Vote for the next EA NHL cover right now

Coming into this late, so do your part

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.
