VANCOUVER — EA Sports is pulling Patrick Kane from the cover of its "NHL 16'' video game after police confirmed last week the Chicago Blackhawks star is the subject of an investigation. Kane was to be featured on the cover alongside teammate Jonathan Toews. EA Sports says that "in light of the ongoing investigation involving Patrick Kane, he will no longer be a spokesperson for the launch of EA Sports 'NHL 16.'" The company says Kane will not be on the cover of the game or attend any promotional events.
On Wednesday, the official Twitter feed for the game featured an image of Toews alone hoisting the Stanley Cup.
