In a shocking announcement today from EA Sports, makers of NHL 15, Gary Bettman, commissioner of the NHL will be joining the cover vote in a surprise bonus round.
Fans will be able to vote for Gary Bettman against the winner of the Subban VS Bergeron round.
“It was defiantly a surprise.” Said Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA. “We didn’t even plan on doing this until a few hours ago when Mr. Bettman gave us a call and threatened to revoke our license to use NHL teams and players unless we gave him a chance to be on the cover.”
We asked Gary Bettman why he wanted to be on the cover of NHL 15.
“I have done so many things that no other commissioner has done before, I’ve had three lockouts, been booed countless times by fans… I wanted to add another thing to my resume that I could show to the MLB when I apply to take over Bud Selig’s spot next year.”
But don’t worry hockey fans, EA Sports assured us that this bonus round of the cover vote would be fair and not rigged in any way, shape or form. Just like all the other rounds.
