Winnipegs Jonathan Toews will grace the cover of the EA Sports NHL 11 video game, EA Sports announced Monday.

The Chicago Blackhawks captain, who won the Olympic gold medal, the Stanley Cup and the Conn Smythe Award (as top playoff performer) the past season, follows in the footsteps of teammate Patrick Kane.

Its been an amazing year for me and the team, and its nice to end it by being a part of a game I played growing up, Toews, 22, said in a release. The NHL games have always been great, so its an honour for me to be a part of the EA Sports family.

EA Sports is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its popular NHL franchise.

Jonathan Toews is one of the best centres in the NHL today, Jordan Edelstein, vice-president of marketing for EA Sports, said in a release. He is a great ambassador for the sport of hockey and his impact on the sport this year is undeniable.
