Brooks Laich: How Did He Score Julianne Hough?!?

by at .  Updated at .

Brooks Laich plays hockey for the Washington Capitals. But that's not why he's in the news these days.

The 30-year old instead of making headlines for playing tonsil hockey with Julianne Hough.

How did the professional athlete land this former Dancing with the Stars pro? Who is Brooks Laich?!? Let's rundown a few facts about the very lucky center...

He's from Saskatchewan and is especially close to his father, who served as a coach throughout his childhood.

He's friends with Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears, who introduced him to Hough after learning the beauty was single.

He plays guitar and is a fan of country music, something he has in common with his new squeeze!

He's a huge golfer and says Tiger Woods is his favorite athlete. For Hough's sake, let's hope Laich doesn't also admire Woods' moves off the course.

He's charitable. Laich raises money for the National MS Society and last year co-chaired its MS Achievers program. He also supports Athletes Against Autism.

"She's a cool, cool gal," Laich said about Hough during a recent radio show. She's just a sweetheart, very loving, very giving. She puts so much great out into the world. I'm a pretty lucky guy."

That's for sure. We sort of hate you, Brooks Laich.
