Oakley Hockey Visor In The 2010 NHL Play-Offs
Oakley’s Hockey Visor has been center stage in numerous NHL play-off games over the past ten years, and most recently in the Vancouver Winter Games with over sixty players wearing the HDO patented visor. In this year’s NHL play-offs there are 50 players, spread over all 16 teams, wearing the Oakley Hockey Visor in clear, yellow and grey tints. Last year the two best players in the NHL squared off in the one of the greatest play-off games ever, where both Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby scored hat tricks (three goals in one game), producing insane coverage of the ellipse logo on NBC. Look for more of the same great play, results and coverage for brand in this year’s clash of the best hockey players on the planet.
The following are three key players wearing the Oakley Hockey Visor in this year’s NHL Play-Offs, each is the stand out player on their respective teams. Look for these faces to be all over your television on ESPN’s “SportsCenter”, and live game coverage on NBC and Versus HD.
SIDNEY CROSBY – “SID THE KID”: Although he has only been in the league for three full seasons, Sid The Kid has been playing like a veteran, from winning the Stanley Cup last year, to scoring the game winning Gold Medal goal against the USA in OT at the 2010 Winter Games, to winning the NHL goal scoring record this year.
Look for Crosby to build upon his championship season of last year and to captain his Pittsburgh Penguin teammates to another march for the Lord Stanley’s Cup come late May. It’s sure to be exciting as Sidney’s goal scoring ways will bring many highlights through his HDO Hockey Visor.
DREW DOUGHTY: Currently plays for the Los Angeles Kings, who square off against the feisty Vancouver Canucks in the Quarterfinals. He was selected second overall by the Kings in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, following a standout junior career, where he was twice voted the league’s top offensive defenseman. He made his NHL debut in 2008 as an 18-year-old and was named to the All-Rookie Team. He has represented Canada five times internationally, and was the youngest player on the gold medal team at the Vancouver Winter Games.
Look for Doughty to play a very powerful role in the Kings defense as well as being one of their top potential goal scorers throughout the Play-Offs.
ALEX OVECHKIN – “ALEXANDER THE GREAT”: Captain of the 2010 best regular season team, the Washington Capitals, “Alex the Great” is a superior Russian athlete, who picked up a hockey stick for the first time at the age of two and has never let go. Considered by most to be the best player in the NHL today, Ovechkin combines an incredible knack in scoring almost at will, but also holds down his place on the ice with an extremely physical approach.
Look for the highest paid player in the league at nearly ten million a year, to be the driving force behind the highest scoring team in the NHL. The Capitals will look to go a step further and beat their arch-rival Penguins this year in the Conference Finals.
