NHL 2004 cover boy Dany Heatley crashed his Ferrari yesterday doing 80 MPH and now has a broken jaw. Oh, and his teammate, Dan Snyder, was launched from his seat and came down on his head, fracturing his skull. He is in critical condition. Go to ESPN for more details.

Stupid kids.

I believe I read somewhere that Joe Thornton was originally supposed to get the game cover, but it was changed somewhere in the games cycle to the guy who had the most prolific All Star game last season.

I just hope they never put Brodeur on the cover. That jinx in no joke. Mario Lemiux, Chris Pronger, and now Dany Heatly have have all freak injuries that have limited their playing time. Keep Devils OFF that cover!

That could be spin. I thought I read that the change was made shortly after Thorton's arrest in the bar brawl.

Stevens and Yzerman were on the cover of NHL '96. Of course we missed the playoffs that year.....

EA's baseball game had Randy Johnson as part of its cover art.

Saku Koivu was the cover "boy" for NHL 2003 in Finland. The jinx hit him a little late, though.
