History was definitely made at the NHL All-Star game on Sunday. But not exactly like you may think. Oakley’s young smasher Matt Duchene took the first-ever penalty shot in NHL All-Star history…after fellow O star Alex Ovechkin chucked a hockey stick to stop his breakaway, that is. Ovi and Matt were just two of more than 30 NHL All-Star players proudly rockin’ Oakley Hockey Visors (out of a total of 48) – displaying the Big O’s enormous presence in the league and the trust star pros have in our cutting-edge technology.
Heating Up: Oakley’s Sidney Crosby Smashing Through Epic Season, to Star on HBO Show with Alex Ovechkin
The ice is about to catch fire. Big time. Oakley NHL Stars Sidney Crosby of the Penguins and Alexander Ovechkin of the Capitals generally don’t get along very well. Well the two ice chargers’ well-publicized rivalry is set to blaze to new heights, as the two are being highlighted in HBO’s special series, “24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic” from Dec. 15 until New Years Day – when their two bitter rival squads collide. It’ll definitely be a war. And the buildup is making it that much more intense as both have continued to steal headlines…and TV screens.
The Oakley 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.
