Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , on September 3, 2011 by prostocknation

A few weeks ago it was confirmed Alexander Ovechkin and CCM were cutting ties.  Much speculation began as to which brands Ovi would endorse next.  He is no longer wear Reebok apparel off the ice after signing a long-term deal with sporting goods giant Nike.

According to reports from the Washington Post (source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capitals-insider/post/alex-ovechkin-returns-to-washington-sports-bauer-gear-during-workout/2011/09/01/gIQAHH6owJ_blog.html) Ovechkin took to the ice in all Bauer equipment today.

Coincidentally, Bauer Hockey also released a teaser video the same day on Facebook featuring one of their Vapor skates with yellow laces, a signature of Ovechkin’s.  (http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150300276390480)

While nothing has been confirmed from Bauer Hockey or Alexander Ovechkin, it doesn’t seem like a matter of if anymore but a matter of when?

Even though Alex is still under contract with the Washington Capitals he is without a doubt the hottest free agent available this off-season.
