Joe Pavelski loses to Tarasenko for NHL 17 Cover

By  | 

After six-million votes, Plover's Joe Pavelski will not be on the cover of EA Sports' NHL 17. Pavelski came in second to St. Louis Blues forward, Vladimir Tarasenko.

Pavelski was the leading goal-scorer (14) during the playoffs this season after helping the San Jose Sharks make it to their first-ever Stanley Cup final. The Sharks eventually would lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.

Tarasenko was named the winner at the NHL Awards on Wednesday.
