Mark Wahlberg to present at NHL Awards


TORONTO – Hockey and Hollywood will come together at the upcoming National Hockey League awards show in Las Vegas, organizers said Friday.

The pro hockey league tapped Mark Wahlberg as a presenter and Florida rockers Shinedown, Snoop Dogg, Cirque du Soleil and Jersey Boys as performers on the 2010 NHL Awards on Versus and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. on June 23.

The telecast from the Palms Hotel, produced by David Broome, will make additional announcements on celebrity hosting and presenter duties in the coming weeks as the NHL continues to reach out away from the arena ice to its North American fan base (HR, April 19).

The NHL awards fest, held last year in Las Vegas for the first time, annually features league players and coaches competing for end-of-season honor.
