NEW YORK -- Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin and team owner Ted Leonsis are featured in the latest NHL ad set to make its television debut during tonight's game broadcast on VERSUS. The spot, which premiered on as part of Leonsis' 'Ted's Take' blog entry on December 21, 2006, will air later this week on TSN, the NHL Network and Comcast SportsNet and on NBC on January 13.

The "Just Like You And Me" promos depict NHL players going about their daily activities just like "you and me," with a caveat that they are also really good at hockey. The 30-second spots offer a humorous look at some of the League's brightest stars.

In the newest spot, Ovechkin struggles to free a bag of Lay's chips he has purchased from a vending machine. Leonsis joins Ovechkin in a sequence of amusing attempts to free the snack, including the use of a hockey stick.
