Rick Nash Signed as Cover Athlete for NHL 2K9
2K Sports has announced that Rick Nash, captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets, has been chosen as the cover athlete for the upcoming hockey game, NHL 2K9. Naturally, the three-time NHL All-Star is thrilled:
“I’ve been a longtime fan of the hockey games from 2K Sports. My idols have all been on the covers of video games as I was growing up, so to be on the cover of NHL 2K9 myself is truly incredible,” said Nash, who scored an impressive three goals in the 2008 NHL All-Star Game. “The set of new features they’re adding is really going to make this game special for hockey fans – I’m hoping they give me a couple extra points to my player rating this year!”
Developer for the game, Visual Concepts, is apparently building a whole new game from the ground up to provide a fun and addictive hockey experience. The game is set to be released in the fall for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PS2.
