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.
