With training camp and preseason matches on the horizon, the excitement for the 2021-22 NHL season continues to brew. Part of that excitement is because of new content such as promotional photos, videos, and interviews players participate in. The 2021 NHL Media Tour kicked off on Wednesday, and Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin took part in the two-day event in Chicago.
We were given a behind-the-scenes glimpse into some upcoming promo shots and interviews featuring The Great Eight in the new season.
Be on the lookout for a future ESPN podcast episode with Ovechkin as he sat down with Linda Cohn and Emily Kaplan.
He joined Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby too, and I don’t know about you, but I’m very interested in whatever interview this will be when released…
