If you have been following my posts on this years NHL11 you know that the CHL has been included in this years game. Something about we are now allowed to mention is from this quote in the latest press release.
“You start as a player on a CHL team in the Memorial Cup,” Agostini said. “The better you do in the Memorial Cup, the higher you’ll get drafted by an NHL team and from there you go on to become a NHL legend.”
The licensing agreement between EA SPORTS and the CHL allows the following to be included in NHL 11:
- Ability to play with all 60 teams that make up the CHL
- Names and Likenesses of players that are on the rosters of a CHL team
- Mastercard Memorial Cup
- CHL new RBK Edge Jersey design in NHL 11
- WHL, OHL and QMJHL logos and league structures
Again I can’t go much deeper then that but just looking at it what it offers should be pretty exciting to fans of junior hockey. And as a little nicety to all of us that visited the studio they gave us some exclusive screen shots to debut today. So if you get this article early on Sunday you are seeing this pictures for the first time ever.
Also please check out some great write ups on the event from the other people who attended this commuinty event. They all did a fantastic job and I was really happy to get to meet them all. They truly brought a lot of fun to the event.
