Joffrey Lupul attended the 2012 NHL Awards in Vegas as a nominee for the Masterton Trophy. Cheryl Burke of "Dancing With The Stars" was also there as … well, eye candy.

The Toronto Maple Leafs winger was doing a little work for Yahoo! Sports when he met Burke on the red carpet. Commence flirtation!

Hey, wouldn't you know it: The NHL Awards may have made a love connection. US Weekly says the two are dating:

Burke and Lupul met at the 2012 NHL Awards in Las Vegas last month -- she was a presenter, and he was a finalist for an award. On Lupul's big night, the pair hit it off immediately -- and decided to exchange contact info, one source explains.

After doing some Twitter flirting, they arranged to meet up for a sexy dinner date at L.A.'s Mercato di Vetro July 12, where they were spotted holding hands across the table, an eyewitness reveals. Lupul even gave Burke a kiss when she stood up to head to the restroom.

Ah, the "here's something to remember me by as you use the restroom" smooch; fellas, take note.

Er, so, can she still be "The Bachelorette" or not?
