Ovechkin And Varlamov Play Russian Spies In SportsCenter Commercial (Video)

by: JamieD On  Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Alex Ovechkin hasn’t been doing much scoring lately, but a lack of offensive production clearly hasn’t taken the spotlight off the Washington Capitals’ superstar forward.  Between the plethora of face-time he received during episode 2 of HBO’s 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic series, and his atomic wedgieing of a friend during a New Years Eve skate at Heinz Field, Ovechkin’s exposure,unlike his statistical output, appears to be as strong as ever.

The exposure continued this week when ESPN began airing this SportsCenter commercial, which features Ovechkin and Caps goaltender Semyon Varlamov working as Russian spies.  Perhaps they are looking for the secret to Canadian hockey supremacy in time for the Sochi Olympic Games in 2014.
