While the investigation into rape allegations concerning Patrick Kane continues, EA Sports decided to remove Kane from the NHL 16 cover and any promotions.
EA Sports gave a statement via Twitter:
“In light of the ongoing investigation involving Patrick Kane, he will no longer be a spokesperson for the launch of EA SPORTS NHL 16. He will not appear on the EA SPORTS NHL 16 cover nor participate in other EA SPORTS NHL 16 promotional activities.”
The cover now features only Jonathan Toews, when it used to have both players.
For reference, Kane was accused of sexually assaulting a women from a Buffalo nightclub while at Kane's home around 4 AM. No charges have been filed yet, though.
