Washington Capitols center Brooks Laich has a way with ice — just ask “Dancing With The Stars” judge Julianne Hough. The hockey player gave girlfriend, dancer/actress/singer Hough, a sparkling ring, according to Instagram evidence of the newly engaged couple.

“We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love,” Laich posted on Tuesday, along with a pic of the two in an adorable embrace.

The pair (it will be a first first marriage for both Hough 27, and Laich, 32) took their relationship public early last year. Hough once dated “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest.
