Alex Ovechkin-Shootout 2009 NHL All-Star Skills Competition

Dan London@danlondonCorrespondent IJanuary 25, 2009

The Shootout 2009 NHL All-Star Skills Competition featured Ovechkin putting on a show. He teamed up with his Russian friend and NHL enemy, Evegini Malkin to treat the Montreal crowd to a bit of showmanship and, to be honest, not much else. None of the moves actually worked out, but adding a hat, a flag and some Paris Hilton glasses, gave him the win.

The skills competition was a fun event to watch, even without some awesome moves. I’d rather see less of this non-sense and maybe add a few more relay events.

And why did the NHL use a Junior B goalie and not Brett Leonhardt who suited-up as a back-up back in December?
