The “Hockey Wives” are returning to W Network this April to take on the same old hockey game.
Returning to the Canadian fan-favourite, which will cross international boarders to Austria, Germany and Russia, are: Maripier Morin, the fiancee of Brandon Prust, who moves from the NHL to DEL in Germany; and Emilie Blum, the new mom and wife of Jonathan Blum, who similarly goes abroad to play for the KHL in Russia.
Speaking of the upcoming season, Montreal’s Morin, who got engaged last season, reveals that fans will get a better glimpse into her relationship with Prust, as they try to make their long-distance relationship work. “I think the fans can expect a lot more intimacy and even more personal history from Brandon and I,” she tells ET Canada.
This season, the show is adding four new faces, including Martine Auclair-Vlasic, the wife of Marc-Edouard Vlasic of the San Jose Sharks (NHL); Catherine LaFlamme, the wife of Kris LeTang of the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL); Erica Lundmark, the wife of Jamie Lundmark of the EC KAC (Austria); and Vanessa Vandal, the girlfriend of David Perron of the St. Louis Blues (NHL).
Following some of the most high-profile players in professional hockey and their wives, the new season is set to see Vlasic help her husband navigate his booming career, including celebrating his World Cup of Hockey victory. While LaFlamme launches a new children’s clothing line and supports her husband’s consecutive Stanley Cup wins.
Meanwhile, both familiar with long-distance relationships, Lundmark will work to keep her three children and career together while her husband plays in Austria, and Vandal will move back to St. Louis after her boyfriend is traded to the St. Louis Blues, only to later find out that she’s pregnant again.
“I was a little bit scared about it at first,” Vandal admits to ET Canada about revealing her life on the show. “I was like, ‘Oh my god, how am I going to react? Am I going to look weird?’ I always say what I think, and don’t always think.”
Watch Morin, LaFlamme, Vandal, Lundmark and Auclair-Vlasic answer our rapid fire questions below!
“Hockey Wives” season three will premiere its nine-episode season on April 19 at 10 p.m. ET on W Network.
