Elisha Cuthbert was already a familiar face to the public from her role in Fox’s 24 and from the film, “The Girl Next Door.” Many Canadians are in the NHL, so it’s no surprise that Elisha (a Canadian) met the love of her life and fellow Canadian Dion Phaneuf, in 2008.
Phaneuf and Cuthbert married in 2013, sealing their standing as one of the “it” couples of the NHL. The celeb pair welcomed daughter Zaphire in 2017 and remains a happy family today.
Drew Doughty & Nicole Arruda
Most everyone loves the story of high school sweethearts who managed to stay together long after graduation. An alternate captain for the Los Angeles Kings and defenseman Drew Doughty met his wife (Nicole Arruda) while the two were in high school. The couple stuck together through thick and thin and eventually tied the knot.
The couple spends most of their time in Los Angeles but are still loyal Canadians and keep family first. Doughty has said that no matter what happens on the ice, coming home to the family always lifts him up. The pair share two kids, and Doughty confessed that he enjoys being a father and that Arruda makes fatherhood a wonderful experience for him.
Jarret Stoll & Erin Andrews
ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews has had a tremendously successful career in the male-dominated field. She was a correspondent before joining ESPN full-time in 2004. She moved to Fox Sports in 2012 and then became the lead sideline reporter for the Fox NFL broadcasting team.
It’s no surprise then that Andrews ended up marrying an athlete. New York Rangers NHL player Jarret Stoll first set his eyes on Andrews in 2012 and, after asking retired NFL player and friend Michale Strahan to ask Erin out on his behalf...she turned him down. But Stoll wasn’t ready to give up and, after approaching her after one of her broadcasts, the two finally went out. The couple became engaged in 2016 and married in 2017.
Mike Fisher & Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood became America’s sweetheart songstress after she won American Idol in 2005. With her large spotlight, some may forget that she is married to former Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators star Mike Fisher.
Underwood and Fisher met thanks to Underwood’s bassist Mark Childers who set the two up on a blind date. Carrie was nervous and reluctant at first, so the two first met backstage during one of Carrie’s meet-and-greets. Carrie and Mike ended up hitting it off quite well, getting engaged in December 2009 and marrying just eight months later. The pair share two sons and appear to have one of the best celebrity marriages to this day.
