With EA Sports releasing NHL 12 in North America today, ice hockey fans with two X chromosomes will be happy to learn that the latest instalment in the franchise will include the option to create custom female players for the first time, all thanks to a 14-year old girl from Buffalo, NY, Lexi Peters.

Lexi penned a letter to EA Sports' COO Peter Moore, querying why there wasn't an option to create a female ice hockey players in the NHL games, somethin she believed to be “unfair to women and girl hockey players around the world.” Moore passed on the letter to NHL 12 Executive Producer, David Littman, who responded by including the female character creation option in the game.

The designers then invited Lexi to send in photographs of her face, so that her likeness could be used as the default female character in NHL 12. "Now she has an advantage over her brother," said Littman. "Her face is in the game — his isn't."

NHL 12 is out now in North America and released in Europe last week.
