Let's get this out of the way now. No, Elisha Cuthbert (aka Jack Bauer's daughter, & Alex Kerkovich Happy Endings) was not rolling her eyes at James Reimer's wife April Reimer.
With that out of the way, we feel better admitting that we sure thought she was. During Game 4 of the Bruins - Maple Leafs overtime thriller in the 2013 playoffs, many people saw Dion Phaneuf's fiancee Elisha Cuthbert rolling her eyes and presumed she was rolling them at the woman turned around trying to talk to her. That woman was later identified as April Reimer, who also heard the internet rumblings about a beef in the Leafs Wives' section. April took to Twitter to let the world know that it just wasn't the case:
For those who were thinkin @happyelishas and I were rolling our eyes @ eachother. Was the jerk beside us #rudecomment
So there you have it. Despite the dozens of internet stories posted today about Reimer and Cuthbert getting catty in the Wives club, the story just isn't true. James and April Reimer met while he was playing junior hockey and stayed together despite his trek through the minors including a stop in the ECHL playing in the hockey hotbed of South Carolina. The couple does not yet have any children.
The Chicago Blackhawks steamrolled the rest of the league on their way to the #1 seed in the Western Conference (and best record in the NHL). As the playoffs have begun and competition steps up, a huge part of their success will fall to right winger Marian Hossa. The normally reliable Hossa was limited to just 40 games this season, admittedly in a lockout shortened year.
Hossa has developed a huge fan base after coming to Chicago for the 2009-2010 season. Also coming to Chicago was Marian Hossa's wife Jana Hossa. Jana Hossa (formerly Jana Ferova) was Marian's longtime girlfriend when the couple first arrived and were married in the summer of 2010. The couple has one child, daughter Mia, born in September, 2011 in their home country of Slovakia. Mia was born just two days after a plane crash involving a Russian hockey team which resulted in the loss of a number of Hossa's former teammated including close friend, and former NHL player Pavol Demitra. Hossa struggled through early 2011 while dealing with the loss of Demitra, while his wife and new daughter stayed home in Slovakia. The family did reunite a couple months later when all returned to Chicago for the remainder of the 2011-2012 season.
As the Penguins gear up for a trip through the NHL playoffs on the quest to be the first team to 16 postseason wins, the city of Pittsburgh turns it's eyes to their star netminder. Lucky for the Steel City that Marc-Andre Fleury's wife Veronique Fleury (formerly LaRosee) knew their concern and helped keep him focused. Less than a week before the NHL playoffs kicked off, Veronique gave birth to daughter, Estelle just in time to make sure Marc-Andre would be fully focused and present for the first seeded Penguins playoffs. Estelle is rumored to have been born at almost 10 pounds and is the couple's first child.
Marc-Andre Fleury and Veronique were married in 2012 after getting engaged in the summer of 2011. The couple was married in front of a slew of friends and family including dozens of Penguins teammates. Marc-Andre and Veronique first began dating at the age of 15 in 1999 the year before he started playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
