Jonathan Toews Named NHL 11 Cover Athlete

Jonathan Toews, Captain of the Chicago Blackhawks and member of Gold Medal-winning Team Canada, has been named the cover athlete for NHL 11.

The news comes via a press release from EA Sports, and no surprise here, but Jonathan Toews is excited to be on the cover.

“I am really excited to be on the cover of NHL 11,” said Toews. “It’s been an amazing year for me and the team, and it’s nice to end it by being 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.”

Toews will mark the second year in a row that  Blackhawk has graced the cover of EA Sports’ NHL game. NHL 10 featured Patrick Kane on the cover.

NHL 11 is scheduled to arrive this September. So keep your eyes peeled for more information as the release date nears.
