That would be the second Blackhawk player in 2 years for EA (last year was Kane). There's been a curse to being the cover athlete for EA games in history. After Dany Heatley was on the cover he had his crash and EA pulled them off shelves and replaced it with Sakic. The last few years it seemed the players on the cover had poor seasons.

Such an awful decision! Change it up, EA! We've had the Blackhawks fed down our throats enough over the last 2 years.

Obviously it isn't that big of a deal haha, I'm still buying it.

I used to make my own covers anyways, print them out and insert them. Besides, the game will rarely leave my XBOX tray, so I won't see the cover lol.

But the point is that the love for the Hawks is ridiculous, but EA and the NHL need to sell to the USA market, so I guess this is their way of doing it. Same with Europe, the release separate covers for Sweden, etc.

I remember 2K used to release a Canadian and US cover too.

Doughty would have been a good pick, or Ryan Miller, or Myers or Duchene.

I guess we are the real winners when we get the CHL in the game.

I don't know, seems like he would have been a popular choice.

I would have thought it'd be the mural on the cover.
