Claude Giroux Wins Cover Vote of EA Sports’ NHL 13

Claude Giroux will be on the cover of EA Sports’ NHL 13. Giroux beat out Nashville Predators’ goaltender Pekka Rinne in the video game’s first Cover Vote Finals, where fans voted which player they would like to be on the cover of the video game. Giroux’s victory in the Cover Vote was announced last night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada. Giroux is the fifth different Flyer to be on the cover of a video game based off the NHL in their time with Philadelphia and the first since Jeremy Roenick was on the cover of ESPN NHL Hockey in 2003.
