Elin Nordegren is once again moving on, this time with San Jose Sharks' defenseman Douglas Murray. 

Her most recent beau was investor Jamie Dingman, but it seems she is stepping back into the sports world, if reports are indeed true. 

Swedish site Expressen first reported the hockey hookup and was later translated and reported by Radar Online

According to the English-language report, Nordegren and Murray, who is Swedish, were getting quite cozy at a Stockholm nightclub called Rose. 

Murray would like all of you to calm down one second, because he claims there is nothing going on. He tells the Swedish site the following: 

We are only friends. We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.

They then pressed him further and inquired if this friendship could blossom into something more. That's when he stopped being so chatty and issued a no comment. 

Well, this may be a tad bit awkward. 

This very well could have been a chance meeting set up by mutual friends. The best way to sour a hookup would be to have the international media get a hold of it and ask on the status of date No. 1. 

Imagine going on one date and being asked exactly how it went and whether this relationship had legs. Poor Murray, the media may have gone and killed your game.
