The sharp-as-a-tack folks at Radar Online have picked up a report from Swedish news outlet Expressen that claims San Jose Sharks defenseman Douglas Murray is romantically involved with the former wife of Tiger Woods — Elin Nordegren.

More, from Radar Online:

Elin and Doug were spotted together last week at Rose Nightclub in Stockholm where eyewitnesses said they were hugging and being affectionate with each other.

Before Doug, Elin’s first relationship since her very public split from Tiger Woods was with Jamie Dingman last fall but the couple broke up earlier this year. [see here]

The site also reports that Elin and Doug had dinner at the beginning of July with Swedish pro golfer Jesper Parnevik — who is also said to have played matchmaker for Elin and Tiger.

“We are only friends,” Doug told the Swedish paper when asked about his relationship with Elin. “We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.”

The 32-year-old Murray has spent his entire seven-year career in San Jose, appearing in over 400 games for the Sharks. He was born in Sweden but attended prep school in New York before playing four season at Cornell University.

Of Note: At Cornell, Murray and some buddies developed a patent for Uber Dispensing System, a hands-free three-sprout keg tap that reportedly extracts beer from a keg five times faster than normal taps.

So yeah, Douglas Murray is pretty awesome.

    Does it really matter what and who she is dating?

    I’d be more than happy to sleep with her! I’m sure she 10x better than anyone else’s significant other on this website

    Mike – Dude. Help us out here, we’re American sports fans. So when you say “Sharks”, we have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about. Throw in at least ONE word in your blog to give us a hint – Euro-Footie, Futbal, “Flopper”, nil-nil game, no scoring ever. You can even just go ahead and say “soccer” or “they take off their shirts off when the score”….anything to let us know what the fig you’re talking about.

    I just Googled and found them after 10 minutes of searching – 17,000 attendance? Dude, not even San Jose knows who the Sharks are.

    • coconutman1 - Jul 30, 2012 at 8:43 PM

      You’re on Pro Hockey Talk. They talk about pro hockey. Pretty simple.

    • sjshark714 - Jul 30, 2012 at 9:02 PM

      @pandebailey – I sincerely hope you’re trolling… otherwise you’re a f***ing moron… no wait… either way you’re a f***ing moron.

      • blackdonnelly - Jul 30, 2012 at 9:49 PM

        Hockey fans know who the San Jose Sharks are – pretty much all of the Bay Area know who they are. Hell – at least 1/4 of the world can identify the Sharks logo from
        Rohrschach inkblot tests. So – what’s your excuse – a thing for Tiger’s leftovers or got lost looking for the Justin Bieber blog? It’s not here – that’s for sure…….

    • bdawk20 - Jul 31, 2012 at 6:48 AM

      You do realize that the arena only holds 17,500 right?

    • cousingeoff - Jul 31, 2012 at 8:20 AM

      The NHL has the highest average attendance for indoor sports in the world…… more than the NBA.

    “So Elin, how about using some of Tiger’s money to send those kids to private school anywhere but here?”

    I’m jelous.

  12. mickboogy - Jul 30, 2012 at 9:42 PM

    Teach her how to dougie

  13. 950003cups - Jul 30, 2012 at 9:44 PM

    Who says defensemen can’t score big! I’ll bet it was 5-Hole

    • handsofsweed - Jul 31, 2012 at 12:09 AM

      Yeah. Top shelf would be kinda weird, I think.

      • florida727 - Jul 31, 2012 at 9:59 AM

        Kind of redefines the phrase “stick save” doesn’t it?

  14. 950003cups - Jul 30, 2012 at 10:31 PM

    Hey! Don’t diss The Bieb! He loves hockey like us.

  15. daviddmsvcp - Jul 30, 2012 at 10:36 PM

    Do you suppose he “scored”?

  16. barkar942 - Jul 30, 2012 at 11:07 PM

    Hey WOW! Not a single comment about soup cans in this article!

