Profile: Jeff Halpern

Suggestions by Penny from New York, Mike from DC, Blair form New Jersey, Michael from Maryland, and Ben from Maryland.


  1. Interestingly, Halpern actually is from the Washington, DC area; which for hockey is about as rare as having a Jewish player (metro NYC is about as far south as you see an NHL player's origin's, and even that is pretty rare; Massachusetts, upstate NY, upper Midwest and obviously Canada are a lot more common).

  2. However, in the tradition of Jewish athletes (or athletes in general, or Jewish men in general), he married a very WASPy blonde bombshell, former Redskins cheerleader Kelly Cornwell. Let's hear it for shiksappeal!

  3. I take that back... apparently, she converted. Whoa. Bucking traditions all around.
