Ever since the NHL returned from the lockout and failed to negotiate a contract with ESPN, the world wide leader in sports has shown the NHL the cold shoulder, literally. Now thanks to ESPN the magazine show E:60 viewers of the top sports channel got to see the life of Washington Capitals superstar and Russia’s favorite son Alexander Ovechkin.
The profile tells the story of his rise in the NHL as well as his off-ice rockstar persona, his cars, etc with interviews with his parents, coaches, Wayne Gretzky, along with various others who have been fortunate enough to play with him or against him. The segment runs a little under 12 minutes but rest assured this is probably the best thing to be shown on ESPN regarding hockey since 2003-2004.
The video is solely featured on E:60’s website.
