Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos for being awarded the privilege of gracing the cover of EA Sport’s NHL 2012. I myself am a New York Rangers fan but I can not ignore the fact that Stamkos has put up some impressive numbers in his first three years as a professional. The game itself has brand new features such as new dynamic goalie interaction and goalie fights and net battle. There is also an all-new gameplay presentation for the 2011 NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh and the new EA SPORTS Action Tracker that provides a shift-by-shift breakdown of stats and key moments leading up to your next shift. The game releases on September 13th and we can’t wait to get out hands on it.
