Last week we encouraged you to vote to help propel Oilers forward Taylor Hall into the sweet sixteen of the EA Sports NHL ’14 cover voting contest that will see one NHLer showcased as the new poster boy for the video game. Well you did it. Hall is in the top sixteen and now faces off against Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the bracket competition.
Hall needs your help to beat Duchene and move on to round two where he would face off against with Patrick Sharp of the Chicago Blackhawks or stellar netminder Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Hall is slotted as the number three seed on his side of the bracket, proving that he was one of the more popular choices in the original pool of 32 players that were selected. John Tavares of the New York Islanders and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins finished ahead of Hall, but we won’t have to worry about either player for at least another round or two, providing we can get Hall past Duchene.
So make sure you cast your vote as many times as you feel necessary. Voting is unlimited and you can also earn up to ten sweepstakes entries per day that will see one lucky voter attend one game of the 2013 Stanley Cup final.
