NHL Awards to Feature Presenters From Film and TV, As Well As NHL Legends
June 21, 2011 1 Comment
Though the NHL continues to suffer with their connection to the music world, presenters from other forms of media at the 2011 NHL Awards in Las Vegas are pretty stellar.
The lineup of presenters will be headlined by Golden Globe-winning Mad Men star (and St. Louis Blues fan) Jon Hamm, along with blockbuster film producer/part-time hockey player Jerry Bruckheimer, Hit Somebody director/Devils diehard/over-tweeter Kevin Smith, How I Met Your Mother star/Canucks supporter/secret Canadian pop-star Cobie Smulders, and somehow, and for some reason Donny Osmond when entertainers and hockey royalty combine on Wednesday night’s ceremony, which will be televised on CBC and VERSUS.
Also appearing and handing out hardware will be Academy Award-nominee Jason Reitman (Up in the Air/Canucks), illusionist Criss Angel (from whatever he still does) , actress Jennifer Beals (The Chicago Code), reality television things Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), and CBC host George Stroumboulopulos (The Hour). Hockey legends, including Ted Lindsay, Mark Messier, Craig Patrick, Jeremy Roenick and Luc Robitaille, will also present.
Musicians performing at the show are country music star (and Predators fan) Dierks Bentley, and already has been electro-sleaze purveyors Far East Movement. Jay Mohr will host the show for the second consecutive year.
