Martin Brodeur selected for NHL 14 cover
New Jersey Devils goaltender selected by fan vote
Electronic Arts has announced that New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has been selected by fans as the NHL 14 cover athlete.
Brodeur defeated Columbus Blue Jackets goalie and Vezina Trophy winner, Sergei Bobrovsky to claim the cover. The NHL 14 cover will be the first to feature a goalie since John Vanbiesbrouck appeared on the cover of NHL ‘97.
“The support I’ve received throughout the cover vote campaign has been incredible. My kids pushed me to participate in the campaign, and they are really excited to see their dad on the cover of the game they play all the time. I want to thank all the NHL fans who campaigned and voted for me,” said Brodeur.
Hosted on NHL.com for the second year, the EA NHL 14 campaign gave fans the opportunity to select the face of the NHL 14 cover. Fans cast more than 22 million votes in the second annual cover athlete campaign.
NHL 14 will be available on September 10, 2013 in North America and by September 13, 2013 worldwide on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
