Happy Birthday, Logan!

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.)

Happy Birthday, Jacob Trouba!

If you didn’t know who Jacob Trouba was before reading this post, pay careful attention.

Today’s his 20th birthday! Oddly enough, I didn’t know he was only 20 until he posted it on Twitter.

Reasons you and I didn’t know this:

1. Jacob played a year at the University of Michigan.

If you know anything about college hockey, then you know freshmen are typically 20-21 years old. However, he entered college at the ripe (more like normal) age of 18, where he was an outstanding defenseman for the Wolverines.

2. Jacob’s represented his country on the international stage and came back with some serious hardware.

That’s really impressive for an 18-year-old. Especially since he figured out how to score against Team Canada.

3. Jacob and Zach Bogosian are roommates in Winnipeg. Aka, I just thought he was a rookie living with a veteran guy. Then again, the maturity level between Jacob and Zach combines to about late middle school-high school years. Seriously, just look at their Instagram’s.

4. Apparently Jacob can’t grow a mustache. So I, logically relating everything to Sidney Crosby, thought that he just had baby-face syndrome, meaning facial hair is not an option. So this happened:

And then the Jets did this about it: Pass the Mic: Episode 1 (Just wait for Zach to start talking to Jacob. The two can’t control themselves.)

So more or less, we all should love Jacob Trouba and wish him a Happy 20th, because you’re only in your 20’s once and rumor has it, it’s a pretty good time. Except when we make a few mistakes along the way.
