Carolina Hurricanes hockey player Jeff Skinner is apparently a big Taylor Swift fan. During Taylor’s “Red” concert tour stop in Raleigh on Friday night, Jeff gave her a red Hurricanes jersey as a gift.
According to Yahoo Sports Jeff better watch his hockey back! They have found an apparent Taylor Swift NHL Curse!!!
via Yahoo Sports:
- In 2009, members of the Pittsburgh Penguins gave Taylor a “SWIFT 09” jersey. Those members were Max Talbot, Jordan Staal, Alex Goligoski and Tyler Kennedy. Four years later, all four were ex-Penguins, disappearing from the photo like the McFly family as Ms. Swift clutches her sweater.
- Taylor also attended a Los Angeles Kings game in 2009. They missed the playoffs.
- She revealed the Nashville Predators third jerseys in 2009. They were eliminated in the first round.
- Taylor once wore a Leafs jersey. They haven’t won the Cup since 1967 …
NHL Curse or not Taylor still has what it takes to lead the CMA Nominations this year! Taylor has been nominated for six CMA Awards.
