09. Sidney Crosby and his dog, Sam (332 notes)
08. Evgeni Malkin and a puppy (348 notes)

And the reigning champion with 1,491 notes is…

Niklas Hjalmarsson with a kitten! Because what’s cuter than a Swede smooching a tiny cat, right?

* Not counting reblogs (since I didn’t originally post them, it’s harder to figure out how many notes came posting them on this site) or videos (because I can’t put them into this fancy picture collage).
