It is that time of the year again. With the official trailer of the game out, and fans anxiously awaiting the release of the next version of the popular EA Sports title – it is time for fans to start voting on who will grace the 2014 edition of the cover.
Voting starts today on the first round of ballots. Starting today and going through Sunday April 28th, fans will narrow the field of 60 players, two from each team into the 32 player bracket.
Fans can vote by going to the NHL.com website and casting their votes online.
Fans can also vote via Twitter, with votes on Thursday counting double.
Only twelve teams have been featured since 1997 – is it time the Buffalo Sabres graced the cover of one of the most popular sports game franchises?
Can Miller or Vanek take on the rest of the league and last into the final days of voting?
Voting on round one will close on Sunday. The 32 player pool voting will take place from April 29th to May 5th. The field of 32 will be knocked down to a 32 player bracket – which fans can vote on during the 20 days of May from the 6th to the 26.
The Finals will be voted on from May 27th to June 2nd, with the winner of the EA NHL 14 cover being announced during the Stanley Cup Finals.
