So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.
It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
Even Dario Saric is getting in on the Joel Embiid All-Star Game craze.
After the Sixers' 113-104 win over the Bucks Monday, Saric made the case for Embiid in a postgame interview with CSN's Molly Sullivan.
"Joel, for sure, he deserves to be in All-Star Game ... he's the guy who changed the sport in Philly," Saric said.
"And if we get Ben [Simmons] to him, we got good couples for so many years."
Saric definitely trusts The Process.
"He deserve everything ... he's maybe the best big man in the league."
We'll find out if the fans like him as much as Saric does Monday at midnight when fan voting ends.
