Goodbye creepy head in a locker commercial, we hardly knew you. The same goes for you, bowling bag head. Your time on this earth has passed.

After dropping CCM earlier this summer, Alex Ovechkin will be sporting Bauer equipment for the foreseeable future. This isn’t the first Ovechkin sponsorship announcement we’ve heard recently. Last week Ovechkin signed a “long-term endorsement deal” with Nike which will see him wear the brand’s apparel while playing as well providing as other product support. Now we know that his sticks and skates will come from Bauer, a former Nike company.

This change has been rumoured for a while. What are the odds that Ovechkin made an announcement today because Crosby is planning on speaking tomorrow? We kid, we kid!

While the Bauer deal certainly isn’t earth-shattering by any means, the fact that Ovi and Bauer will donate 108 sets of equipment to the Kettler Capitals Iceplex and the Potomac Valley Amateur Hockey Association in Washington as well as 108 sets of equipment to the Dynamo Hockey School in Moscow, Russia is a nice touch.

This topic also gives us an excuse to post some other Ovechkin ads.

We’re not the best singers or dancers either, but Ovechkin should definitely stick to hockey.

At least they threw in a shot at the Penguins in this one.

We know that nine goals is a “triple hat trick,” but wouldn’t eight goals make more sense as the “Ovechtrick?”

Ha ha! He’s Russian and they called him a spy! How original and not at all racist!

Apparently in Russia, Ovechkin does ads for Reebok. There’s a Yakov Smirnoff joke in there somewhere.

Ovechkin is a personable star who loves to have fun and isn’t above looking silly in commercials. He’s exactly what company marketing departments love.
