This morning, EA Sports announced the Round of 32 for the NHL 13 cover vote. Pekka Rinne beat out David Legwand in the Nashville-centric vote to be among the Round of 32. This round’s voting will end on April 22, with the top 16 players advancing to the next round.
In an interview last week, Rinne said he has been a fan of the game in the past.
“I used to play a lot more, but the last couple years I haven’t played as much,” he said. “I’m a big fan of the game. It was my favorite game growing up. They always do an unbelievable job creating the game; nowadays it’s so realistic with the players and all that you can do.
“I’m pretty excited about [being a nominee]. It would be pretty cool [to get on the cover]. They always have the best players in the league on it. It would be nice, but I’m sure there are pretty quality players in the vote, too.”
The voting is unlimited between now and April 22nd. You can vote here.
