A Conn Smythe, a Calder trophy, Stanley Cup, 2 Art Ross Trophies, a possible Hart Trophy, and a chance to be on the NHL 13 video game cover. Evgeni Malkin has a chance to get his Russian mug on the NHL 13 cover after beating Scott Hartnell in a fan voted bracket.
For the folks who are reading this and wondering why the heck this site is posting a story about a video game cover, well in my opinion I think having Geno’s face on the cover is a very big deal. Not everyone in this world is hockey fans. I could probably go out on a limb and say there are more gamers than hockey fans. I look at this and think having a Pittsburgh Penguin on the video game cover could attract some new fans to the team and the sport. I am a glass half full kind of person.
I have been playing video games ever since I was able to pick up a controller. Nothing gives me more satisfaction when I buy a new sports video game and a player from one of my favorite teams is on it. I could get my wish again this year with the new NHL 13 game.
So those folks who stumble upon this article lets give Geno the votes he deserves and get his face on the cover of NHL 13.
Here is the link to go vote for Geno.
