The guard for the Toronto Raptors and NFL receivers for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings are now available as game players in EA Sports NHL 20.
Lowry, Thielen and Smith-Schuster are the first non-NHL athletes to appear in the video-game franchise. Each player collaborated with EA Sports for custom in-game apparel, including hoodies, jerseys and skates, that will be on sale at adidas.com.
Thielen, ("T-Bone" for Bar Down Lounge,) Lowry (K-Low for Syrup Shack) and Smith-Schuster (Smith-Scoopster for Scooper Stars) collaborated with EA Sports to develop the in-game apparel, then each shared his excitement for the development.
