One of the best parts of the Caps family skate Wednesday was when the NHL Network aired Brooks Laich skating with Hollywood girlfriend Julianne Hough. The couple held hands and giggled the entire time. They look positively blissful together. The honeymoon phase times 10.
At the end of the skate, the NHL Network caught up with Laich and Hough for what I believe was their first interview together.
“I’m learning something here from her,” Laich said. “She’s a better skater than I am a dancer. She’s great. It transfers very naturally for her. She’s very, very athletic. The balance is great for her.”
Laich continued, “Some of the guys were razzing us and were like, ‘Are you guys going to do a routine?’ I said, ‘Yeah just wait. You’ll hear the music cue up and then get off the ice.'”
The razzing and pranking didn’t stop there. As Laich held up Hough in his arms to show off her new skates, Tom Wilson, a notorious prankster and jokester, skated up from behind and pulled Laich’s winter cap over his eyes.
I love this team.
