More On: NHL 19

Look PK Subban is my favorite non Blue Jacket player in the league.  Not only is he one of the best defensemen in the league but he has done a ton of charity work in Montreal and Nashville and he's one of the few players in the league that always looks like he's having fun on the ice.  That's why I'm super happy that he's going to be the cover athlete for NHL 19 this year.

Along with the cover announcement EA revealed the first footage from the game.  The footage is heavy on outdoor rinks which is new this year.  For a league that romanticizes pond hockey it's a bit surprising that this is the first time they've featured it in their launch footage.  

The game will be available September 14th for the PS4 and Xbox One.
