In what could be the biggest fail in video game history, EA Sports gives newest Ranger Jeff Halpern #11 in NHL13 which was released yesterday…
Reader Adam R. notes that this faux pas is only on the main screen as Halpern’s number changes to 12 in game play.
Although this pic from d.fresh says differently…
Halpern wore #15 for the Capitals last season, but did wear #11 with the Lightning and during his first stint in Washington in the early 2000s.
…wow, just wow. Hurry up, someone check the rest of the Rangers roster to make sure Asham isn’t wearing #7.
…absolutely inexcusable for EA Sports to make this mistake. If it’s in the game, it’s in the game. Except for the retirement of Mark Messier’s number.
