VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – A nude photo of Ryan Kesler is making its way around the Internet and the Twittersphere.

The Vancouver Canucks forward has posed nude for an issue of ESPN The Magazine that will be released later this week. The picture shows (almost) all of Kesler in a Roman warrior-like pose.

This is the second time #17 has stripped down for a photo shoot after posing in his underwear for the Vancouver Sun last year.

The Body Issue of ESPN The Magazine will be released on October 7th.
