Shea Weber's wife Bailey Weber has every right to be excited. After Shea Weber scored the game winning goal in the QuarterFinal game against Latvia, the Canadian masses exploded in celebration, and Bailey Weber was undoubtedly among those celebrating.
The Nashville Predators star married his longtime girlfriend Bailey (formerly Bailey Munro) in 2013. Longtime is the operative word here as Shea and Bailey Weber have been dating since high school. Bailey graduated from Kelowna Secondary School in Kelowna, Britsh Columbia, where Shea played for the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League.
Shea and Bailey Weber are heavily involved in charitable endeavors both in their adopted NHL hometown of Nashville, as well as in their Canadian hometowns of Sicamous and Kelowna, British Columbia respectively. The couple has involved themselves in various foundations such as the Special Olympics to help raise money and awareness for their causes.
Shea Weber helps lead the Canadian Men's Hockey Team into the Semi-Final game against the USA Squad. We often times close with a polite well wishing, but despite respecting our neighbors to the North, this Boston based blog can't pull the trigger this time. Go USA!

Justin Faulk's girlfriend Chloe Lappen is a quick reminder that the players on Team USA are young guys, fresh out of school.
21 year old Justin Faulk, currently wearing the stars and stripes, but who also normally wears the Assistant Captain patch for the Carolina Hurricanes, would still be in school had he stayed. After helping the University of Minnesota - Duluth win a national title in the 2010-2011 season, he signed an entry level contract with Carolina. Now, we'd normally finish that sentence with a colloquial, trite comment saying that Faulk signed with Carolina and never looked back,... but that's not the case this time. As a senior at Minnesota - Duluth, we'd imagine that Justin Faulk's girlfriend would have something to say if he didn't.
Outside the Olympian, NHL star of a boyfriend, Chloe appears to have a normal life for a college student. She likes popular music, bad movies and posting pictures with her friends. The couple appears to be holding strong despite the distance.
In the coolest move ever, we found a picture of Minnesota native Faulk wearing a Mighty Ducks tee. I very, very much support this wardrobe choice.

Derek Stepan's girlfriend Stephanie Kent was playing chess in the dating game of checkers.
Not only did Stephanie Kent manage to date a professional hockey player playing in the biggest city in America, who also happened to be tabbed to play for Team USA,... but she's also marrying into a family of jewelry designers. When he slid the custom designed engagement ring onto her finger in October, 2013 to soon make her Derek Stepan's wife Stephanie Kent, she officially won.
Customer testimonials on LJS Designs tells the story:
Congratulations to my son Derek and his fiancé Stephanie. Aunt Denise and I had so much fun helping him design the perfect engagement ring. Derek knew he would receive “very” personable service and a high quality piece. We are excited to have Stephanie join both our family and LJS Design.
Beyond their engagement, there's not much more known about Stephanie Kent. A private Twitter profile, and somewhere of the vicinity of 24,875 Facebook profiles by that name made the chase nearly impossible. We hope to see Stephanie Kent celebrating a top level podium appearance in Sochi in a few more days, but even then doubt we'll learn much more about her. Best of luck to Derek in the Sochi games, and in the pending nuptials.
