"THE PRICE IS RIGHT" WELCOMES CURRENT AND FORMER

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE PLAYERS ALEX OVECHKIN, SIDNEY CROSBY AND JEREMY ROENICK, MONDAY, DEC. 20


Former National Hockey League player Jeremy Roenick joins THE PRICE IS RIGHT to present an NHL-themed showcase and give away tickets to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final, Monday, Dec. 20 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.  In addition, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will also help Roenick introduce a showcase that will include a trip to Pittsburgh to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins play against the Washington Capitals at the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field on New Year's Day; VIP passes to the NHL's New Year's Eve Party in Pittsburgh; field/ice-level access during the Capitals and Penguins team practices at Heinz Field on Friday, Dec. 31; and a new 2011 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid car.  The NHL-themed showcase includes prizes from Reebok, Bridgestone, Enterprise and Starwood Hotels.

Before retiring in 2009, Roenick spent his 18 seasons in the NHL playing for the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes, Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks.  He represented Team USA in numerous international tournaments and, in 2007, became the third American-born player to score 500 goals in his career.

Linked competitors since entering The League together at the start of the 2005-06 season, Crosby and Ovechkin have forged one of the most exciting rivalries in all of sports.  Crosby and Ovechkin will face-off in the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, the much-anticipated outdoor match-up between Penguins and the Capitals on New Year's Day.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the longest-running game show in television history, is hosted by Drew Carey.  Produced by FremantleMedia North America, THE PRICE IS RIGHT is broadcast weekdays on the CBS Television Network.
