Back on April 25, voting to select the cover athlete for NHL 13 commenced, with 16 different NHL players originally getting the nod. This is the first time the EA Sports gaming franchise has held a fan-participation tournament to select their cover athlete.
The initial list included players such as P.K. Subban, Henrik Lundqvist, Jordan Eberle, Steven Stamkos and many, many more.
The field has been whittled down to the final four participants, with two players per bracket. In the battle of Pennsylvania, Claude Giroux will face off against Evgeni Malkin to advance to the finals. In the other bracket, John Tavares squares off against Pekka Rinne.
Who has the best shot to win the honor of gracing the cover of NHL 13?
Let's power-rank them.
