Game Description

Lace up your skates, grab your stick, and hit the ice in the most realistic hockey game in history. Start with the groundbreaking face-off system, which brings never-before-seen levels of depth and strategy to every drop of the puck.

Hundreds of new animations make the game as realistic as possible. The game was developed with the help of NHL MVP, Joe Thornton, who offered his expertise and personal experiences of real-life hockey.
