Congratulations to Martin Brodeur! He beat out Sergei Bobrovsky to don the cover of EA Sports’ next installment of the EA NHL series. The cover was released earlier today on Sportscentre Canada and EA Sports has just uploaded the trailer revealing him as the next cover athlete. The video can be found here.
There was a lot of speculation going into the Finals if Brodeur deserved the honor over Bobrovsky considering Sergei had a dazzling year that ended with a Vezina Trophy honor.This may have been Marty’s last shot at the honor of donning the cover though, as he isn’t getting any younger. Since the whole Cover Vote is fan-based and essentially a popularity contest, it wasn’t much of a surprise to have arguably the best goalie of all time on the cover for the first time.
NHL 14 will be available to North American customers on September 10th and to everyone else on September 13th.
