Niederreiter Again Graces NHL Video Game Cover

by Evan Sporer / Minnesota Wild

For the second consecutive year, Nino Niederreiter is on the cover of a prominent hockey video game in his native country.

Niederreiter is featured on EA Sports' NHL 16 in Switzerland, months after the 23-year-old forward put in a historic season for a Swiss-born player.

In the 2014-15 season, Niederreiter became the first NHL player born in Switzerland to score 20 goals in a season (Niederreiter scored 24 a season ago). He was featured on the cover of NHL 15 in Switzerland, and this year, is sharing the honor with Nashville Predators defenseman and countryman Roman Josi. Niederreiter is the cover athlete for the Xbox One and PlayStation4 versions, while Josi is on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games.

In the United States, Jonathan Toews is the featured covered player.

Wild fans wishing to download the Niederreiter cover can do so here for Xbox One, and here for Playstation 4.
