The Russian Women’s Hockey League named Anastasia Legkodukh, a forward for Dmitrov’s Tornado Hockey Club, Russia’s most beautiful female hockey player.

Voting for the award took place on the Russian social network Vkontakte. Tatiana Shchukina, a goalkeeper for Dynamo St. Petersburg, came in second.

The prize for the winner is a photo shoot.

"I have so many emotions,” Legkodukh said. “I feel joy and gratitude to all those who helped me to win. Now I feel something like euphoria.”

The 21-year-old has played in two league matches so far this season.
