It came down between Joe Pavelski and Vladimir Tarasenko, and while one might've won the Western Conference Championship, the other won the prize that really matters: the NHL 17 Cover Vote!
No, wait, winning the West probably matters more. Semantics, whatever.
Regardless, Tarasenko will be the first Blue to grace the cover of one of EA Sports' NHL games since Chris Pronger did in 2000. The cover vote was decided by the fans, who voted on Twitter using the #NHLTarasenko hashtag and on EA Sports' website.
Congrats to Tarasenko and the Blues for the honor.
