EA Sports and NHL.com have announced the winner of the first ever EA Sports NHL Cover Vote campaign for NHL 13.  26 million votes later the victor was Philadelphia Flyers forward, Claude Giroux.  Giroux was neck and neck with Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne and only beat him by a 1% margin; making it the closest matchup of the entire campaign.

The campaign sponsored by Blackberry lasted between March 29th and June 4th and 2 million of the 26 million votes were casted during the Stanley Cup Finals alone.  NHL 13 is set to release on September 11th in North America and September 14th in Europe, but until then stay tuned for more here at HeyUGuys Gaming.
