We are fast approaching the end of the NHL regular season with the playoffs right around the corner. Pierce’s Pittsburgh Penguins will be basking in postseason glory, while my favorite Anaheim Ducks are sadly headed for greener pastures. …Like the golf green.
But even though the 2011-2012 season is still going on, it’s never too early to look ahead to the next season, both on the ice and in the video games. Yup, that’s right, EA Sports is beginning to get things going publicly for their upcoming hockey game NHL 13 (Oh my god I’m so excited!).
For the first time ever, EA is giving fans the chance to vote on their favorite player to be the cover athlete of the storied video game franchise. Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller has been nominated, and he wants your votes. Badly. So much so that he has launched a video campaign to get your votes. Take a look…
If you recall, Jonas was the comedic star in another great video. He gave us a big laugh without even saying anything!
Now he’s at it again with this video…
…as well as two smaller follow-ups:
Great goalie, great actor… and he’d be a great cover athlete for NHL 13. So go vote for him. His name is Jonas.
Thanks to Anaheim Calling for sharing the videos.
