If there’s one thing that every Canadian loves, it’s a good romance on the ice skating rink. Yes, what raises the temperature more in an icy situation than a cute couple that are just emanating adorable lust for one another? It just makes good sense, and also happens to make for some damn fine ice-skating. So, when an exceptionally cure couple come along that also happen to be masters in the rink, everyone sits up and takes notice. It’s almost like the Hollywood celebrity couple situation, only with more ice and a great deal more skating.
With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the cuter, more noticeable couples in the Canadian ice-skating world.
Denny and Josie Morrison
Speed skating may not be as visually romantic as figure skating, but Denny and Josie Morrison sure manage to make it a little cuter. The pair happens to be incredible speed-skaters, so much so that they will be heading to the Olympics soon.
But hang on a second, the two share a surname? That’s right, this pair of remarkable skaters will not only both be heading to the Olympics, they also happen to be married. It’s not often that a married couple are both incredible enough at a sport to be heading to the Olympics, at the same time, but in this case it just happens to be true. And don’t they make the cutest couple?
Eric Radford And Luis Fenero
From one cute couple to another, Eric Radford and Luis Fenero are every bit the most perfect pair you could imagine. Eric Radford is, of course, the first openly gay figure skater to win a gold medal at an Olympics. And, now that he is engaged to Luis Fenero, a Spanish Olympic figure skater, it seems like the guy is going from strength to strength.
The two got engaged last year, and will be tying the knot soon.

Perhaps one of the most adored couples in Canadian sports, Charles Hamelin and Marianne St-Gelais are known for sharing darling smooches during crucial moments in games. The first kiss, happening eight years ago, instantly went viral, given that it was the moment the two announced to the world they were a couple. More smooches have been shared since, and one can almost hear Canada collectively fawning.
It’s not all smooches and fawning, however, as the two are both professional athletes, and the good must be taken with the bad. Marianne has made clear that she will always be there to cheer for her partner, but has to focus on her own career, despite what happens in his career. True athletes, and a beautiful couple.
Caroline Ouellette and Julie Chu
And the last cute couple on our list are Caroline Ouellette and Julie Chu. Neither is technically a current athlete in Canada, but both are former captains for women’s hockey teams in the United States and Canada. The two are every bit as adorable as one could hope for, and recently announced that they have a baby together.
It doesn’t get much cuter as far as dating sports couples go, especially when you see their recent social media posts with their little one. It’s a move-worthy romance, and the world has collectively been doing a great deal of fawning. Plus, best of all, the two have promised that their daughter, Liv, will not be influenced into being a hockey fan for one country or the other. Chu jokingly said they only hope their little one will be a hockey fan, and support any team.
