NHL Stars Henrik Zetterberg and Victor Hedman Blast Russia’s Anti-Gay Laws

Hot Hockey Players

Two (very humpy) National Hockey League stars Henrik Zetterberg (above left) of the Detroit Red Wings and Victor Hedman (above right) of the Tampa Bay Lightning have gone on record blasting Russia’s anti-gay law and its impact on the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics, Detroit Free Press reports:

The Detroit Free Press reports:

Zetterberg, the Detroit Red Wings captain who will likely represent Sweden in the Olympics, reportedly told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet that the law is ‘awful, just awful’

“I think that everyone should be able to be themselves,” Zetterberg said. “It’s unbelievable that it can be this way in this time, especially in a big country like Russia.”

Fellow Swedish player Victor Hedman, who plays for the Tampa Bay Lightning, also had strong things to say about the law: “That’s completely wrong, we’re all humans. No one should have a say in what way you’re sexually oriented.”

Thank you guys for being real men and speaking up!

This is just one more reason why hockey players are HOT.
