    Canadian Hockey League to be included in NHL 11

    My apologies if this has already been mentioned, I haven't been around here for a while.

    CBC is reporting EA will add the QMJHL, OHL and WHL teams to EA's NHL 11!

    Is that question involving a Big Ten hockey conference?

    I have to agree with you. What's the question?

    The answer is a resounding YES...

    ...the Bruins did, in fact, trade Joe Thornton.

    EA would be reluctant to add the NCAA with this lawsuit still pending. In the Canadian leagues the players can get a cut for being featured in the game. They can't do that with the NCAA teams or USHL teams if the players want to keep NCAA eligibility. So until this lawsuit gets resolved EA or any video game manufacturer won't touch college hockey.

    Possibly by NHL 2011, more likely NHL 2012.

    They could get a cut but they will not be getting one. The CHL sees this as a marketing tool.
    The players in the CHL are considered pros and while NHL players do receive royalties for the use of their name and likeness in the game, the junior players will not get paid for appearing in NHL 11.
