Wayne Simmonds Is the NHL First Star of Week, Bryzgalov Star of the Month

Wayne Simmonds is your NHL First Star of the Week and he looks like a million bucks.

The Wayne Train may not be very pretty at the moment by society’s standards but in the hockey world it’s tough to get more beautiful than Simmonds after the weekend he had on the ice.

Today, he was rewarded for his leave-it-all-on-the-ice style of play as Simmonds was named the NHL First Star of the Week. [Update: Ilya Bryzgalov has been named the First Star of the Month, as well.]

The photo you’re looking it is of Wayne this morning after scoring a goal off his face on Saturday and taking a couple of punches to the kisser on Sunday.

All in a weekend’s work for the Philadelphia Flyer. 

As my man Rev said on Twitter, “I want my unborn and yet to be conceived daughter to marry Wayne Simmonds.”
