 prior to this season.  Kes has 72 points on the season, was co-captain of ASG Team Staal and gave Mike Green and Rick Nash a run for it on the Best Hair Award.

The Canucks have 1.5 billion points (okay, 115) and locked up a playoff spot around Christmas.  With Kesler on fire and the Robot Sedin Twins churning out points, I don’t envy whoever has to play Vancouver in the first round (dear God let it be Chicago if only because it means they made the playoffs).

I have a clothing line. Here I am NOT wearing it.

Kes has a clothing line with Firststar sports, including shirts, sweatshirts and underwear with his initials on them.  Considering that Ryan was only 7 when Marky Mark rocked his Calvins (old, we are old!), we’ll forgive the obvious homage.

Now I’m hungry for lunch.

Ryan is married with two kids and a very full energy-smart fridge.  He’s from Michigan (Team America) and won the Canucks’ “Most Exciting Player” Award this season.  Can he be more exciting?  The Stanley Cup is exciting, and it’s also foxy. Let’s see if the tradition of Foxy Friday honorees playing even better continues…

    Excellent choice, Pants.

    His abs are spectacular.

    He’s a hot hockey playing John Krasinski look alike (or John Krasinski looks like him, take your pick).

    I never thought of Kessler as anything besides one of those damn Canucks who keep beating my Kings, but DAMN…I’m gonna be thinking something else from now on.

    Mmmm, Kesler. Selke quality player, family man, reformed bad boy (well, reformed agitator, whatever). And he likes to be on camera without a shirt on, bless him. A very fine Foxy Friday choice.
