Beating out Canadiens' P.K. Subban

[Update: EA Sports has sent along the cover art, which can be seen below.]

At tonight's 2014 NHL Awards in Las Vegas, the winner of the NHL 15 cover was revealed. The athletes went through a fan voting process, beginning with eight, and being whittled down until only Montreal Canadiens' defenseman P.K. Subban and Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron were left.

After bringing both of the players out, the game's new commentators revealed that Bergeron had edged Subban in as the fan favorite. Official box art isn't available yet, but it probably won't take EA Sports too long to get on the ball...err, puck.

Slapshots from the point, cheeky tip-ins, and wristers through traffic are all perfectly fine, but when you play an NHL game, you want to embarrass your opponent. You want them going to get their jock out of the rafters...
About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.
Who doesn't want more control in their videogames? EA Sports explains that in NHL 15, players have been rebuilt from the ground up to give players unprecedented control. That includes the ability to choose your own goal celebrations. I'm sure everyone will respectfully skate back to the bench so as to not show up their opponent.
In its E3 press conference today, Electronic Arts released a new trailer for its upcoming hockey game, NHL 15. During the presentation, EA boasted that it would calculate "physics for all twelve players and the puck." The trailer above shows off those physics, with some bone-crunching hits and pretty fantastic shots on goal. NHL 15 is set to release on September 9, 2014.
