  • Overview
    • Be a Legend Among Legends—Experience the glory of becoming a legend by shattering the records of some of the greatest to ever play the game, including Gretzky, Lemieux, Howe, and more. Set your sights and break historical milestones such as scoring 50 goals in 39 games like Gretzky or scoring a goal on your first NHL shift in your first NHL game like Lemieux.
    • Be a Pro Revamped—Playing as a legend or with your created pro, earn every shift on the ice with stellar play, big hits, and spectacular goals. Simulate the action to your next shift so you’re always on the ice as you play out your entire career gunning for the Stanley Cup. 
    • Full-Contact Physics Engine—From shattered glass and flying helmets to knocking players over the boards and into the bench, experience the skill and aggression of hockey like never before. Crash the crease too hard and you’ll knock the net off and send the goalie flying.
    • All-New Dynamic Goalie Interaction—Stonewall opponents with awe-inspiring desperation saves from your goalie as he covers every possible angle and works through screens and flying players in front of the net. When the action boils over, send a message by leaving the net, dropping the gloves, and trading punches with a heated rival during fights. 
    • Play in the Winter Classic—The NHL package jumps to life with the addition of the NHL Winter Classic, the league’s premier outdoor hockey event on New Year’s Day. Play under snowfall at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field as 70,000+ rabid fans provide inspiration by cheering you on while donning Winter Classic gear.
