Fans Will Decide Winner Of ASG Breakaway Challenge

NEW YORK (Jan. 16, 2009) – When Alex Ovechkin attempts to defend his title in the Scotiabank NHL Fan Fav Breakaway Challenge on Saturday night, Jan. 24, in Montreal’s Bell Centre, he’ll have to do more than just out-perform challengers such as Sidney Crosby. The competitors must win over fans in arena and those watching the 2009 Honda/NHL SuperSkills at home on RDS, CBC and VERSUS – and their fellow NHL All-Stars.

        For the first time in NHL All-Star Game and NHL SuperSkills history, fans will choose the winner of one of the competitions via text messaging powered by NHL partner Telescope, Inc.

        Voting will begin as soon as the last Breakaway Challenge competitor completes his routine, with fans in the Bell Centre, those watching on television throughout North America and all of the 2009 NHL All-Stars and YoungStars able to cast one text message vote per mobile phone.

        The polls will remain open throughout the NHL YoungStars Game presented by Upper Deck. Following that high-energy, three-on-three contest between the League’s top rookies and sophomores, the fan-selected champion of the Scotiabank NHL Fan Fav Breakaway Challenge will be crowned.


The SENShobo broke down the challengers earlier today.
