EA has announced Anaheim Ducks Trevor Zegras and Canadian professional hockey and women’s national team member Sarah Nurse as the cover athletes for NHL 23. Nurse will be the first woman to grace the cover of the EA Sports NHL series.
“It is such a tremendous honor to be the first woman on the cover of the EA SPORTS NHL franchise,” said Sarah Nurse of Team Canada. “Hockey is really for everybody and I’m excited that NHL 23 is celebrating the diversity and inclusivity of the sport. I hope that the increased representation of women in such a prominent game will inspire young girls everywhere to know that there is a place for them in hockey.”
“As someone who has played EA SPORTS NHL since I was kid, it is a dream come true to be on the cover this year with Sarah,” said Trevor Zegras of the Anaheim Ducks. “I can’t wait to play this year’s version with my friends and teammates, and I am equally excited to see fans unleash my Michigan flip pass, which the team at EA SPORTS has managed to get into the game.”
We should get plenty more details tomorrow as EA plans to release their NHL 23 reveal trailer along with some other goodies.
