Carlson vs. Backstrom for EA Sports NHL 14 Cover

Posted April 22, 2013

EA Sports is once again letting fans decide who will grace the cover of its annual NHL video game. This year, representing the Capitals in the vote is defenseman John Carlson and center Nicklas Backstrom.

Carlson is already campaigning for himself:

Alex Ovechkin has already been on the cover for NHL 07, and again for 09 in specific regions. Backstrom, too, was on the cover for NHL 10 but only in specific regions (read: Sweden).

So give some love to John Carlson since this means a lot to him.

Because Caps fans only care about those two, and none of the other 58 players who can potentially win, we at Caps Outsider will hold our own ‘Who should be on the cover?’ poll, and vote on the real poll at EA Sports’ site.

Who Should be on the Cover?

  • Nicklas Backstrom (67%, 89 Votes)
  • John Carlson (33%, 44 Votes)

Total Voters: 133
