Upper Deck released their 2011-2012 NHL Series One hockey set on Tuesday, November 8.

The Washington Capitals might be struggling on the ice right now (down 6-1 at the Toronto Maple Leafs after two periods as I post this), but I was still excited to see my favorite team represented, via left wing Alexander Ovechkin, as the cover art for the packaging.

An added bonus, in purchasing only six packs of cards, was getting the regular issue Ovechkin card. It looks like it may have been taken at a practice before the Winter Classic in Pittsburgh and may strike fear into Washington Redskins quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck, who have also seen their share of tough games lately.
