Coyotes to give away Mike Smith bobblehead in honor of goalie goal
The Phoenix Coyotes will be handing out a Mike Smith bobblehead in a couple of weeks in honor of his goalie goal. It's complete with an excellent ad.
Goaltenders don't score often in the NHL -- it has only happened 11 times -- so when it does it is the responsibility of teams to properly recognize this achievement.
The Phoenix Coyotes are doing their duty. After goaltender Mike Smith scored a goal earlier this month -- a real, off his stick goal because he shot it goal -- the Coyotes are giving away a bobblehead to commemorate the score on Nov. 9 against the Caps. The first 10,000 fans will get their bobblehead.
(On a side note, is it just me or does Mike Bobblehead Smith look like Tom Brady?)
Now not only did they make this bobblehead of Smith but they made an excellent promitional ad to spread the word too because really, the bobblehead could be from any old save when Smith weren't wearing a mask. The ad is probably better than the bobblehead.
If that's not going to pack the arena for a game against the Capitals then I'm not sure what would.
