Brodeur, who has played in the NHL All-Star Game ten times and has won the William M. Jennings Trophy goaltender award a joint-record five times, was selected as the result of an online fan vote that accumulated 22 million votes over the course of its campaign.
Fellow goalie Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets was the other finalist, with the winner becoming the first goaltender cover athlete in "NHL" series history since 1996.
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game has been given a September 10 release date in North America, due out elsewhere from September 13.
