Wayne Gretzky Cover Athlete For EA's NHL Slapshot Wii Game

NHL Slapshot Wii Game

EA today announced a new hockey game for the Wii. NHL Slapshot will feature the great Wayne Gretzky on its cover and as a playable character and will come with a hockey stick controller.

The hockey stick controller will allows players to "shoot, pass and body check just like the pros," according to the press release...so basically a piece of plastic you snap your Wiimote into.

“EA Sports has been making great hockey games in Canada for 20 years now, and the team behind the game is really passionate about the sport,” said Gretzky. “Being on the cover of the new Wii version of the game is exciting and is probably going to make me a bit cooler in the eyes of my kids.”

The game will be out in September for the Wii only.

I'm personally bummed that NHL Slapshot isn't a movie tie-in game based on the 1977 Paul Newman vehicle Slap Shot. I'd wait in line to purchase a video game where I could be one of the infamous Hanson Brothers. (Extra Points if you get the reference.)
