With the summer heating up, athletes are stripping down for ESPN’s 6th annual Body Issue.
Joining the long list of pros who have bared it all in the pages of ESPN magazine is NHL player Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars.
The 23-year-old Canadian athlete is checking off one item on his life list of to-dos by getting naked for the publication. “[It’s] a major thing,” he tells ETonline.
Posing with a strategically placed rubber ducky, Seguin is showing off his lean physique and all of his ink, which is normally covered up on the ice rink. “My tattoos are definitely an expression of who I am,” Seguin says, revealing that getting naked wasn’t that big of deal for him.
Though he did have one tip for preparing for the shoot.
“Moisturize,” Seguin says, adding that you just have to “breathe, relax, and trust” the people taking your photo.
The hockey player is joined by basketball stars, Brittney Griner and Kevin Love, and baseball player Bryce Harper, who appears on the cover.
The issue, which is now online, will be available on newsstands on Friday, July 10. Check out behind the scenes photos of Seguin’s shoot below:
