Carlsbad, CA, Tuesday October 27, 2009
Now that the 2009-10 NHL regular season is underway and teams are battling it out on the ice, the Upper Deck Company is proud to unveil the fourth of its NHL Rookies-themed videos that the exclusive manufacturer of NHL trading cards captured during the inaugural Upper Deck NHL Rookie Debut Photo Shoot in Toronto in August.
This week’s vignette is entitled “Lace ‘Em Up” and shows three NHL newcomers trying their best to satisfy the demands of fictitious hockey coach “Ron Cherry” to properly lace up their skates. Watch as Logan Couture of the San Jose Sharks, PK Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and Eric Tangradi of the Pittsburgh Penguins try their best at lacing ‘em up.
