Sergei Fedorov was indeed mar-
ried to Anna Kournikova.
Another Red Wing, Luc
Robitaille, gets more publicity these
days for his attractive singer of a
Then there are Vitaly Vishnevski
and Ruslan Salei of the Anaheim
Mighty Ducks who appear in ESPN:
The Magazine with two stunning
blondes on their arms ... despite the
athletes having a few missing teeth
and beaten faces.
So what is it about hockey players
and gorgeous women? Is it the
money? The lifestyle? Their stick-
handling ability? The mullets?
Apparently, it is much simpler
"They say (hockey players are)
different," Michigan sophomore
Milan Gajic said. "Everyone says
we're different people, and I guess
it's saying opposites attract. We're
just different guys, we're not afraid
to say what we want to say, and we
don't hold anything back."
As for Gajic, himself?
"I'll be the first to admit that I'm
a wacky kid, so if I can find a girl
that'll marry me and love me - or
even one that looks like Anna - I
wouldn't drop her for a second,"
Gajic said. "I guess Fedorov's in a
Unfortunately, Gajic may have
more time to look for that special
lady. With an injury to his left knee
in last Friday's 4-0 loss to Michigan
State, Gajic found himself out of Sat-
urday night's game, and he is now
fighting to get his starting job back
after sophomore Charlie Henderson
filled in with success for him.
"Charlie came in and he played
well," Gajic said. "If we're winning,
there's not really any point (to put-
ting me back in). I would love to
Milan Gaijc may not be In the lineup this weekend, but that's not going to stop him
from looking for someone just like Anna.
come back in and play. As long as we
keep on winning ... it's going to be
hard to get back in the starting line-
up. A lot of people say you can't lose
your job to injury, but if the team's
playing well, what can you do?"
Before the winter break, Gajic
endured a scoring slump (three
goals, five assists and a plus-minus
rating of minus-two in 16 games)
and an academic suspension
imposed by Michigan coach Red
Berenson. Most of his publicity to
that point had been anything but
After the break, however, Gajic
found a home on a line with sopho-
mores David Moss and Jason Ryz-
nar, where his numbers flourished
(6-4-10 and a rating of plus-5 with
Moss and Ryznar for 15 games).
Until last weekend, the trio had
played together the most out of any
line this semester. But now, one hit
on a knee that was.injured (torn
MCL) three years ago in juniors lit-
erally 180-ed Gajic back to where
he was at the end of December.
"I got the puck down low, (David)
Moss took my wing, then I came
around the net - and I guess the
guy was chasing me - and then I
passed it to Moss right by the
Cheeze-it's sign (at Yost Ice Arena,"
Gajic said. "I was still looking at
(Moss), expecting to get the puck
back, because I was busting through
the middle. (Michigan State's) Colin
Fretter came from the other side and
turned me ass-over-teakettle. I did a
complete flip in the air. Every time
my left knee gets hit kind of weird, I
always have a little pain, because I
never gave it as much time (to heal)
as I should have."
- So as Gajic fights for playing
time with Henderson and junior
Joey Kautz, whose name emerged in
practice this week, he knows that
unless Michigan is losing without
him, he can wait with content for
the team's success. Although the
sophomore is uncertain about his
ice time, other developments from
the weekend have left him confident
on one thing: If he or any hockey
player wanted her, Kournikova's
"You'd have to have some serious
problems if you said no, (to Anna),"
Gajic said. "Enrique (Iglesias)?
Come on. Enrique? The smallest
guy on our team could probably
beat the hell out of Enrique."
Anna Kournikova is no longer married to
Sergei Federov, giving Milan Gajlc hope.
