Swedish NHL player Douglas Murray says reports he is dating Elin Nordegren are a load of lox

From marrying Tiger, to dating a Shark?

Swedish model Elin Nordegren, the former Mrs. Tiger Woods, is reportedly dating Swedish NHL hockey player Douglas Murray, who plays for the San Jose Sharks.

A Swedish newspaper reported the couple were spotted at the Stockholm hot spot Rose Nightclub.

Eyewitnesses said they were "hugging and being affectionate with each other," according to the report.

Wow, get a room!

Nordegren and Murray, both 32, also went out to dinner with Swedish pro golfer Jesper Parnevik, who is the guy who set her up with Woods back in the day. (And we all know how that turned out.)

But Murray, for one, says the report is a load of lox*!

“We are only friends. We are not dating and we have never dated," he told the paper. "We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.”

Nordegren is back on the market again after splitting from businessman Jamie Dingman in May.
