EA Sports - it's in the NHL All-Star Skills!
St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington, who will be making his first NHL All-Star appearance this weekend, will be wearing his EA Sports' NHL 20 Team of the Year mask during the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Skills presented by New Amsterdam Vodka on Friday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. CT (NBCSN).
Binnington received the mask on Jan. 10 after being selected to the video game's Team of the Year, which also included Washington's Alex Ovechkin, Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov, Edmonton's Connor McDavid, San Jose's Brent Burns and Washington's John Carlson. The distinction celebrates the most outstanding performances for the past year in hockey.
Binnington received the honor for his dominant performance since making his debut on Jan 7 in Philadelphia. Binnington went 24-5-1 in the regular season and became the only rookie goaltender in NHL history to win 16 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs en route to the Stanley Cup.
