Foxy Friday: Alex Wennberg

Sometimes when you post a Foxy Friday, you immediately get a text message saying you’re wrong. That there is one choice and one choice only, and that choice is clear.

People are so demanding.


“What are the two house rules? Number One: No dating till you graduate. Number Two: No dating till you graduate.”

Foxy Friday: Alexander Wennberg

In defense of these texts, Alex is just about the only Swedish NHL player we haven’t featured.  Also, we have been in the market for a new intern.  Alex is 20 (skip that part), plays in the Blue Jackets organization and, well…


“Well, now that you’ve seen “the plan”, I’m gonna go and show “the plan” to someone else.”

We don’t typically feature AHL players, but Alex was sent down to Springfield just last weekend and I don’t have a backup plan for this week’s post. Also he scored his first AHL point last night, so we’re breaking the rules this time.  And laws.


“You are amazingly self-assured, has anyone ever told you that?”

Did I mention Alex is 20? You have the right to remain silent. I’ll be sending this post to my 17-year old niece, who loves boybands and styled hair (she’s a smart girl).  It should send her shrieking to a Springfield Falcons game.  She’s not allowed to accept a ride home though.


“You’re not going out and getting jiggy with some guy, I don’t care how dope his ride is.”

I don’t care how v-neck some guy’s Euroshirt is.

"Can we, for two seconds, ignore the fact that you're severely unhinged and discuss my need for a night of teenage normalcy?"

“Can we, for two seconds, ignore the fact that you’re severely unhinged and discuss my need for a night of teenage normalcy?”

And none of this looking all innocent-yet-filth-rich, okay?


“Damn, I was going for thoughtful.”

But I will allow Alex to rescind his selection of Justin Beiber over One Direction, because this was 2013 and I presume he’s come to his senses by now.

Old Britney all the way, though.

Follow Alex on Twitter @wenniss, or Google Image search him and enjoy the related result suggestions: Beau Bennett, Gabe Landeskog, Eric Gudbranson.  Happy Friday, our work here is done.


“I happen to like being adored, thank you!”

    I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?

    I don’t think you’ve featured Erik Karlsson yet for Foxy Friday. He’s definitely deserving. If you’re not following him on Tumblr you’re missing out, he responds to a lot of posts. Give erikkarlsson65 a follow. You know there can never be enough gorgeous Swedish hockey players.

  3. Yes. YES. YAAAASSSSSSSS. Lock me up and throw. Away. The. Key.

    I burn, I pine, I perish.

    May I nominate Darcy Kuemper or Marco Scandella. Sorry Sweden, you can’t beat the Canadian boys 🙂

  6. I was just waiting for him to appear in a foxy Friday 🙂

    Holy crap! this guy makes Gabriel Landeskog look like a rotten turnip in a urine-soaked parking lot. Thank you! May I suggest Eddie Lack? For reasons. Also, it would be really fun to do a FF on Phil Kessel. The man, the myth, the mockery. And how, even though he’s so awkward and grumpycat, he’s also really adorable.
