12 NHL Valentines you’re guaranteed to love
Joe St. Germain

Mmmmm. Take a deep breath, dear readers. Do you feel it? It’s a beautiful day outside. Birds are singing. Flowers are blooming. (Even if they’re doing so under a few feet of snow.) On days like this, hockey fans like us … should be professing our love.

That’s right: it’s almost Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is a day of passion and romance, of sharing meaningful moments with the special someone in your life. It’s a day where we should all take the time to tell someone we love them — our souls possess an astonishing capacity for love, and it’s something we could all benefit from tapping into every now and then.

Unless you’re like me. Then it’s a day of biting loneliness and waiting for discount candy. And, in this case, creating a series of pun-themed NHL Valentines!

So, yeah, pretty worth it.

In the spirit of the Valentine’s Day season, I’ve hand-crafted a full dozen NHL-themed Valentines for you to enjoy. Remember the good ol’ days of giving out cheap paper Valentines with Power Rangers or Disney characters on them to everyone in your class? Well this is like that, except for they’re all digital and hockey themed. It’s also less likely to be devastating when Jessica Klein (*swoon*) totally “forgets” yours at home even though she’s the only one you really wanted one from in the first place, JESSICA!

Ahem. Please enjoy this beautiful bouquet of NHL Valentines, and feel free to leave your suggestions for others in the comments. Happy Valentine’s Day!
