Even though the current shortened NHL hockey season is just about ready to wind down, EA Sports is already ramping up for the next season.

The company has announced that it has begun the official cover voting for its upcoming hockey sim NHL 14, a game that will feature a far more aggressive fighting system and realistic physics to make every check look better than it ever has.

The vote features a number of superstars from every NHL team, from Martin Brodeur to Tyler Seguin to the Avalanche's own Matt Duchene.  Eventually, it'll come down to one superstar gracing the cover of the upcoming hockey game, so log in and make your vote count!

You can vote by heading over to the official NHL 14 page, but do it quickly, because there can be only one!

NHL 14 is scheduled to hit stores on September 10th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
