Add another neat honor for Patrick Kane: The Blackhawks' dynamo from South Buffalo is the cover boy for EA Sports NHL 10, which will be released in September for Playstation and XBox. Kane joins former Rangers goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck as the only American-born players featured on the premier hockey game on the market.
The Chicago Tribune's Icing blog has a good shot of the cover, complete with Kane's trademark mouthguard out of place as he skates up the ice. Neat.
Wish EA could get into the Wii market. I had NHL 2K9 this year for Wii and it was good but I'm told EA's hockey version blows it away.
