Earlier today we brought you information about Dion Phaneuf being named the NHL 09 cover athlete along with the first NHL 09 screenshots. EA has just issued a Press Release that makes the announcement official. The release also includes some details on what will be new to the game this year:

"The revolutionary Skill Stick System evolves to bring an unparalleled level of control to the defensive side of the puck. The all new Defensive Skill Stick gives you the ability to sweep your stick to block passing lanes and lift an opponent’s stick to prevent one-timers. Take your game online with 6 vs.6 team play, where 12 people can play together on 12 different consoles around the world. With new teams from the Russian, Czech Republic and German Elite leagues, NHL 09 connects hockey fans around the globe like never before."

It is interesting to note that the game is still being developed for the PC, even though EA has recently given up on developing both Madden and NBA for the home computer. Check out the full Press Release for more information.
