Last week, Caps forward Brooks Laich and entertainment superstar Julianne Hough announced they were engaged, which became headline news everywhere. Today, Julianne (finally!) showed us the ring in a post on her personal blog.

And, wow. That thing is GIGANTIC.

Tuesday morning, Capitals heartthob Brooks Laich announced his engagement to star Julianne Hough. Because the super-famous Hough is a triple threat (actress/singer/dancer) and on one of network TV’s biggest shows (Dancing With The Stars), nearly every news outlet in the world covered the proposal, including TMZ, ABC World News, and NBC Nightly News.

That’s cool and all, but anyone can post an Instagram photo and relay the news that a couple is engaged. I need hard-hitting analysis. I need deep, incisive journalism. I need Access Hollywood’s comprehensive coverage of the proposal– an entire segment dedicated to explaining who the heck Brooks Laich is.

Billy Bush, take me on a sports journey.

This awful, terrible photoshop is by me and I’m not sorry.

What an incredible gesture for Michael to skip…

Brooks Laich hadn’t scored since January 7. Since then the $4.5 million a year player had been a healthy scratch and now a fourth liner. That bottom line, though, is filled with rejected top-sixers rather than talentless scrubs — one member of the Sabres organization quipped that it was better than Buffalo’s first line. On Saturday night, that line — Laich, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson — added Washington’s fourth tally of the night, Laich’s first goal in two months.

“I sort of flashed back to the first goal I ever scored in the NHL,” Laich told reporters after the game. “It was in Montreal and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. I got back to the bench and Glen Hanlon he says ‘congratulations.’ I was like ‘dude, I can’t stop smiling.’ He was like ‘good, that’s the way it’s supposed to be.’ This one sort of felt like that.”

Brooks Laich and Julianne Hough have been dating for a little over a year, and it seems to be going well despite it being a long-distance relationship– with Hough in Los Angeles and Laich in northern Virginia. Opposite coasts!

On Saturday, the couple, which I will refer to as Broolianne for the rest of this post, got to spend time together during Valentine’s Day– just because the NHL’s schedule-maker was kind to them.

During the day, Laich spent time at Hough’s home, and Broolianne took some lovely pictures for social media.

Capitals forward Brooks Laich had to run an errand in Arlington today. And he had two special helpers for his journey: Julianne Hough’s adorable dogs Harley and Lexi. This photo is notable because it appears the dogs might have helped Brooksie push the pedals and steer the vehicle. And that’s funny because hahaha c’mon, silly, dogs can’t drive cars!

One of the best parts of the Caps family skate Wednesday was when the NHL Network aired Brooks Laich skating with Hollywood girlfriend Julianne Hough. The couple held hands and giggled the entire time. They look positively blissful together. The honeymoon phase times 10.

At the end of the skate, the NHL Network caught up with Laich and Hough for what I believe was their first interview together.
