New Hockey Love: Wayne Simmonds.

While he's not a Penguin, I feel pretty safe in declaring my love for L.A. Kings player Wayne Simmonds. The Kings are first off not in the same conference, and secondly will not be going to the Stanley Cup finals anytime soon. Barring some sort of movie-inspiring Cinderella story that is. So I'm sure Sid, Max, Jordan and Kris won't mind too much.

It's times like this when I wonder how I could have ever thought the Canadian accent was totally off putting and annoying. Well, it irks a little, but who cares? Anyways, Wayne is 21, from Ontario, had his rookie season last year and is kicking ass this year- literally. He's known as a bit of a fighter. He is also one of the few black players in the league.

Anyways, click here to watch a video where Wayne talks about memories from his days of being drafted. So hot. So so hot. Below is a video of a Pens/Kings game where Malkin pulls a move that looks more like his buddy Ovechkin, one that might have gotten him suspended if it had been in the past few months- they've really been cracking down on this kind of thing.
