NHL 14 Cover Vote Launches
Electronic Arts, the NHL and the NHLPA announced today the launch of the 2nd annual EA Sports NHL Cover Vote Campaign on NHL.com/CoverVote.
The voting process will consist of two preliminary rounds, followed by a 16-player bracket as a field of 60 NHL players is narrowed down to one. The winning player will be revealed as the NHL 14 Cover Athlete during the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Fans worldwide are encouraged to vote as often as possible at NHL.com/CoverVote.
This year fans can double their voting power by using player specific hashtags on “Twitter Vote Thursdays.” Each player specific hashtag used on Twitter on Thursdays will be counted as two official votes. Fans can join the conversation about the cover vote every day by using #NHL14CoverVote on Twitter and Instagram.
