"funnygunny" in the NHL 10 Custom Covers thread
of Operation Sports Forums
- The cover of EA NHL 12 will be revealed tomorrow night at the 2011 NHL Awards and
- Sid has NEVER been chosen to be the cover athlete (even though Ovi has!)!! The picture to the right is a "custom cover" that is quite unofficial since it's made by someone other than EA Sports.
Blackhawks players have graced the cover of the previous two games (Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane) and there has really never been a rhyme or reason to how the athlete is chosen, so your guess is as good as mine. My bet is on "Tim-MAY" ... elite Boston Bruins goaltender, Tim Thomas.
According to The Examiner, the last time a goalie was featured was back on NHL 97 when John Vanbiesbrouck made the cover.
So be sure to tune in to the 2011 NHL Awards tomorrow night at 7 PM (est) on VERSUS.
