Even on the EA cover he looks like he needs to shoot more.

This now guarantees that either he'll have a bad season (less points,injuries) and/or the Flyers won't win the cup.

Not a Pens fan. I don't have favorite team in the NHL, except the ones where Teemu Selänne plays.

EA curse is alive in the hockey series, if not the players having a bad season, it's at least his team that won't succeed. Name the last EA hockey cover athlete to win the cup?

Also Toews and Stamkos had great years

It was either Kane or Toews, whoever it was when the Hawks won the Cup.

So uh, 2 years?

Thank you for rehashing a painful memory but....Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks, NHL 10.

Worth noting, I guess... No ‪#Flyers‬ on NHL All-Star First or Second Team, no rookies on NHL All-Rookie Team.
I just feel this is wrong.... just wrong.

Congrats G!

It will be awkward if he gets the C next year and makes that A on his chest obsolete.

Maybe now they can make the model actually look like him. The face looks like the same one they used on Gagne back in 2006, jeez.

No not the NHL cover:

Recent Covers
2010 Kane wins the Stanley Cup
2011 Towes sets new career high numbers
2012 Stamkos scores 60 goals and wins Rocket Richard

In the end its just a video game. Glad he won it but next year hopefully he's bringing home some additional hardware.

Here's a bigger version of the cover.



Congrats to Giroux and Flyers fans. He deserved a cover and got one.

lmao you guys sure do complain a lot

If the cover was a picture of Giroux scoring a goal on his ass I still wouldn't give a ****...as long as he's on the cover it doesn't really matter.

Anyways, it's nice to know that all those countless hours of voting and sleepless nights finally paid off

That would of been too good an idea for the awards show.

Congratulations to Giroux. But we're only halfway there. We have to band together more than ever to make this:



the next cover of Beer Pong 13.

Congrats to Roo.............

my gripes to EA Sports

1. face doesn't even look like him on the cover and.......
2. none of the action they show in the intro/trailer even remotely fits giroux in how he skates, or hits (that body check looked more like a pronger check )
some of it looks like jagr skating
the only thing they picked up on was the way his sweater was at the back.......
wow

#3. EA sucks for not releasing this game for PC

the game is already developed
it would take NOTHING to port it over to PC for them and get even more $$$ but, i guess they just don't care
havent bought this game since 08 or 09(can't remember the last one for pc) but would have if they released it for PC
oh well, saved a few bucks
haha

get with it EA
revamp that coverpage with a real liking image of roo and re-do your trailer with actual roo footage
