Zoolander tribute makes Martin Hanzal officially so hot right now (Video)


For years, whenever Martin Hanzal of the Arizona Coyotes would do anything of note offensively, it would be universally celebrated with the same pop culture reference:

“Hansel, so hot right now.”

The line from “Zoolander,” about Owen Wilson’s torrid male model, has become synonymous with the Coyotes center. On Wednesday night, the meme was taken to the next level by some Coyotes fans who not only declared that Hanzal – who scored the team’s lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks – was “so hot right now,” but they also dressed the part:

Derek Zoolander, Mugatu and Hansel himself, celebrating Martin Hanzal. And yet no “blue steel” from any of them.

“Zoolander 2” opens this week. According to the Tomatometer, you’d enjoy watching Martin Hanzal more, and that was his first goal since Jan. 9.

Big s/t to the great Patrick M.
