A second day of Hockey Hotness brings us to the sexy Tyler Seguin! This Canadian professional hockey player plays for the Dallas Stars and has modeled for Under Armour (some of the shots from the campaign are among the five more photos after the jump!)
Professional Hockey player and US Olympics Silver Medalist Zach Parise is your Hunk of the Day! This 29-year old from Minneapolis played on the 2010 and 2014 US Olympic Hockey teams, earning a total of 5 Olympic goals and 4 assists.
Are Hockey Hunks your thing? Then you're in luck, as tomorrow's Hunk of the Day is guaranteed to be another Hockey Hunk too! Our friends over at Hockey Hunks were nice enough to send over four hockey player Hunk of the Day nominees which you can vote on today!
Photographer Pat Lee is to be thanked for many excellent photos of insanely fit fellows. And today's Hunk of the Day is no exception.
More of Cory's big guns and a full-body shot are after the jump!
Your Hunk of the Day? Kayne Lawton, in this shot from the 2009 Gods of Football calendar in Australia. Aussie rules football and rugby players pose nude in these calendars to raise money for the cancer charity, McGrath Foundation. The 2009 edition was produced by creative director and photographer of the project, Pedro Virgil.
Your Hunk of the Day is Campbell Brown -- a former Aussie Rules footballer and now AFL television commentator.
I wasn't very aware of Campbell until this morning, but his wikipedia page almost reads like a gossip column or the screenplay to an unfolding drama!
Penrith Panthers rugby player Josh Mansour is our Hunk of the Day. And let us appreciate for a moment the beauty in rugby uniforms/kit, shall we? If this whets your appetite, you'll really enjoy the additional photos just a click away!
Big thanks to Hunk du Jour reader Mike for uploading a bunch of nominees! Be like Mike, upload your nominees today.
Happy Hump Day, Hunk Lovers! Here's a hump day quickie for you, perennial fan favorite Jack Mackenroth in these exclusive pics just for your discerning eyes!
Jack gave us a little insight on the shoot:
[Kevin and I had] been talking about shooting for a while now but our schedules never seemed to synchronize. I've been a fan of Kevin's work for a long time. The shoot was initially for a Brazilian magazine called GLAD but something got lost in translation during their communication regarding art direction and they thought the photos were "too provocative" and they only ended up using one image. We put a lot of time and effort into the shoot so we sent them to you so they could see the light of day.

This Armani swimwear video caught my eye this morning on Facebook, where the lovely Jack Mackenroth posted it. Armani will be outfitting the Italian team in the 2012 London Olympics.
(BTW - Hunk du Jour is also on Facebook... go to our page and "Like" us!)
Check out this video from the 2011 CrossFit Games, as some killer competitors in amazing shape tackle an intense beach workout competion!
Nick Youngquest. /baskit/. Hotness.
I have an exclusive look at new photos from Jack Mackenroth, taken by the incomparable Rick Day! Says Rick, "It was a pleasure working with Jack. His beauty and professionalism made my job a hell of lot easier and quite enjoyable."
Jack was similarly impressed with Rick, saying "I love all of Rick's work, because he celebrates the male physique, without depending on tools like Photoshop, so the images always come out looking fresh and real, and the lighting is amazing."
By now you've seen the photos of Cristiano Ronaldo for Emporio Armani... This post may just be serving as an excuse to post him.
BUT! I do have a minor upgrade to the site that I'm sure will thrill and delight all of you... I've modified the Hunk of the Day nomination process so that we will no longer see multiple photos of the same guy on the same day.
AND! Last year we quietly implemented the return of commenting with a new system using Disqus. Please note you must confirm your e-mail address with Disqus (or use another method of logging in) for your comments to appear.
AND YET! I'm working on creating a blogroll system to spread more of the link-love mojo around to sites I love that don't link to us.
BECAUSE! I love you guys... Have a nice Thursday.
