Subban took the stage at the ceremony to talk about the honor and expressed thoughts that him being on the cover represents the “growth in the game and embracing of different personalities.”

Subban has twice been named an All-Star and took home the Norris Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s top defense player, in 2013. In addition to being one of the league’s more talented (and controversial) players on the ice, he has shown immense talent away from it as well. During this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, Subban provided commentary during NBC’s broadcast coverage. Subban is certainly a person worth marketing to promote the NHL, and EA Sports is doing just that.
