Hockey fans are a passionate bunch, especially when it comes to their favorite players. EA Sports is hoping to feed off that with their NHL 14 Cover Vote for the upcoming hockey sim. Last year this vote landed Claude Giroux on the cover and generated a whopping 25 million votes.
All you have to do to make your voice heard is head over here, register, and start selecting players in head to head matchups. The schedule for this contest is as follows:
- Round of 60 (April 22-28): Teammate vs. teammate. One representative from each team plus two wild card selections advance.
- 32-Player Leaderboard (April 29-May 5): Fans vote for their favorite 16 candidates; top 16 vote-getters advance.
- 16-player Bracket (May 6-May 26): Weekly round-by-round, single-elimination playoff bracket decides finalists.
- The Finals (May 27-June 2): Winner takes the NHL 14 Cover.
There are plenty of high-profile playmakers involved in the voting, including John Tavares, Evander Kane, Jamie Benn, Tyler Sequin, Patrick Sharp, and many more. For the full list, head on over this site and check it out.
