Patrick Kane is one of the NHL's faces of the future. The 20-year-old won the Calder Trophy in 2008 and is coming off a season in which he helped the Blackhawks reach the Western Conference finals.
All of this has helped him to become the cover boy for Electronic Art's NHL 10
Kane is only the second American-born player to grace the cover and the first since Rangers goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck was featured on the NHL 97
"It's exciting to be on the cover of my favorite video game after playing just my second year as a professional," said Kane. "When you look back at some of the great players who have had this opportunity, it's an honor to be a part of the EA SPORTS family and contribute to a game I've been playing for more than 10 years."
