10 Stunning Pictures of Brooks Laich’s New Girlfriend, Julianne Hough
Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich Are Now an Item
The 2013-14 NHL season has been relatively tough for Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich, as the veteran forward has struggled with injuries and inconsistent form. Through the Sochi Olympics break, Laich had compiled a mere nine points in 44 games played, a dreadful total for a guy that the Capitals have been able to rely on as a second-line presence for much of the last five years and expected 40-50 points from.
This has played a role in the fact that the Capitals are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference, and they need more from the 30-year old the rest of the way. Fortunately, Laich has had a positive Olympic break as he has begun dating musician, actress and former Dancing With the Stars winner Julianne Hough. The two have been spotted out in Los Angeles multiple times in the last week, with Laich saying this about his new girlfriend: "she’s a cool cool gal. She’s just a sweetheart. Very loving, very giving. She puts so much great out into the world. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”
And while there may not be any direct correlation between this new relationship and an uptick in Laich's performance for the rest of the NHL season, Capitals fans can hope there is. They will want to get to know the forward's new sweetheart, who is certainly more well known to people who watch ET rather than the NHL Network.
Keeping this in mind, I have compiled 10 gorgeous pictures of Hough which will surely drop the jaws of sports fans around the world. Enjoy!
