Kris Humphries has been given a different kind of job offer. The 26-year-old power forward, previously married to Los Angeles socialite Kim Kardashian for 72 days, is being pursued by a minor league hockey team. Humphries, a Minnesota native, has been offered a position on the roster or in the front office of the American Hockey League's Syracuse Crunch, the top farm team of the NHL's Anaheim Ducks. "We would welcome Kris Humphries to Syracuse, where unlike Hollywood there are no paparazzi within hundreds of miles and he could reclaim his privacy and self-esteem," Syracuse Crunch general manager Vance Lederman said. "Being from Minnesota, Humphries will surely enjoy the hockey and feel right at home in the cold, gray, dismal weather we experience this time of year in Central New York." The Crunch sweetened the deal by providing access to the team's "state of the art" practice facility, as well as the use of a personal trainer as he looks to earn a spot with an NBA team. Humphries averaged nearly a double-double and over a blocked shot per game with the New Jersey Nets last year. Anaheim Ducks affiliates haven't had a good track record when it comes to such publicity stunts. The Iowa Chops, a prior affiliate with the Ducks, were let down when Brett Favre rejected their signing efforts so he could follow through on his commitment to the New York Jets in 2008.
