The Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby and the Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane are featured on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated, which includes a preview of the 2013-14 NHL season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins' Sidney Crosby and the Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane are featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. 

Crosby will be on the regional cover while Kane will be on the national cover. Both the Penguins and Blackhawks tweeted pictures of the covers. 

The issue includes a 20-page preview of the upcoming 2013-14 NHL season, including storylines about the league's recent realignment, new divisions, playoff format, rivalries and salary structure. 

Picks, predictions and analysis from esteemed SI writers such as Brian Cazeneuve, Sarah Kwak, Allan Muir and Pierre McGuire will spice things up for hockey fans. The staff predicted Chicago will just be the second team since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings to repeat as Stanley Cup champions.

As a matter of fact, the edition with Kane on the cover features the headline "Repeat After Us: Champs. Again."

And who did SI predict to be the Blackhawks' Eastern Conference counterparts in the Stanley Cup Finals? No other than Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins.

On the other hand, the cover is the fourth for the Blackhawks in a six-month span, per the Chicago Tribune

Kane is certainly excited about it.

"It's pretty exciting. Not only for yourself personally but for where this team is at. It seems like we've been on it quite a bit lately. It's a good thing for hockey. Obviously, being a Blackhawk helps you get these opportunities."

The media attention continues to grow for Kane, who recently shot a SportsCenter advertisement and a video of his amazing puck-handling abilities.
