Where would they be if they werent NHL'ers

Imagine if every player in the NHL was not a hockey player, what kind of occupation would you think they would have based on appearance and/or personality? Reasoning would be nice but not required


I'll start.

Mike Fisher - Lumber jack, has a very square jaw and him in a plaid shirt would look very outdoorsy

Sergei Gonchar - Chemist, his circular face/head makes him look like some sort of chemist (I dont know why but it does)

Kessel - Pizza delivery guy, he has that high school boyish look

Jerome Iginla - triathlete, he looks fit and just looks like a person who jogs alot

Dion Phaneuf - the backup actor to the caveman in the gieco commercials.

Karlsson - NASCAR racer, slim body, long hair just looks like one

Scott Gomez - baker, looks doughy

Chris Neil - dentist

i see patrick kane in some sort of union...sheetmetal worker or something like that.

and zdeno chara would be fulfilling his dream of being an actor, citing jaws from the bond movies as his biggest influence

Ya, a lot of NHLer are lucky they have the gift of being good enough to play hockey professionally because they would be screwed if they didn't

for instance, Taylor Hall....he'd probably still be in the 7th grade

Lundqvist would be a model for Armani or something like that

Callahan would be a landscaper.

Kovakchuk's mom is a dentist. Maybe he picks up the profession?

I would assume he would be pretty well off in life even if he wasnt in the NHL
