Scott Hartnell has had a pretty epic week. There was the “watcha gonna do, brother” gif from earlier this week. There were his thoughts on the upcoming Pens/Flyers series. And then there was today.

Today Hartnell released his campaign to be the cover athlete on NHL 13. It features a rather cleaned up Hartnell addressing the hockey world in his quest to be on the cover of the world’s most popular hockey game. Quite frankly, he earned all of my votes.

Now, I understand if you get frustrated when your team plays against Hartnell, he’s that type of guy. The fact is though, he is awesome. He’s thoroughly entertaining, does good things with the Hartnell Down charity effort and brings smiles to kids faces. Also, points for killer haircut.

Join me in supporting his cause to be on the cover of NHL 13. Voting details were passed along by us here.
