It's no secret the Blackhawks have some of the top players in the NHL. EA Sports agrees, too.

Marian Hossa and Patrick Kane are both listed as two of the top right wingers in the upcoming NHL 15 video game, EA Sports announced Thursday. Hossa and Kane join Duncan Keith as the top players in their position

However, you might be surprised to see who ranks higher of the two. Hossa was awarded a 91 player rating (No. 2) ahead of Kane (No. 4) who received an 89.

EA Sports explains their player summary below:

Hossa might not have the same star power as the other players on this list, but make no mistake, he is arguably the best all-round right winger in the game. With five-star ratings in Puck Skills, Senses, Skating, and Defense – Hossa does it all. 

Kane possesses one of the highest skill sets in the entire league with five star Puck Skills, Shooting, Skating, and Senses. His Puck Skills are elite with (94) Passing and Puck Control, (95) Hand-Eye, and (96) Deking. The only thing lacking in his game is Physical ability – coming in at only two and a half stars.

Anaheims' Corey Perry topped the list with a rating of 92, Toronto's Phil Kessel (90) came in at No. 3 and New York' Martin St. Louis (88) concluded at No. 5.

NHL 15 is now available for fans via pre-order. The game will continue to reveal additional player rankings in the upcoming days.
