Patrice Bergeron on cover of NHL 15

At Tuesday night’s NHL Awards show, EA Sports was on hand to make the announcement regarding who would grace the cover of NHL 15.

After weeks of voting, it was revealed that Boston Bruins’ forward Patrice Bergeron was chosen by the fans to be the face of the popular NHL game franchise, beating out Montreal Canadiens’ defenseman P.K. Subban in the final round.

Bergeron beat out six other NHL stars for the right to grace the cover. In head-to-head voting, the Bruins star beat out San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture and St. Louis Blues scorer T.J. Oshie before going against division rival Subban in the finals.

Mike’s Musings: Though I’m not necessarily a fan of the player on the cover, I love the cover of the game itself. In my opinion, it just looks a lot flashier than covers of games’ past, which makes it stand out much more.

    I think Bergeron’s selection is wonderful. As a Bruins fan, I’m proud of Bergeron and I certainly believe that he’s a Class act, from a classy organization. In fact, many of the Bruins are class acts and put to shame comments by Bruin hatrers, who say the B’s are a bunch of goons. Fact: All the Bruins have talent and there is no one on the team, who is simply there because he’s a goon. This is something neither Montreal, Buffalo, or several other teams could say last season. Montreal had Parros and Buffalo had John Scott – both goons with no talent whatsoever. The only thing they could do were to perform “staged” fights, and then exit for the night. They belong in professional wrestling, not hockey.
