Being on the duvet of any sports video game is some thing

After an awful lot suspense and anticipation on who the cover athlete would be, we will now in the end say that Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin might be gracing the quilt of NHL 21. This news to me comes as a bit shocking to me.

I recognise Alex Ovechkin become additionally on the duvet of NHL 07 that is why I could have by no means predicted him to be on it again for NHL 21. However, we all realize how excellent Ovechkin is and why EA Sports might choose a participant like him to represent their online game this yr.

Being on the duvet of any sports video game is some thing that athletes dream about whilst they're younger. Companies simply do now not pick all and sundry to represent them for that year, but rather someone who represents hockey as a whole in all elements of the sport. Earlier within the year, I notion that the quilt athlete might belong to a person of the likes of David Pastrnak, Nathan MacKinnon, or maybe Leon Draisaitl just because of the year they'd this beyond season. EA decided to head in a exceptional route and selected a veteran player whose legacy was cemented via lately triumphing a Stanley Cup.
