MONTREAL - The Bell Centre will look a little more authentic when Habs fans power on their video game consoles this fall.
EA Sports announced this week that Youppi! will be among the mascots included in the studio’s upcoming NHL 16 release.
Youppi! joins Winnipeg’s Mick E. Moose, L.A.’s Bailey, and Columbus’ Stinger as the mascots revealed so far.
With playoff beards already set to debut in this year’s edition of the popular NHL series, what remains to be seen now is whether Youppi! will sprout a digital version of his traditional Movember ‘stache come November.
