With NHL 06 players can score like a superstar, express themselves through their shooting style with the new EA SPORTS Skill Stick and light the lamp with highlight reel moves such as spinoramas, toe drags, bat-ins, and between-the-legs shots. Classic deke control adds to the arsenal of moves allowing maneuvers around defensemen before snapping off dangerous shots that can ripple the twine and knock the water bottle off the net.
“I am very excited about being a member of the EA SPORTS team,” Lecavalier said. “I grew up playing EA SPORTS games and to be a part of NHL 06 now is a great honor.”
Lecavalier, 25, already has become one of the most decorated young stars in the NHL. Following the 2003-04 NHL season, Lecavalier led the Lightning to the Stanley Cup Finals, where they prevailed in seven games. Just three months later he was named the Most Valuable Player as Team Canada won the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. He was the first overall selection in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
NHL 06 was developed by EA Canada in Vancouver, B.C., and will be available on the PlayStation2, Xbox, GameCube and PC this fall.
