The Prince George Cougars have announced a limited number of Taylor Gauthier NHL 21 covers have been created for PS4 and Xbox.

The covers will be available at the Candy Cruise event on Halloween night, Saturday, October 31st, at the CN Centre.

Covers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“Like most kids growing up I’ve always imagined myself on the cover. I remember playing this game since NHL 06 and to be named the Cougars’ cover athlete is a nice honour,” said Gauthier.

Cole Moberg was the Cougars’ cover athlete last season for NHL 20.

Gauthier, 19, had a career year during the 2019-20 season.

The Calgary, AB product was first in the WHL in minutes played (2870), tied for first in games played (50), second in shots (1677), and second in saves (1537).

He set career highs in wins (16), goals-against average (2.93), and save percentage (.917).

In addition, Gauthier was invited to Hockey Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp.

He also played for Canada at the 2019 World Under-18 Hockey Championship and won a gold medal at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup.
