FEMALE FLAIR: YAHOO SPORTS’ Sean Leahy reported female hockey players Hayley Wickenheiser and Angela Ruggiero appear in EA Sports' "NHL 13," set to be released Sept. 11. It will mark the “first time female athletes have been playable characters in the NHL series.” The pair, along with former NHLers Jari Kurri, Dominik Hasek and Doug Gilmour, will “join the nine legends from last year's game" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 8/28). Wickenheiser said, "You know, what's great is that females are 50 per cent of the population that play video games nowadays, and 50 per cent of the population, or more than that, so I think it's a natural fit. I think women's sport has really grown" (CP, 8/28).