  17. noahbhs11 - Jul 30, 2012 at 11:10 PM

    How is this story news???

  18. blomfeld - Jul 30, 2012 at 11:35 PM


    Now there’s a change of tack if ever I saw one ! Little “sweet & innocent” Elin goes from back-to-back affairs with “billionaires” to dating some lowly “millionaire” NHL journeyman ? I suppose our worsening world economy is now having an adverse effect on “b-grade” gold-diggers too, eh ? I won’t even get started on the Tiger story, as I’d likely be here all night, though I will say that I’m glad he’s finally getting his game and life together again. Nonetheless, the fact remains that this parasite did pretty well for herself for 7 x years of “fake” marriage. Just the cash payout alone of $130 million divided by 7, equates to approximately $18.5 million per season, which literally “dwarfs” the annual salaries of even the NHL’s top earners including Crosby and Ovechkin ! … and that takes no account of the other additional assets which she was awarded, including real estate, stocks, bonds, sureties, etc. The kicker in all of this however, is that Elin Nordegren isn’t even that good looking ! She’s a “7” at best and so why she made such a fuss in the first place, is completely beyond me ? I lived in Sweden thirty years ago and so I can assure you that someone like Nordegren couldn’t “turn a head” if her life depended on it ! … I recall even bus drivers who were better looking and sexier than her !

    ps: as soon as I saw Parnevik’s name appear here, that was all I needed to know ..

      People with money tend to date people with money. Big shock! Just like actors and actresses often date. What’s she supposed to do, date a UPS delivery driver? A GM of Best Buy? Give me a break. Those would be the gold diggers. Want to assure people don’t want to just use you for your fame, power, money, or looks? Date someone on a similar level. If you make $200K per year and are good looking, date an attractive lawyer or doctor. Ever notice when you see a 30+ year old couple out an about that they are roughly the same? If one is good looking they both probably are. If one dresses well, they both probably do. If one is a lard ass wearing sweatpants in line at McDonalds, they both probably are. That’s the way it works.

      And a 7?!? Not a head turner?!? Please! You would give your left nut to be romantically involved with someone like her, and that still wouldn’t be enough. Oh, but I’m sure you’re such a head turner. Here is a tip. Yes, everyone is stopping to look at you twice… To laugh!

    She’s super hot but she’s got baggage. And by baggage I mean a half-billion freaking dollars!

    Nice work!

  20. joewilliesshnoz - Jul 30, 2012 at 11:55 PM

    A pretty hot broad with a ton of cash, nice work kid !

  21. schmitty2 - Jul 30, 2012 at 11:55 PM

    She discovered Hockey sticks are longer than golf clubs…if you catch my drift

  22. pantherpro - Jul 31, 2012 at 12:20 AM

    Murray is a stud and Tiger is boring as hell! As far as the moron who didnt know who the Sharks are? Youre a big tool and get our of your moms basement you big dork! Go Sharks! Cant wait to raise the cup in Tigers face next year! I just wish she found out earlier that you are a big a hole!

    • comeonnowguys - Jul 31, 2012 at 9:55 AM

      I agree that that guy’s a schmuck, but one anonymous commenter on an Internet site telling another anonymous commenter on an Internet site to “get out of your mom’s basement” is classic Pot vs. Kettle. Embrace it. :)

  23. peteycroubs - Jul 31, 2012 at 9:08 AM

    Did he ask Tiger what par was for this hole?

  24. cweez2 - Jul 31, 2012 at 9:40 AM

    Word of advice: don’t take her to Perkins for breakfast. Hell, anytime.

  25. bucrightoff - Jul 31, 2012 at 10:06 AM

    The next guy she dates who doesn’t make at least $1 million a year will be the first.

    I would joke about San Jose Sharks fans. They love their team, have some of the highest attendance in the NHL and love their “territory”. It is a different world in that part of the Bay Area
