NHL 13 Cover Vote: Flyers Star Claude Giroux Will Grace Cover of Popular EA Game
The fans have spoken, and Claude Giroux is their man.
The announcement was made Wednesday during the live broadcast of the 2012 NHL Awards.
Who did you vote for in the final matchup?
Giroux won the honor after beating out Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne in the final, which was decided by less than a one percent margin. It was the slimmest margin of victory in the entire campaign, which lasted from March 29 to June 4.
Nearly 26 million fans voted on NHL.com during the process, with over two million voting in the final matchup alone. It was an excellent turnout in the league's first attempt at a cover vote, and it's no surprise that Giroux emerged as the favorite.
The 24-year-old had high expectations heading into the season, and he exceeded them all.
He finished first in the NHL in assists (65) and third in points (93), while leading the Flyers to 47 regular-season wins. He also excelled in the playoffs, scoring eight goals and dishing out nine assists in 10 postseason games.
