It looks like
Chicago Blackhawks forward and rising NHL super start Patrick Kane will be the cover athlete for NHL 2010
. It's not too surprising as he's been rumored to be the cover athlete since E3 but it's now semi-official. I was really impressed
with what I saw at E3 this year and while I think NHL 2K10
has the better cover athlete
in Alexander Ovechkin I think EA has the edge in the gameplay department.
