When I say the word "cheerleaders", what sports come to mind? NBA and NFL?
A little known fact is that a growing number of NHL teams are adopting the cheerleading trend, ever since the New York Islanders started the tradition a few years ago. Each team has a corny name for each of their squads, but to fans, they are simply known as Ice Girls.
Here are the 25 hottest ice girls in the NHL.
The Penguins are hot right now, and the same could be said about Annie.
The Florida Panthers might not make the playoffs this year, but with girls like Allie at games, selling tickets should not be a problem.
The Penguins make the list again with this beautiful brunette.
The Blue Jackets are an up-and-coming team, and with prospects like Kalli, the team will go places.
The Preds might be in a weak hockey market, but they do have one thing others team don't—southern belles.
Alex Ovechkin isn't the only hot item on the Caps anymore.
Jess is definitely not the Bruins' mascot.
Kristy is one of the legendary Islanders' Ice Girls. They started the tradition, and although I am a Ranger fan, I love them for that.
Vanessa is one of the reasons that men love SoCal.
Alison is one of the few original Islanders ice girls to make the list.
The second Caps ice girl on the list, Ashley could just be the missing piece for the Washington Capitals.
Exotic name for an exotic girl.
I love the L.A. Kings.
From all my research of Ice Girls, I have come to realize that the Atlanta Thrashers have the best overall group of the bunch. Just look at Kirstie!
Another example of why Atlanta's "Blue Crew" is the best in the game.
Gabby: The Princess of the Los Angeles Kings
Sophisticated yet gorgeous.
Sara: The Queen of the Los Angeles Kings
It's not surprising that the hottest ice girls can be found on Cali's teams.
The second Hurricane ice girl on the list, Maggie loves strutting her stuff on ice for the Canes.
Typical L.I. girl, and that's certainly not a bad thing now, is it?
Who doesn't love a lady in uniform?
Absolutely stunning! Oh, and I love women that like to show off their flexibility.
That's Jenn with two n's—not one. Rumor has it that she is the reason why the Wings make the playoffs every year.
...You should have dropped your jaws by now. There are so many things that I could say about Amanda and this picture.
1. She's Dutch
2. She's got the right assets
3. She would be from California
4. I now love the color magenta or whatever that shade of pink her lingerie is
