Dion Phaneuf pops the question to Elisha Cuthbert
Actress Elisha Cuthbert is joining the celebrity hockey wives club after it was announced she’s set to wed the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf.
The Leafs confirmed to the Sun yesterday that the 29-year-old former 24 star will marry the team’s 27-year-old captain, whom she began dating in 2008.
The couple staged a surprise engagement party for friends and family at the New Glasgow Lobster restaurant in Prince Edward Island Sunday night.
Cuthbert, who stars in sitcom Happy Endings, has always been a fan of hockey’s leading men — the Canadian actress had previously dated Sean Avery.
She’ll become the third leading lady to wed a hockey player in recent years — Carrie Underwood and Hilary Duff both married stars of the sport.
