Easily the most underrated storyline of this season is how good-looking Vinny Lecavalier is. How is there not an entire fan fiction sub-genre dedicated to his jawline? A phrase to tell hair stylists with which to achieve his perfectly coiffed hair (I want the Vincente!)? A section at Nordstrom Rack filled with deep-V-necks in honor of him?
I say this as a straight man, of course. But he’s ridiculously good-looking, and don’t disagree with me.
Anyway, he received some recognition today from Vanity Fair in their 10 most stylish hockey players list, entitled, perhaps appropriately, Icemen Cometh:
An expert in the tasteful use of open collars and V-neck shirts (which is no easy feat), Vincent Lecavalier was born near Montreal but clearly adapted to warmer climes during his 14 years playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Now with the Philadelphia Flyers, the 33-year-old center also knows how to pull out all the stops on the red carpet.
Somewhere, Jeff Carter cares to disagree. He owns the V-neck market, dammit!
