Not-so-obvious statement of the day: I love Logan Couture.
No one knows this because I don’t tweet about him as often as I like. Usually while he’s playing on the west coast, I’m dead asleep here in Boston. (Don’t forget, I am a college student.)
But that’s my only excuse (and hardly even a valid one). Back to Logan though!
Today is his 25th birthday!!
He’s now 25, and you’re saying “so what?” I’ll tell you what, every hockey fan needs to have a deep appreciation for Logan, his hockey skills, and personality.
In case you missed it, Logan got some attention for saying his celebrity crush was Selena Gomez.
But what’s even worse, he got overlooked during the 2012 All-Star Game so many times, that he ended up being the last pick in the draft.
The entire time I was staring longingly at the TV, waiting for his name to be called. (Shame on the team captains that year.) At least he took the time to thank me.
So you’re wondering what he was doing at the ASG. Well, he’s actually a great hockey player. And even though I can’t watch as many of the Sharks games as I’d like to, he never fails to find the highlight reel.
His rookie year, Logan was nominated for the Calder Trophy because why not?
Logan’s basically been a stud his entire life. (Thank you Sharks for posting these bad boys.)
Logan also has a great sense of humor. Do yourself a favor and give him a follow on Twitter @Logancouture
I hope you have the best 25th birthday ever, Logan!
