Alexander Ovechkin's NHL 09 Cover

H/t to Nate Ewell for passing along (via EA Sports) the cover of the Russian release of NHL 09:


I wish it rocked some Cyrillic, but it's still pretty sweet.

@ Anon: Some solid ones there. This Ovie one, however, is legit.

I wonder why they continually publish the road jerseys for PR use. Especially with a white background, the red would stand out so much more strongly.

Most of last seasons hockey cards used the white jerseys as well...odd.

Because the white ones look so much sharper.

Isn't there some sort of curse that goes with being on this box cover? Seriously, isn't there an urban legen that goes with it. Should we be afraid....

@ UCF: He survived it once (if "it" even exists).

I think that curse only applies to Madden, not all EA video games. Although Dany Heatley might disagree with me
