CANUCKS FORWARD KESLER TO APPEAR ON COVER OF NHL 2K11


Ryan Kesler (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=ryan+kesler) has been on quite a roll of late.

At the recent Olympics, he scored in the men's hockey final and emerged with a silver medal as part of an impressive young U.S. team. Since returning to the Vancouver Canucks, he has three goals in four games -- with two of those goals coming in Detroit near where he grew up in Livonia.

And now the 25-year-old can celebrate being the cover athlete for the NHL 2K11 video game, following in the footsteps of Alexander Ovechkin (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=alexander+ovechkin), Rick Nash (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=rick+nash), Jason Spezza (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=jason+spezza), Joe Thornton (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=joe+thornton), Marty Turco (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=marty+turco), Martin St. Louis (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=martin+st.+louis), Jeremy Roenick (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=jeremy+roenick), Chris Drury (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=chris+drury) and Brendan Shanahan (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/?name=brendan+shanahan).

Kesler calls it the "icing on the cake" after his Olympic experience.

The only system that 2K10 really sold on. Not a bad move in my opinion.

Only problem with this is all the Nucks fans are going to have to buy Wii's so they can buy this game :razz:

Don't worry, I am sure a Canadien will get on the cover of a game, it is only a matter of time. After all, they do have Patrick Roy Carey Price.

I don't know if i like this decision. After Naslund was on the cover of NHL 05 he just wasn't the same player.

thats Naslund, this is Kesler. i mean Naslund was a great player specially when he played with the WCE. kesler is of a different caliber than Naslund. kesler has grit and very good in defense. naslund, for me was just pure offence (which kesler can do too).

but im not going to buy this game :exclamation:
