Chicago Blackhawks player Patrick Kane will no longer appear on the box for NHL 16, nor will he participate in promotions for the game, according to a statement from Electronic Arts.
Catching up on some E3 news, last week EA Sports put up - then removed - a page depicting Chicago Blackhawk Jonathan Toews in a definite cover art pose. Operation Sports snagged that screengrab before it was taken down.
The puck just dropped in Chicago, with the Blackhawks seeking to ice a 4-0 sweep in the NHL's Western Conference finals. Chicago sports a formidable 7-1 playoff road record, partly because they keep it loose with Mario Kart Wii.
