For its first-ever NHL hockey game for the Wii console, EA Sports has landed on -- who else? -- Wayne Gretzky for the cover athlete. Gretzky (a/k/a. the Great One) will also be a playable character in
the game, which will launch in the fall.
In addition, NHL Slapshot will also include a new hockey stick controller that allows players to shoot, pass and body check via body movements.
