Brendan Gallagher Shared A Cute Photo With A Possible Girlfriend & Here's What We Know

Love may be in the air for Montreal Canadiens player Brendan Gallagher, who posted an adorable photo of himself with a possible girlfriend on Instagram.

The number 11 right-winger has been historically private about his love life with his last "media courtship" dating back to 2017 when he was spotted with Montreal's Vanessa Grimaldi, a former The Bachelor contestant, which could be why the photo sparked thousands of "likes," hundreds of comments and a whole lot of buzz.

In the photo, the pair pose side-by-side in front of a lit-up tree. It's captioned, "She'd rather be in Florida." While nothing about this blatantly reveals that the mystery blonde is Gallagher's new boo, the comments certainly hint at it.

Several other hockey players were quick to comment like Nick Suzuki, Max Domi and Jake Evans with Evans commenting, "You guys should come visit." Julie Petry, the wife of Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry, wrote "Aww" with a smiley face.

But it's a comment from the woman herself, identified on Instagram as Emma Fortin, that shows that — regardless of their relationship status — there's a lot of affection between the pair. It says, "lav uuu" with two heart emojis.

According to information available on social media, Emma Fortin aka Emmanuelle Fortin is a PhD candidate studying management and strategy at HEC Montréal. She is buddies with Anndya from L'ile de l'amour, according to her Instagram highlights.

Fortin also shared the same photo as Gallagher as an Instagram story on Thursday, making sure to add four heart emojis.

Our team sent the potential couple a request for comment. We will update the article when we get a response.

With the Omicron variant running amok in our province, hockey's governing body in the province, Hockey Québec, has made the difficult decision to cancel all hockey games in Quebec — professional and amateur — until January 9.

According to a press release, "The members of Hockey Québec's board of directors have decided to temporarily suspend league games as of today, until January 9, 2022, inclusive. Practices will still be allowed."

The Montreal Canadiens have been dealt another blow. The team has announced that Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins at the Bell Centre is postponed until further notice.

It's déja vu. The Montreal Canadiens announced that following a public health request, they will have no fans in the Bell Centre for their Thursday, December 16 game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"Faced with the spiralling rise of COVID-19 cases in the region, late this afternoon the Montreal Canadiens organization received a request from Quebec public health officials to host tonight's game against the Philadelphia Flyers in a closed setting with no fans in attendance at the Bell Centre," the team said in a press release.

Hockey nicknames are ubiquitous in the NHL. Pretty much everyone has one. But let's face it, most of them are just names like "Gally" — stale, unoriginal and based on the guy's last name. But sometimes, a hockey nickname comes around that's so genius and so telling of the man behind it that you just have to stand up and applaud.

Cole Caufield's nickname exists in this pantheon of genius hockey names. Apparently, the diminutive forward was dubbed "The Cock" by the one and only Shea Weber.
