EA SPORTS™, the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA®) and the National Hockey League (NHL®) announced today the quarterfinal matchups in the next round of the EA SPORTS NHL®14 Cover Vote. Voting for this round is now live and fans can vote an unlimited number of times at NHL.com/CoverVote. The round closes on May 19 at 11:59pm ET. The winner of the cover vote campaign will be revealed as the NHL 14 Cover Athlete during the 2013 Stanley Cup® Final.

NHL® 14 Cover Vote Round of 16 Recap

The Round of 16 featured some extraordinarily close matchups and included some notable upsets:
  • The Battle of Pennsylvania: For the second year in a row, Evgeni Malkin has been defeated by a Philadelphia Flyers player. Last year, Malkin lost to NHL 13 Cover Athlete Claude Giroux in the semifinals. This year, Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds unseeded Malkin.
  • As Close as they Come: At final tally, less than 100 votes separated winner Taylor Hall and his opponent Matt Duchene in this round.
  • Two Maple Leafs Advance against Original SixTM Rivals: A strong Game Six performance may have helped Joffrey Lupul and James van Riemsdyk overcome their opponents, P.K. Subban and Tyler Seguin, respectively.

I'm a PENS fan, and can care less if Gino didn't get a cover vote. At least this voting has upsets unlike Madden's which seemed a bit set up from the brackets. No need to be so salty, illmatic...

Red wing should have been on the cover along time ago it's almost too late now buy I hope datsuyk gets it but would have been happier with a Canada player

Hopefully Lupul or Van Riemsdyk can get the cover. Not realistically though...

I'm not remotely a Devils fan, but I think I'd like to see Brodeur on there just because it will probably be his last year and he's had one hell of a career.
