Former 'Idol 5' finalist Kellie Pickler dating NHL player Jordin Tootoo

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/24/2007 

What is it about blonde female former American Idol finalists and professional athletes? 

First Carrie Underwood snagged herself an NFL quarterback, and now it appears Kellie Pickler has landed herself an NHL forward. 

The 20-year-old Idol 5 sixth-place finisher is dating 24-year-old Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo, Us magazine reported Wednesday.

"We've been seeing each other since January, but we kept it under wraps," Pickler told Us.

Tootoo, who is originally from Churchill, Manitoba in Canada and has Inuit Eskimo lineage, reportedly invited the Albemarle, NC-native to one of his games and the romance began to blossom from there.

"I am this country bumpkin and he's an Eskimo," Pickler told Us, adding she plans to visit his hometown this summer. "I'm going to build an igloo!"

Young athletes on the rise in their respective sports seem to be in the game plan for both Pickler and Underwood, who is romantically involved with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
