NHL 23 cover stars detailed

It's that time of year again!

NHL 23 cover stars were today detailed by EA and we’ve got all the information you on what to expect.

Like FIFA 23 before it, NHL 23 will offer up two cover stars: Sarah Nurse and Trevor Zegras.

Sarah Nurse of IIHF’s Team Canada will hold the honour of being the first female to grace the cover of EA’s NHL franchise. Nurse is a silver medal winner at the 2018 Winter Olympics and was the opening scorer in Canada’s 3-2 gold medal victory against Team USA in the 2022 Winter Olympics. She also plays for the Toronto Furies of the CWHL.

Nurse is joined — quite literally, on the cover of NHL 23‘s X-Factor Edition — by the Anaheim Ducks’ Trevor Zegras.

An American, Zegras is perhaps most famous for a lacrosse-style assist in December 2021 against the Buffalo Sabres. Zegras’ moves have inspired big gameplay changes within NHL 23, but we’ll get to that in another article. Last year, Zagras was a finalist for the Calder Memorial Trophy, an honour awarded to the NHL’s rookie of the year.

We’ll have more on NHL 23 after a reveal in the early hours of tomorrow morning. See you then!
