Here's hoping this new musical duo won't churn out another "Ice Ice Baby."

Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin is set to spit some rhymes with rap superstar Eminem in an upcoming recording.

The NHL is currently in talks with the artist's representatives about the project, which Ovechkin is very excited about.

"It would be such an honour for me, because I am a big fan of Eminem," Ovechkin told Russia's Life Sports website. "I always have his CDs in my car, and I would be very glad to meet him. By the way, Eminem's 8 Mile film is just great."

Early speculation is that the song will have an accompanying music video.

This won't be Ovechkin's first experience in a recording studio. The sniper had previously collaborated on a song with Russian rapper Zhigan.
