EA Sports has announced that Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin is the new cover athlete for EA NHL 21.
This marks the second time Ovechkin has graced the cover for EA NHL as he was on the cover for EA NHL 07. Also with EA NHL 21 will be the “The Great Eight Edition”.
By pre-ordering EA SPORTS NHL 21 Great Eight Edition players will receive the following:
- Up to 10 HUT Diamond Player Choice Packs (2 per month for 5 months)
- HUT Synergy Veteran Choice Pack (Choice 1 of 10; +1 OVR per month until August 2021)
- HUT Cover Athlete Choice Pack (Choice of: Ovechkin, Matthews, McDavid, Pettersson, Laine, Subban)
- 3 Days Early Access
- Be A Pro XP Boost and Bonus Trait and Specialization Points
- 5 Unlocked World of Chel Hockey Bags
As a long time EA NHL gamer, this is exciting that they will have Ovechkin on the cover once again, and that they will be doing a special edition for him as well. Knowing me, I’ll be getting both copies of the game for the collection.
