Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell might have been snubbed for the Hart Trophy (league MVP) but both guys could still wind up with a big honor.
Giroux is a one-seed up against the Canadiens P.K. Subban and Hartnell is a two-seed up against Boston’s Tyler Seguin in the bracket to pick the cover boy for EA Sports’ NHL 13.
It might not be the heralded Madden cover but it’s still quite the honor to grace the cover of a video game.
If Hartnell of Giroux beat out the 16-man field, they would be the first Flyers player to be on the cover since Eric Lindros graced the cover of NHL 99.
Voting opened Wednesday and goes for a week. And feel free to vote early and often since you are allowed up to 10 entries a day.
One thing to watch for though, unless they reseed, the two Flyers All-Stars could face each other in Round 2.
Check back to see if they win.
