Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, and we thought it was only fitting we celebrate with some Canadian cuties! Sure, there are hot Canadian celebrities we all ogle in the States, but our Northern neighbor has its own celebrity eye candy. From hockey players to musicians, these drool-worthy dudes may have slipped under your radar if you don't live in the country of Mounties and maple leaves. So get in the turkey day spirit early with the Canadians we are thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving.
It's amazing pro hockey player Sheldon, 37, doesn't melt ice as he plays; he's that hot. Currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks, he's best known for his slapshot — he set the unofficial NHL record for the hardest recorded shot in 2009.
A hottie who can handle wild animals? It doesn't get much sexier than that! Ontario-born Dave, 38, is an animal trainer, entertainer, and TV producer with his own production company.
Musician Raine Maida, 43, is Our Lady Peace's lead vocalist and main songwriter. He was born in Ontario and has been heavily involved with charities for a decade. Sadly, he's taken, as he's been married to singer Chantal Kreviazuk since 1999.
Too-cute Sid, 26, is captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins and has such a promising hockey career his nickname is "The Next One" after Wayne Gretzky's nickname "The Great One."
Jesse, 29, was a VJ for Canada's version of MTV, MuchMusic. Before he was a host for the music TV station, he was promoting concerts, booking bands, and running a music venue. In August, he was hired as an E! News correspondent. Gotta love a hard-working hottie!
Retired pro hockey player Sean, 33, is as well-known for his skills on the ice as he is for his controversial statements. One of these had to do with calling out another player for having his "sloppy seconds," meaning ex-girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert. But it's not just his good looks that redeem him in our eyes; he's also spoken out for marriage equality.
At only 25 years old, pro hockey player Jonathan is one of the youngest captains of the NHL, as he has been captain of the Chicago Blackhawks — who won the Stanley Cup this year — since he was 20. Plus, he looks smokin' hot in a suit!
If you go for guys with a sense of humor, you'll be all about Jon, 33, who's a man of many talents — including acting, rapping, and stand-up comedy — as well as a star of the show The League. See Jon in all his inappropriate glory as he performs "The Birthday Song" on the show.
Pro hockey player Carey is 26 and plays for the Montreal Canadians. Hey, we appreciate his skills with a stick, but look at those lips!
Talented songwriter and rock musician Matt, 42, has been heavily involved in the Canadian music scene for quite a while, first as the lead singer for the Matthew Good Band in the '90s and now as a solo artist. Not only does he rock the charts with his sexy voice, but he's also a political activist and intelligent, quick-witted blogger.
