Fox Sports Tennessee:
Mike Fisher wants your vote.
The Predators forward is among the final 32 players in the fan-generated voting to appear on the cover of EA Sports' "NHL 14."
Fisher is getting into the self-campaigning act, breaking down the reasons you should support him in a video that includes his many attributes.
Mike is a great dresser.
People want to interview him.
He loves highlow fives -- and giving autographs.
He has great hair.
He can play volleyball.
He eats tennis balls for fun.
There's no mention of his country music star wife, Carrie Underwood, though she is getting in on the act, lending her support on Twitter.
On May 2, EA Sports is encouraging fans to vote on Twitter from noon-11:59 p.m. ET, with all votes cast during that time counting double. Fans should use the hashtag NHL14Fisher and there is no cap on the number of votes fans can cast.
Fans can also vote at covervote.nhl.com, which can also be accesses through nashvillepredators.com.
The Round of 32 voting will run through May 5 and after the file is cut down to 16 teams and from that point there will be weekly single-elimination matchups on May 6-12, May 13-19 and May 20-26.
The final head-to-head voting will take play on May 27-June 2.
Fisher, who already beat out teammate Brandon Yip in the first round, is the latest Predator to make it the far in the voting. Last season, goaltender Pekka Rinne advanced to the finals, but it was the Flyers' Claude Giroux won would wind up gracing the cover.

When he heard his name, he wasn’t even paying attention.
“When I got drafted, I thought they would say my new team, Frölunda,” Magnus Hellberg told us with a smile. “But they said my old one, Almtuna. So I didn’t connect at the beginning. But then I was like ‘Hey! That’s me!’”
The general consensus in 2011 (and most years, really) was that the main need for the...
