Vote for the next EA NHL cover boy...like right now

Coming into this late, so do your part

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

To the surprise of what should be no one, Florida forward Aleksander Barkov is in the nomination process for EA's 2017 "NHL Hockey" series cover-art pretty boy. So go vote for him because he's Sasha.

Beyond EA having to change the logos, colors and entire uniform with a Barkov victory - easy enough to do these days - he's a legitimate real-world candidate based upon his performance in 2015-16: 59 points (28G) in 66 games with 8 game-winners. And he's yet to see his 21st birthday.
