More On: NHL 20

At the NHL awards last week EA sports revealed that Toronto Maples Leafs forward (and American) Auston Matthews would be the athlete featured on the cover of NHL 20. It was just a matter of time before the former first rounder appeared on the cover of the game as he's one of the leagues brightest stars.  

As for new features in this years game, fans can look forward to more signature shots from big name players, a new battle royale mode called "Eliminator", and a host of other tweaks and upgrades. It also looks like EA will be including some new celebrations as seen in the first gameplay video below. I will say that it is nice to see the Carolina "Bunch of Jerks" celebrations making it into the game.
