Normally, November marks the second month of the NHL season, but this year it’s the offseason. The NHL is currently examining the safest way to conduct the 2020-21 season during the pandemic.
Several players and their wives wished their followers Happy Thanksgiving and also shared what they’re grateful for.
Lauren Oshie shared professional photos of the family taken at the beach. In the first photo, Lauren kisses Lyla, the couple’s oldest daughter; in the second, she cradles Leni; and in the third, she holds Campbell – their only son. The final photo is a family photo of everyone. “Feeling oh so thankful,” she wrote on the photos.
On Thanksgiving Eve, Lauren shared photos of the family on their new couch at their McLean home.
