ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A St. Louis Blues star is getting closer to being the face of one of the world’s most popular hockey video games.
Vladimir Tarasenko beat Victor Hedman of the Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 1 of the EA Sports NHL 17 cover vote contest, an online contest to see whose face will be on the video game’s cover. This year, it’s up to the fans.
There are two more rounds, and we’ll find out Tuesday who Tarasenko will go up against in Round 2.
Voting in Round 2 starts Tuesday and runs through next Monday, May 9.
