Every week, we'll get to know the Hockey Wives a little better in an exclusive series called Off The Ice. Today, we meet Paige Getzlaf, wife of Ryan Getzlaf. 

1) Describe the moment you knew your husband was the one for you OR the moment your husband knew that you were the one for him?

When we realized we didn't want to spend a day apart. 

2) What is something you can’t start your day without?


3) If you couldn’t be doing what you are doing, what would you be doing?

Nurse in labour and delivery.  

4) When you’re at home watching television, what are you watching?


5) On Saturdays, where can we find you?

At my kids' soccer games. 

6) When you do get a chance to yourself, what do you do?

Get a blow out.

7) What’s in your fridge right now and what’s your go-to recipe?

Grilled chicken, Greek salad and roasted potatoes.  

8) What’s your favourite part of the day?

Sunrise believe it or not (thank you, babies!)

9) What’s your ideal vacation spot?

Bahamas. It was the first vacation Ryan and I took together. 

10) One word to describe Canada?


11) How about success? What does that word mean to you?

Being happy. 

12) Are there any special causes that you support? And if so, why?

Cure Duchenne - Duchenne manily effects young boys and having two of my own, it really touched our hearts when we learned about this disease. 

13) What is the sweetest surprise your husband has ever given you?

Babies - because they were all surprises! 

14) What’s one thing that would surprise us about being a hockey wife?

We are so normal. 

15) How do you spend the holidays?

With a lot of family and friends at our house... the more the merrier. And Santa always pays a visit. 

16) What’s a must-have on your holiday table?


17) What’s the best present you’ve ever given?

I'm sure my husband would say the sexy boudoir shoot I did for him.

18) What’s the best present you’ve ever received?

Ryan surprised me on my birthday and had a sea plane pick us up at our houseboat in the Shuswap and he took me on a romantic ride around the area. I'm obsessed with sea planes... we don't see them much in California so it was pretty cute and special. 

19) Do you have any family traditions you’d like to share with the fans?

We always go to Ryan's hometown (Regina) once a summer to visit family and friends and see one of his brother's football games.
