Cover boy Brodeur


At age 41 and after 20 NHL seasons, New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur still has it – on and off the ice. Brodeur was selected by fans as the EA SPORTS NHL14 cover athlete, beating out Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky – this season’s Vezina Trophy winner. This marks the first time the game featured a goalie since John Vanbiesbrouck was chosen for NHL ’97. “It’s a great honor. This is a lot different than other things because fans voted,” Brodeur said. “We had over 22 million voters. For me to be able to be on top of all the players that were involved in the campaign, it’s pretty cool.” – Associated Press
