A picture is worth a thousand words and from the looks of this photo, Julianne Hough may have found a new man.

The Dancing With the Stars pro-turned-singer/actress was spotted Sunday with NHL player Brooks Laich. The pair was snapped holding hands and hiking in the Hollywood Hills with Hough’s dogs.

Stepping out for a very public post-Valentine’s Day stroll, Hough, 25, has moved on from former flame, Ari Sandel, her first serious public relationship since her split with Ryan Seacrest, whom she dated for nearly three years.

Laich, 30, is a center for the D.C.-based Washington Capitals. The Canada-native Tweeted two days before stepping out with Hough: “Happy Valentines Day everyone hope you are spending it with that special someone who makes you happy! #onelove.”

Hough also tweeted a Valentine’s message, but there’s no word yet on whether or not the two spent the holiday together.
