Hockey Idol?

SO, Detroit won (I was so worried they were going to drop another game to another below 500 team). On the Wings will probably have a good recap up of it - I was lazy tonight, sorry! I will share that my favorite part of the evening was the announcers informing us, on the topic of Hasek's return, that "Not since the Rockettes has so much attention been paid to a thigh in Detroit."

And now, to take away from the pain that is the Oilers game, I bring you hockey...er...karaoke?

So the other day (and by other day I mean like weeks ago) I was watching I think a Pens/Caps game that happened to involve Ovechkin mic'd up...singing Foo Fighters songs really badly. And I remembered a couple other occurrences of hockey players thinking they could sing and have compiled them here for your entertainment:

Candidate 1: Dany Heatley singing Mr. Brightside:



Candidate 2: Jed Ortmeyer singing Youth of the Nation:



Candidate 3: Alexander Ovechkin singing...oh god I don't even know, it's unintelligible. It's a Foo Fighters song, that's the best I can do:



So there you have it folks, cast your votes - if you can possibly pick a winner from this bunch. I'm not sure, we might have to go back to the drawing board...

I vote for Ovechkin, just for that preternatural screech he uttered at the beginning. Also, he gets a vote for hiding behind the net while Semin shoots pucks at it, that was priceless.

My vote goes to Heatley. What Ovechkin did doesn't count as singing :P

Awesome post, this is hilarious.

Of course, I'm torn between voting for Ovechkin (the Russian) and Ortmeyer (the Ranger), so I'm flipping a coin and going with Ortmeyer.

Sherry: Good point.

Oh, I think it counts - Ovie all the way, if only because of the passion he brings to every unintelligible note.

Great post - hockey players + singing = hilarious every single time, I love it!

I gotta go with Heatley, mainly because he doesn't even know the words. That's a true NHL Idol. :o)
