Fan IQ has an updated rundown of the many female conquests by NHL players: From Elisha Cuthbert to Anna Kournikova to that adorable Donna Jo "D.J." Tanner from "Full House." What you'll find is that musicians make up a surprising portion of the list: Kellie Pickler, Hilary Duff, Willa Ford and, of course, Paris Hilton.
According to the Toronto Sun, there's a chance we may add another name to the music side of the dating history: Country star, and proud Canadian lass, Shania Twain is rumored to be dating Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Curtis Joseph. From the Sun:
Hey, Cujo, you old dog, whose bed have your boots been under?
Maple Leafs backup goalie Curtis Joseph hasn't confirmed or denied that he and singer Shania Twain are an item.
If it's true, it raises a curious question: Given that her ex-husband is named Mutt, does Shania date only hounds? If so, that don't impress me much.
Not impressed, huh? We'll have you know that the best thing about being a woman is the prerogative to have a little Cujo on the sly. Or so we've heard.
Alas, this hockey/country love connection may be all hat and no cattle. Toronto Sun sportswriter Mike Zeisberger took his crack at the rumors, too:
Sources close to the situation insist that recent rumours are not true suggesting Maple Leafs goalie Curtis Joseph and country music icon Shania Twain have become an item.
Boo. Just when we were about to start floating couple nicknames. (Cujia? Shanjo?)
