Canadian-themed Lineup Features Four Superstars
Friday, February 09, 2007

McFarlane Toys is proud to present the initial images of our NHL 15 Sports Picks lineup. NHL 15 was created with our Canadian collectors in mind, featuring three players from Canadian teams and the Sports Picks debut of one of the best young Canadian players in recent memory.

DION PHANEUF: The 20-year-old defenseman made a huge impact in his rookie season, delivering 49 points to Calgary's attack while providing intimidating thunder to the Flames' blueline. This season, Phaneuf's 13 goals rank him fourth among all NHL defensemen.

ROBERTO LUONGO 2: Luongo faced more shots than any other goalie in the NHL last season, and 357 more than the next-closest goalie. After surviving a Superman-esque season in Florida, Luongo found his long-awaited exit and arrived in Vancouver as the goalie savior for a talented but disappointing Canucks squad. He's one of only three goalies to top 30 wins so far this season.

ERIC STAAL: Carolina's brilliant winger is the very definition of a Phenom: try scoring 100 points in the regular season and 28 more in the playoffs to lead your team to a Stanley Cup before you turn 21...

DARCY TUCKER: I know, I know. Darcy Tucker isn't going to win any league-wide popularity contests, but his 28 goals and 61 points were career highs for Toronto last season. Tucker's play evokes memories of Claude Lemieux -- a guy you either loved or hated, but who made an impact on the game every night.

NHL 15 is scheduled to arrive in stores in late June.
