• Toews Named Cover Athlete for NHL 16 [UPDATED]

    Following the legal investigation into Patrick Kane, EA SPORTS has dropped Kane from further involvement with the marketing and promotion of NHL 16, making Jonathan Toews the solo cover athlete for the title.

    This is not the first time the NHL franchise has had to replace an announced cover athlete. In NHL 2004, the original cover athlete was Joe Thornton until he was replaced following assault charges. He was then replaced by Dany Heatley until he was replaced following a car accident that killed teammate Dan Synder, shifting the cover to Joe Sakic.

      IMO the cover looks better with only one player. Plus, totally support EA on this one. You cannot have Kane on the cover or anyone for that matter with character issues.
