VANITY FAIR NAMES “TOP TEN BEST-DRESSED NHL PLAYERS”
A range of notably stylish hockey stars like Sean Avery and Henrik Lundqvist have long been in the fashion conversation. Now style savvy guys across the league are being lauded for their clothing choices, as NHL players’ interest in fashion continues to grow. Their style statements off-the-ice are typically more subdued than those seen in other sports leagues. While colorful ensembles and flashy accessories dominate NBA and NFL players’ wardrobes, hockey stars favor sleek, tailored suits.
After determining the sartorial standouts in MLB, the NBA, and the NFL, Vanity Fair transitioned to the hockey rink, naming its “Top 10 Best-Dressed NHL Players.” New York Rangers goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist, topped the list thanks to his sharp fashion sense and impeccable taste in suits. As the magazine explains:
When it comes to his wardrobe, goalie Henrik Lundqvist—or King Henrik, in New York Rangers–fan parlance—shows no fear of experimenting with color and pattern, But his suits’ unfailingly perfect tailoring—plus hints of his Scandinavian heritage, with blue-and-white pairings and crisp plaids—always keep Lundqvist on the dapper side of trendy.
