NHL 14’s cover vote is underway

Last year, 25 million votes were cast in the first annual EA SPORTS NHL Cover Vote Campaign and now it’s back again for this year. Voting for the NHL 14 cover will consist of two preliminary rounds, followed by a 16-player bracket as a field of 60 NHL players is narrowed down to one. Fans can double their voting power by using these player specific hashtags on “Twitter Vote Thursdays”.

The winning player will be announced during the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals. Fans are encouraged to vote as often as possible at NHL.com/CoverVote to esnure their favorite player makes it onto the cover.

“After last year’s record setting campaign where more than 25 million votes were cast, this is another tremendous opportunity for our fans to once again show their support for their team and selected players by voting in this second installment of the EA SPORTS NHL Cover Vote Campaign,” Dave McCarthy, NHL Vice President Consumer Products Marketing. “We look forward to our fans’ creativity and incomparable passion in driving another record setting vote count and ultimately determining who will grace the cover of NHL 14 worldwide.”
