In this slideshow article, we look at other Winnipeg Jets players and find their celebrity counterparts
Recently, Murat Ates of the Athletic made a startling discovery. On top of his exemplary coverage of the Winnipeg Jets, Murat also dabbles in celebrity look-a-likes. Unbeknownst to many, he reunited long lost siblings – John Cusack and Neil Pionk.
What do they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Well, in an effort to co-mingle with real journalists, I found some look-a-likes of my own:
Axel Jonsson-Fjallby and Ethan Hawke
Look-a-like rating (out of 10): This is a strong 9.
Summary: I am very comfortable declaring that Axel Jonsson-Fjallby is a handsome fella, and that might be underselling it a bit. Ethan Hawke – equally handsome. So much so, he was donned the nickname “Handsome Hawke” in this incredible Jimmy Kimmel skit. The resemblance here is striking, and I can’t wait for their buddy-cop action film “Hockey Cop”.
Other Similarities: Both of these gentlemen are underrated. Jonsson-Fjallby has given the Jets 4th line some real legitimacy and has seen his role grow exponentially as the season has progressed. As for Hawke – two words: “Training Day”. Denzel Washington gets the accolades (rightfully) but Ethan was incredible in that film. He too thrives in supporting roles.
On Jonsson-Fjallby: He ranks in the Jets top 7 in Corsi, Fenwick, and Expected Goals for 2022, and his hockey ‘flow’ is second to none. It’s like Brandon Tanev and Thor had a love child.
