The 28-year-old goalie -- often called the world's sexiest hockey player -- popped the question over dinner in NYC on Dec. 21.

An unsuspecting Anderson arrived at a small restaurant, where her man surprised her with a huge diamond ring, Swedish paper Expressen reports. "White gold with a big rock on the middle and smaller diamonds around it."
