Looks like Dustin Byfuglien’s offseason training regime is going well

In late July, Brough passed along this photo of Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien arriving in a Minnesota court to face impaired boating charges.

Lost in the story of those charges being dropped (Byfuglien plead guilty to a careless boating misdemeanor) was the shape Big Buff appeared to be in -- specifically, the roundness of it.

Now it turns out that courthouse shot wasn’t the only pic capturing Byfuglien’s offseason form.

In July, Big Buff attended the wedding of former ‘Hawks teammate Dave Bolland and later showed up in this slideshow along another ex-Chicago mate, Brent Seabrook:

The Bolland nuptials took place on July 13 -- nearly two months ago -- and to be fair, Byfuglien has a history of bulking up during the summer only to arrive at camp at (or near) his playing weight.

Case in point: Buff reportedly weighed 286 pounds upon his 2011 arrest in Minnesota, but reported to Jets camp at 266.

"[Byfuglien’s] powerful and he gets around the ice,” Jets defenseman Mark Stuart told the Winnipeg Free Press at the time. “He’s fit and he won’t be winded. When you look at him, you’re not seeing a guy that’s cut. That’s not his body.

“Even if he wanted, he couldn’t be chiseled.”

Fair enough. We should also point out that, based on a picture from Winnipeg captain Andrew Ladd’s Instragram account, Byfuglien’s size could be all about the angles.

Or, angling.
