On Sunday, Sparky visited Nintendo World in New York City, for t Nintendo and 2K Sports’ release of their brand new video game, NHL 2K9, for the Nintendo Wii. Sparky was one of the first ones to try it out.  The event was fun for all as the latest release takes the game of hockey to a whole new level of excitement. The game play was very smooth and playing the game on Wii really gave Sparky a work out as he simulated real hockey motions. After his first try at the game, one of Sparky’s friends, NJ Devil, stopped by and challenged him to a game. With each mascot playing as their respective team, Sparky led the Islanders to a victory over the Devils, foreshadowing what fans hope the regular season will be like as well.
