Found March 30, 2012 on Bleed Black & Gold:

EA Sports is allowing the fans to choose who graces the cover of the NHL 13 cover this year.  They have narrowed it down to 60 finalists, two from each team.  For the Penguins you can choose between Marc-Andre Fleury and Evgeni Malkin.  Both have been great this year.  Fleury has beat his personal best and won a career high 41 games this season.  Malkin is on pace to win the Art Ross Trophy this year for the second time in his career, and most believe will be winning the league MVP as well.

You can vote now here, and voting goes until April 11th.  At that point the field will be narrowed to one representative per team.  The only Penguin to ever grace the cover was Mario Lemieux on NHL 2002.

If you had to choose between Fleury and Malkin, who would you pick to be on the cover?
