NHL 2002 cover boy announced

  Continuing their proud tradition of featuring the most popular athletes on their game covers, EA Sports has announced that "Super Mario" -Mario Lemieux- will appear on the cover of NHL 2002 for Playstation 2 and XBox. As owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Mario returned to the NHL as the center for his Pens and played a fantastic season with them. So to honor a returning legend, EA Sports has cast him as the cover boy for their PS2 September release of NHL 2002.

   I'm looking forward to being a part of NHL 2002. My kids love EA's games and I'm enjoying the experience," said Lemieux about his involvement with EA. "This is new and exciting for me -- the technology is amazing and EA has done a great job capturing the essence of hockey."

   "We are honored to work with an athlete as gifted as Mario," said Jeff Karp, vice president of EA Sports Marketing. "He brings tradition, tenacity, excitement and leadership to NHL 2002 and is a welcome addition to the ranks of other elite EA Sports cover athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods."

   Aside from the aforementioned, EA Sports has also featured high profile athletes such as, Jason Giambi (Triple Play Baseball), Eddie George (Madden NFL 2001) and Kevin Garnet (NBA Live 2001). Stay tuned for a review on this monstrous looking hockey title.
