Okay, here’s the down and dirty on this up and coming NHL rookie. He signed as a free agent with the Dallas Stars on May 8, 2008. He’s 23 years old, 6’2″ tall, and 203 lbs. He’s Swedish. And he’s dreamy.
Fabian (yeah, I’d like to be on a first name basis with him) became the third player in NHL history to score a hat trick in his debut against the Nashville Predators on October 15, 2008. And his third shot was the game-winner!

He’s tied for 12th overall with 5 goals this year. His next game is against the Minnesota Wild, my hometown team, on October 29, 2008. Oh, who to root for? It’s tough to have such dilemmas. Enjoy!
