First NHL 15 screen isn’t of an Avalanche player like it should be

Guess where my allegiances lie

EA Sports has released the first screenshot for NHL 15, and it features San Jose captain Joe Thornton rocking an unimpressive beard, because they’re the Sharks and their long list of playoff flameouts disappoint in both the championship rings and beard departments.

Now, this screen could be helped immeasurably if it were of, oh I don’t know, electric Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon. Of course, his presence would beg for a more action-oriented still, rather than just meanly staring at the faceoff circle. But, EA’s been working on the NHL series for a while now; I imagine it could be pulled off.
