Henrik Lundqvist, Sean Avery make Forbes’ best dressed athletes list

I feel comfortable discussing just about anything about hockey, but get a little lost when placed out of my element.

For instance, I’ll be honest: I can offer almost nothing in the field of fashion. Sure, I can tie a tie (sort of) and pick out an acceptable combination of dress shirt and sport coat (maybe), but most days the sloppy blogger stereotypes fit my sloppy clothing choices.

So in this case, I’ll just have to take’s word for it. The site named its list of the 15 best dressed athletes in sports, with guys you would expect (Tom Brady, LeBron James, etc.) and two hockey players: Henrik Lundqvist and Sean Avery of the New York Rangers.

Lundqvist makes sense because he’s Swedish, handsome, etc ... but Avery is a bit of a surprise despite his internship at Vogue. I faintly recall that not too long ago, some snooty designer named him among the worst dressed in hockey.

But I guess it’s all subjective, though, right?
