EA Sports announced NHL 20 at the NHL Awards tonight in Las Vegas and Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews has been selected as the cover athlete.
“Growing up I always admired all the players who got to be on the cover of the game. This is a very cool honor and I am proud to represent my organization,” said Matthews. “I’m also really competitive, so now I can’t wait to fire up NHL 20 in the locker room and play against my teammates.”
NHL 20 will officially release to the public on September 13, but pre-orders are available beginning today for XBox One and PS4.
