Who's the Hottest Female Ice Hockey Player?

Picking the hottest female ice hockey player was challenging as many of them were popular among our readers. Our throne graces Anna Prugova because she ranked highest in our reader’s poll and also because of her drop-dead gorgeous face, strength, and fitness levels.

Prugova displays great strength and a lean body, both of which are important for ice hockey.

For our female hockey players and readers who wish to achieve a lean body and strength without packing on too much muscle, we highly recommend Powher.

This excellent pre-workout will help you stay energized throughout your workout without the post-caffeine crash.

It won't transform you to Progova overnight, but it will help you get closer to that ideal.
