It's an absolute honour for anybody to get the cover of the EA Sports NHL cover and this year it's one of the Maple Leafs' own. 

Last year's cover boy, PK Subban, announced that this year Auston Matthews will be on the cover of NHL 20. 

The game comes out on September 13th and you can preorder the game as of now. 

Huge honour for the young kid from Arizona. 

Matthews was extremely excited about the announcement and said he grew up playing the game in Arizona.
