Because we deserve something nice.

The Blue Jackets just missed their second-ever playoff appearance - on the last day of the season, no less - and the stellar play in goal of netminder Sergei "Bob" Bobrovsky was a key reason.

Now, Bob has a shot at making the cover of EA Sports popular NHL series, but only with your help, Columbus!

Wouldn't this be cool? Yeah, it would.

Bob is a semifinalist in fan voting for the cover of NHL 14. You can vote online here, but it's easier (and more fun) to just tweet with the hashtag #NHL14Bobrovsky, especially on Thursday when votes count double!

See? Look at how fun:

And remember, he's the #1 cop in town!
