RYAN MILLER CATCHES HIMSELF A HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS
We at Stop Da Puck consider ourselves tough, he-man shot-blockers. But not always. Because if we have one soft spot it is for weddings -- especially ones involving goalies.
Our pal, Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, and Hollywood actress Noureen DeWulf got hitched at the Sunset Tower hotel in West Hollywood over Labor Day weekend. I like to see fellow goalies happy, especially ones who are great guys like Ryan, and you can tell from the pics it was an amazing day for him. (For those of you fashionistas, Noureen scored in Carolina Herrera and Ryan saved the day in a Varvatos tux.)
Guests included NHL'ers John Michael Liles, Tim Connolly, Adam Hall, Paul Gaustad, Pat Kaleta, Derek Roy and Ryan’s agent, former NHL great Mike Liut (yes, a goalie!). Longtime Miller family friend, actor/director Tim Busfield, didn’t dress up like his character Poindexter from the ‘80s classic Revenge of the Nerds, but the fact that he set up Ryan and Noureen a few years back was enough of a contribution to the night.
I can’t wait to see the happy couple again in my hometown of Buffalo on December 4th when I help host Ryan’s annual Catwalk for Charity soiree.
We at Stop Da Puck are told by sources that marriage can sometimes feel like the equivalent of a grueling pro hockey season — only without summers off. But if anyone can make his marriage a winning one, we think it’s superstar Ryan Miller.
