Contrary to the popular rumor that Tampa Bay Lighting center Steven Stamkos would grace the cover of EA Sportsâ€™ new NHL hockey video game, the company has now announced that the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews will be the gameâ€™s cover athlete. This will be the second year that a Blackhawk will appear on the gameâ€™s cover â€“ NHL 10 featured Patrick Kane. The Blackhawks captain told IGN:
"It's been an amazing year for me and the team, and it's nice to end it by being a part of a game I played growing up. The NHL games have always been great, so it's an honor for me to be a part of the EA Sports family."
Another interesting fact about this game is that it will be unrivaled in its release; 2K Sports will only be releasing NHL 2K11 for the Nintendo Wii. The game is slated to hit the shelves September 14th.
