When Tanner Kero scored a goal in his 100th career NHL game Tuesday night, the hockey world knew what was coming next.

We were going to see some thighs and quads after the game.

Professional sports teams every season come up with locker room traditions that serve as fun concepts that the players can rally around.

This year for the Dallas Stars...that tradition is all about the thighs...and it's all the rage right now in the NHL.

It all started on March 9th when the Stars’ winger Jamie Benn picked up his 700th NHL point against the Chicago Blackhawks, becoming only the fourth player in franchise history to reach that milestone.

Then, greatness happened.

Benn took a photo with his teammate Blake Comeau who was wearing nothing but a mask and underwear.

Comeau's quads quickly became the talk of Twitter.

A few days later on March 14th, Rhett Gardner got his first NHL point, So naturally, the Stars had to keep the thigh picture tradition going.

This trend has become so popular that other teams are demanding thigh pictures.

Cheers to new player milestones, and blinding white thigh pictures.
