Got this email from Reebok CCM yesterday:
I am e-mailing you on behalf of Reebok-CCM Hockey. On March 15th, CCM released Alexander Ovechkin’s custom U+ Crazy Light skate and stick into stores.
I can send you a half pair of the skates and/or stick for photography purposes and/or wear testing, but I would need the equipment back once you are done with it.
Details on the products can be found here: ccmhockey.com/en/ovie-gear/
Attached are hi-resolution pictures of the skates and stick.
The skate’s color and design, which made its debut during the Winter Classic, was created with direct input from Ovechkin himself. The skates include the logo that CCM Hockey designed for Ovechkin.
The U+ Crazy Light Stick is one of the lightest sticks on the market. For the first time, CCM is making the stick available with the “Crazy Ovie” curve. Alex is the only player in the league with such a dramatic curve and open face.
