Kris Versteeg's wife Brittany Versteeg


I ran across a solid piece of what could be called fan fiction about Kris Versteeg's wife Brittany Versteeg. It was written back around 2010 after the Blackhawks won the championship, and it describes a scenario where Chris Versteeg went off partying to celebrate the Blackhawks win, passed out in a pool of his own vomit, and was then saved by Brittany. Brittany has to describe this to Chris because he doesn't remember any of it. It's not a bad premise for creative writing, but none of it is true.

Brittany ended up marring Kris just last year, and the wedding and reception looks like it was a pretty regal event. I can tell you pretty much all of Kris Versteeg's wife Brittany Versteeg's professional past as well. I think she may not work any longer, but from 2010 to 2014 she was working as a recruiter at a Toronto firm called Head 2 Head. Her resume is somewhat difficult to understand because it's written in the kind of ultra-professional style that abstracts what she actually did, but the gyst of her job was judging what job candidates were most qualified to get hired to other firms. Before that she was an HR assistant at First Health Care in Markham, Ontario, and before that she was a personal trainer in Whitby, Ontario. She went to the University of Western Ontario, got a bachelor's in Health Sciences.

Well, I think all of that is pretty much out the window now. Getting married to a professional hockey player will sort of blow up your professional ambitions if you let it, ladies. That's what I've observed. Still, I think a baby is not too far off in the future. That's sort of how these things tend to play out. Brittany always looks like she is having a good time in the pictures with Kris. They've been photographed skating together at the United Center and pinned up on the official Blackhawks Pinterest account.

Andrew Shaw's girlfriend Chaunette Boulerice


Andrew Shaw's girlfriend Chaunette Boulerice is a pretty girl with a good head on her shoulders, but I question her taste in movies. She mentioned that "Hook" was one of her favorites, and I remember seeing that in the theaters when I was about seven years old and thinking it wasn't too great [Editor's note: Nope. You're wrong. It's great.]. Nevertheless, she does seem to have a penchant for finding uplifting and motivating quotes. Never underestimate what you can find out about a person from the quotes they post or repost on their personalized social media accounts. Example: "Remember that people will always question the good things they hear about you and believe the bad ones without a second thought." I don't think that's necessarily true, but it shows a healthy amount of resolve and skepticism that is often lacking in player wives.

So what else do we know about Andrew Shaw's girlfriend Chaunette Boulerice? For starters, she's a Canadian, and she let's us know that every once in awhile by praising the little perks of visiting Canada and eating at Canadian fast-food staples like Tim Horton's. I'm fairly certain Tim Horton's is a thing in the States too, but we'll let her retain her fast-food pride. Though she's a canuck, she calls her home Belleville, Illinois. I find this to be a bit of a strange spot since its far closer to St. Louis than Chicago. In fact, it's about as far away from Chicago as you can get and still remain in the state of Illinois-- over four hours drive. She describes taking trips to Chicago now and again and going out with Andrew to restaurants fairly frequently. That does make me wonder why they've chosen to live there. They've got two little dogs (standard issue for player wives) and Chaunette never fails to include them in pictures every month or so.

Jonathan Toews' Girlfriend Lindsey Vecchione


Jonathan Toews' girlfriend Lindsey Vecchione is certainly a blonde bombshell. There is no question that if she began convincing any man to swing by her salon for a haircut, it'd be very difficult to say no, and that's even if she overcharges for a cut. I read on the crazy 'ole internet that Jonathan "hides her away," but I really don't see that as the case. She still has a day job at a salon in Chicago, and she posts her work regularly on Instagram. Lindsey is actually a native of Chicago and has lived there all her life.

The posting of her clients' haircuts is a rather professional move, if you ask me. It allows her to showcase her work, and there's no pictures of her on the account (other than one or two of her working). But make no mistake-- the internet cannot get enough pictures of her. I believe she was featured as on Playboy in some capacity, but I don't think she posed nude. Instead, I think Jonathan Toews' girlfriend was at one point a member of the Chicago Bliss, which is one of the lingerie football teams in the Legends Football League. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Lindsey had a boobjob at some point-- probably shortly after she started dating Jonathan in late 2011. Forgive me if that strikes you as a stray observation, but people want to know these things. There's a picture of them together from the early days where she looks a little less endowed.

I'm a little surprised Jonathan and Lindsey haven't tied the knot yet, but it may just be their preference not to marry. Athletes do tend to get hitched if they're with someone for a few years. It's generally quite beneficial to have that sort of stability in their life while they're traveling around with their team. They know they have a wife to come home to, but it appears that's not really a concern for Jonathan.
