Thanks go out to Johnny Testa at AskMen.com, the world’s largest men’s web portal, who let us know they recently published an article entitled “Breakaway Tips From Alexander Ovechkin“. In the article, AO talkes about penalty shots, breakaways and the all-star game. Here’s a excerpt:
If you could put together your own NHL All-Star lineup, who would you choose?
In goal would be Martin Brodeur from the New Jersey Devils. My defensemen would be Andrei Markov from the Montreal Canadiens and Zdeno Chara from the Boston Bruins. And my forwards would be my teammate Niklas Backstrom from the Washington Capitals and Sidney Crosby from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
What trick do you have up your sleeve for this weekend’s Breakaway Challenge?
I’m going to try my old trick from last year again, where I bounce the puck in the air, do a spin-o-rama and then hit the puck mid-air. And I definitely have something new that I am going to try.
Do you think you can share your new trick with me?
No I can’t tell you. I’m going to save it for the Breakaway Challenge, everyone will see it then!
