EA Sports NHL removes Patrick Kane from video game cover

Jonathan Toews EA NHL 16

EA Sports announced on Wednesday that Patrick Kane will no longer appear on the NHL 16 video game as initially planned, and it’s all due to the sexual assault investigation he is facing.

Here is the statement issued by the video game company:

Kane, who returned from injury to help lead the Blackhawks to their third Stanley Cup in six years, was set to appear on the cover along with teammate Jonathan Toews.

Now the cover will feature solely Toews.

Kane is being investigated for allegedly raping a woman at his home in Buffalo earlier this month. He has not yet been charged for any crimes, but EA Sports is trying to disassociate themselves with the Chicago star anyway.
