As a kid, every year Auston Matthews wanted the new EA Sports NHL video game for Christmas.
This time around, the Toronto Maple Leafs forward will be on the cover.
On Wednesday at the NHL Awards presented by Bridgestone in Las Vegas, Matthews was announced as the cover athlete for EA Sports NHL '20.
"I love it," Matthews said. "I always knew the new game was going to be waiting under my Christmas tree and fast forward, now I'm on it... It's a huge honor for me to be on the cover of this year's game and I couldn't be more excited."
Matthews became the third American-born player to appear on the cover, and the first since Patrick Kane was featured in NHL '10. He became the first Maple Leafs player to be the primary cover athlete since William Nylander graced the cover of the Swedish editon of NHL19.
"There's so many different countries [represented]," Matthews said. "Obviously the NHL does a great job of growing the game. For myself it's just a huge honor. When you look at past covers, just to be in that same kind of position as these guys were. There's so many young players coming up. The League's evolving, and it's pretty awesome to be a part of that."
