Former Waterloo Black Hawks skater Joe Pavelski could end up on the cover of EA Sports' "NHL 17", but he needs your help.

EA Sports has been a leader in sports simulation video games, and the NHL franchise game has been a top seller. Landing the cover of the games packaging has become an honor that most sports athletes covet. EA Sports now lets the fans vote who should be on the iconic cover.

We can help former Waterloo Black Hawks skater Joe Pavelski, now playing for the San Jose Sharks, land the cover.

Cast you vote now (vote here), and you can vote as many times as you like. There is no limit! You can also cast your vote on Twitter using his player hashtag "#NHL17Pavelski". It's down to just Pavelski and Vladimir Tarasenko of the St. Louis Blues for the honor.

VOTING CLOSES MONDAY, MAY 16, 2016 at 2:00 PM-CDT
