defeated Niklas Backstrom
in the first matchup of the EA SPORTS NHL 13 Cover Vote. Now the Wild captain needs your vote in the second round.
Koivu is in a battle royal against some guys named Jordan Eberle, Matt Duchene, Mikael Backlund and Henrik Sedin. We all know Koivu could mop-up the ice with these guys, but now he needs the State of Hockey legion to back him up and vote.
You have until April 22 to vote Koivu into the second round. The round will start with 32 players, who will be voted down to a short list of 16 players. From there, the Round of 16, which runs April 24 – June 4 is a single-elimination playoff bracket that decides the NHL 13 cover athlete.
It’s up to you State of Hockey. To cast your vote for Koivu, go here
