Ovechkin Set to Promote Video Game in New York

That cooking thing is off (if it was even on at any point), as far as we know, but Alex Ovechkin will be hitting up the Big Apple next week to promote NHL 2K10. If it's even half as entertaining as his Las Vegas appearance for 2k Sports, it's probably worth checking out.

Here's a release from the NHL:

NHL stars Chris Pronger of the Philadelphia Flyers, Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals will appear at the NHL Powered By Reebok store in New York City next week in anticipation of the upcoming NHL® season. Both events are open to the public and media.
On Tuesday, September 8, Pronger and Thomas will sit down with ESPN the Magazine's EJ Hradek for a Q&A session discussing the upcoming NHL season and their thoughts on playing in the 2010 Bridgestone/NHL Winter Classic® on New Year's Day at Fenway Park.
On Wednesday, September 9, Ovechkin will celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated hockey title, NHL 2K10, by offering fans an exclusive opportunity to be among a select group to pre-order the video game directly from the cover athlete. The Capitals star will personally ring up a limited number of fans who pre-order NHL 2K10 and play against a number of pre-determined contest winners in the Nintendo Wii version of the game.

Event details are after the jump.


WHO: Alex Ovechkin, Washington Capitals forward, NHL All-Star, winner of the Hart Memorial, Calder Memorial, Lester B. Pearson, Art Ross and Maurice "Rocket" Richard trophies and cover athlete for NHL 2K10

WHEN: 4pm - 6pm ET

WHAT: Ovechkin will personally ring up a limited number of lucky customers who are among the first to preorder NHL 2K10 as well as go head-to-head with the finalist in a pre-determined contest in the Nintendo Wii version of the game. To enter for your chance to take on Ovechkin in his own video game, visit the NHL Powered By Reebok store by 3pm ET on Friday, September 4. A tournament will be held on Friday, September 4, from 3-6pm ET in the store. The winner will be invited back on Wednesday, September 9, to take on Ovechkin in NHL 2K10.

Complete details for the other events are here.

Wow that sounds like fun! Too bad he'll probably be playing against a Rags fan. Kick their butt OV!

From previous-

Cheyenne - I love CenterIce. I live in Colorado and I can't miss any Caps games so for $1xx it's well worth it to me. I'm usually very mad on the couple of nights per year where VS has exclusive rights but they show a different game out here. You also are gonna want to get the "sports pack". It's only $5-$8 a month and you get the NHL network and all of the Fox's, NESN's etc of the world so you can watch pre and post game shows. Not to mention the few games that are on NHL network as well. Also in the mornings you can watch NHL Live which typically has EJ Hradek and Don Lagreca who I think are great and very insightful people into the hockey world. When 1 or both of these guys are there they have some phenominal people fill in like Bill Clement, Gary Thorne, Eddie O, Dave Reid, Larry Murphy (yes I said it) etc. So if your passion is hockey it's a must get IMO.
