Colorado’s Cale Makar will be on Cover of NHL 24 Video Game



Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar will be on the cover of EA Sports’ NHL 24 video game.

Makar represents a sore spot among Philadelphia Flyers’ fans. He was selected No. 4 overall in the 2017 NHL Draft, two spots after the Flyers selected Nolan Patrick.

“It’s so cool,” Makar told ESPN after EA Sports released its cover. “When they were considering me to be a part of this, it was just kind of like a ‘Wow’ moment. You grow up, you play all these games.”

Makar has become one of the league’s top defensemen and was a key player when Colorado now the 2022 Stanley Cup. Makar won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.

He had 17 goals and 49 assists (66 points) in 60 games last season.

The game is expected to be released in early October.

The Flyers have had two players on the cover — Eric Lindros in 1999 and Claude Giroux in 2013.
