Upper Deck Videos – NHL Rookie Trick Shots and Celebrations
Upper Deck spent lots of quality time with the top NHL rookies from the Class of 2009 during the first annual NHL Rookie Debut in Toronto last fall. In the video below, the best trick shots and celebrations these players could create were put on display in hopes of taking home an autographed Cleveland Cavaliers jersey of reigning NBA MVP LeBron James.
Join Jared Cowen, Logan Couture, and Mikael Backlund as they show off their unique celebrations following successful breakaway moves. John Tavares, Tyler Bozak, Victor Hedman, and Matt Duchene display their superior juggling skills. And Montreal Canadiens P.K. Subban teams with Couture and Eric Tangradi following their joint score. Also unusual celebratory skating routines followed successful shots on goal staged by James van Riemsdyk, Colin Wilson, and Bobby Sanguinetti.
Why a LeBron James jersey, you ask? As one of Upper Deck’s longtime spokesmen, each of the NHL rookies can only hope to reach his superstar status some day.
Most of these rookies appear in 2009-10 UD Be A Player which was just released this week. Also, don’t forget the always desired 2009-10 SP Authentic Hockey which will hit shelves in mid-June. All these and more are available at Canada Card World.
