NHL 17 announced
Fan vote for cover athlete for annual hockey sim begins today
Electronic Arts in partnership with the National Hockey League has announced that fans will determine the next face of the franchise through the NHL 17 Cover Vote.
This year, eight hockey superstars - one from each of the eight teams competing in the World Cup of Hockey 2016 - have been selected to represent their NHL and national teams as they compete for the cover. Voting begins today on NHL.com and on Twitter, and fans are permitted to support their favorite player by voting as many times as they want, ensuring their pick advances to the final rounds.
Fans can also sign up to become an NHL 17 Insider and get early access to news, trailers, behind-the-scenes videos, exclusive content and more.
NHL 17 is in development at EA Canada in Vancouver and will be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this year.
