Alexander was also featured in a 2010 ad campaign for suit maker Hickey Freeman. He’s totally the background on my computer right now! Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the images were featured in publications including the Wall Street Journal Magazine, GQ and Details. I don’t think we can thank Sweden enough for producing such a beautiful, talented man! 😉 Before I close this post, I also want to give shout outs to H&M and IKEA, both awesome Swedish companies (despite the fact that some IKEA furniture is impossible to assemble).
Each has gone at least one season without a captain. On the surface, one may think the individuals or things have very little to do with one another. Some people sent me messages wondering what they had in common. Last week I posted on Instagram a photo with a few random names written on a piece of paper.They range from films to musicians to professional athletes…what could they possibly have in common??? Anyone who is connected to me via Facebook knows of my obsession with finding a Swedish hockey playing husband.Alexander Skarsgård Yes, I’m giving the lovely Alexander Skarsgård his own section in this post. Most people know Alexander as Eric Northman on the HBO series True Blood.However, after doing some research I found out a few more interesting facts about him. His unit primarily dealt with anti-sabotage and anti-terrorism in Stockholm."Ever since I got (to Detroit), I've had a room full of leaders with (Chris) Chelios and (Kris) Draper and (Brendan) Shanahan.Everyone who has been a part of this team since I got here, they basically are leaders." Zetterberg's predecessors as captain include Sid Abel, Ted Lindsay, Red Kelly, Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio, Marcel Dionne, Yzerman and Lidstrom.A cool tidbit about Hjalmarsson; he recently wed stylist Elina Cassell and she has an awesome fashion blog!Other notable Swedish athletes in the NHL include Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings and Nicklas Bäckström of the Washington Capitals.
