On Monday, Electronic Arts announced the eight players vying to be on the cover of NHL ’15: T.J. Oshie, P.K. Subban, Phil Kessel, Patrice Bergeron, Erik Karlsson, Logan Couture, Drew Doughty and Matt Duchene.
None of the above players have been on the cover before, though Subban was on the front of a limited edition of NHL ’13 that was released in Quebec. Last year, Devils goalie Martin Brodeur graced the cover of NHL ’14 after beating out Sergei Bobrovsky in the final of the voting contest.
Speaking of the vote, there are a few ways you can select who’ll be this year’s cover boy (or, man). From EA:
