TORONTO (AP) Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews will be on the cover of the EA Sports video game "NHL 20."
The 21-year-old forward was named as the featured player Wednesday night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.
Says Matthews: "If you look at the long list of guys who have been on the cover, it's pretty special company."
This year's game introduces a "Signature Shots" feature replicating the most recognizable shot styles of some NHL stars. Matthews calls it a "pretty cool feature."
"NHL 20" is available Sept. 13 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
