Tiger Woods’ ex-wife has come out of jersey chasing retirement, this time trading the green for ice. Elin Nordegren is linked to San Jose Shark defenseman Douglas Murray, who like Nordegren is a fellow Swede. According to the Swedish gossip site Expressen, the couple got cozy at Rose Nightclub in Stockholm last week. Earlier this month, Nordegren and Murray dinned with mutual friends.
The friend playing matchmaker just so happens to be Jesper Parnevik, the man who set up Nordegren and Woods. Nordegren and her twin sister nannied for Parnevik in 2000, introducing Elin to Woods a year later.
Despite the rumored romance Murray is denying any relationship. “We are only friends,” Murray told Expressen. “We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.”
Perviously, Nordegren dated investment banker, Jamie Dingman and even planned to marry him.
