adorable russian hockey players i love

small-summer-child  asked:

So, I really only discovered ice hockey this season, and I FUCKIN LOVED IT, but I feel like I'm really missing out for not knowing who all the pens boys are, so if you have time/inclination to take pity on me and maybe give me a quick rundown on the who's who of the pens in terms of name, nickname, number and maybe fun facts? Also, the boys won and I'm so proud I can't even <3

alright i’m gonna try to keep this short but i love every single one of them with my whole entire heart so srry if it gets rambly

So I may be watching this fight to the Stanley Cup a bit more closer than I generally would.

I may have fallen in love with a tall feisty Russian player on that road. (And his fancy little hockey husband >_>)

I may have started writing a fic about Jack speaking in broken English because of said Russian hockey player and I’m currently conflicted in finishing it or not because it’s so past my Jack comfort level; he’s turned into an adorable immigrant that’s bad at English but really just a gentle giant that has a first meeting with Brock and the moment ends up pissing Brock off but they become friends soon after.  I can’t even deal with it and this fic has gone from a 2k mark to past 8k I don’t know what my life is anymore. >:(
