And after the weekend, it appears the stunt worked. According to TMZ, Teigen has taken the forward back.

“I was very flattered, I thought it was really sweet, I thought it was really clever,” Teigen said in a video interview with TMZ. “I got a lot of texts and I saw a lot of it on TMZ and on the internet. It was pretty funny.”

Teigen said she thought it was "cute."

“We’re working things out, he’s a good guy,” she added.

The billboard was over 1 Oak, which TMZ says is one of the hottest places in Los Angeles.

It seems like it's fun to be young, rich and good looking and getting ready for a season of playing with Jack Eichel or Ryan O'Reilly. We didn't try to reach Dustin Byfuglien for comment, but think his response would have looked something like this.
