The Upper Deck Company has unveiled its second 2010-11 rookie-themed video from the NHLPA Rookie Showcase in September. This series features NHL rookies and prospects from the NHLPA Rookie Showcase taking part in fun skits. The new episode is entitled “Never Throw a Teammate Under the Bus”.
These videos help build interest for the upcoming NHL rookie card season. The annual favourite Upper Deck Series One will be launched in November 2010.
The new video shows four rookies “learning the value of not throwing a teammate – or even an opponent – under the proverbial bus during a media interview.” The skit features Jonathon Blum of the Nashville Predators and Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Pääjärvi of the Edmonton Oilers. The episode is featured at the Upper Deck youtube channel.
