I don’t know why I posed this as a question because the answer is absolutely, positively yes–Hillary Knight is the cutest women’s hockey player we’ve ever seen. An image macro of the Wisconsin graduate smiling in the photo above with the text, “Wins The Face Off / Before The Puck Drops” has been going viral all day today and it’s not so hard to see why. We’d say that she was “photogenic” but that’s not the case–she’s just flat-out cute.
Hillary is one of nine Wisconsin students who is competing in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and one of three Badgers playing on the women’s ice hockey team. And because their first game was a 9-0 win against Switzerland, we figured that they deserve a serious tip of the hat.
