Laich, a 30-year-old player for the Washington Capitals, hugged and kissed Hough before he boarded his plane.
Hough, who broke up with Ryan Seacrest last March, recently told Self magazine that she wanted to live the single life for a while longer.
"I'm a relationship girl, and I feel so grateful for the one's I've been in. They've been excellent -- I've been hurt but never angry -- and they've helped me grow," she says in the magazine's March issue. "But my goal has been to be single for an entire year."
