NHL: NJ Devils Goalie Martin Brodeur Wins NHL 14 Cover Honor

Jul 1 2013, 2:41am CDT | by

Long-time New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur emerged victorious as NHL 14's cover model, beating out Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur can now add being an NHL 14 cover athlete to his long list of accolades.

Brodeur was officially declared winner on Friday and will be featured on the game's cover after a vote campaign that included roughly 23 million votes, with one million coming from Twitter, per the NHL's official website. He edged out fellow goaltender, Russian Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets. 

By virtue of his victory, Brodeur became the first NHL goaltender to be cover athlete of the video game since John Vanbiesbrouck of the Florida Panthers pulled it off in 1997. 

He expressed excitement as it represented an honor for him, his family and the Devils organization. 

"I'm really excited to get voted on the NHL 14 cover. I think it's a great honor for me and my family to represent not just myself but the New Jersey Devils on the cover of the EA Sports NHL game."

A June 29 report written by Rich Chere of the New Jersey Star-Ledger quotes NHL vice president of consumer products marketing Dave McCarthy on Brodeur's victory.  

"We would like to congratulate Marty for this exceptional recognition of his accomplished career and salute our fans' appreciation for his incredible achievements both on and off the ice as they campaigned rigorously and voted him as the NHL 14 cover athlete. Throughout the cover vote campaign, our teams and fans exhibited creative and relentless support for their favorite players and their passion and dedication to hockey is the best in all of professional sports."

Ironically, the 41-yeard-old Brodeur himself admitted it's been more than a decade since he last played video games. Nonetheless, this latest honor would be another welcome addition to his list of achievements which include three-time Stanley Cup champion, four-time Veniza trophy winner and two Olympic gold medals. 

It was a weekend to remember for Brodeur as his son Anthony was drafted by his team, the Devils, in the seventh round (208th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft on Sunday. The draft pick was made possible by New Jersey general manager Lou Lamoriello making a trade with the 2012 Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
