Game Description

It's time to hit the ice! The world's most critically acclaimed hockey series returns this year with all-new features set to keep you skating all year long. The big news is the Be a Pro Mode, which lets you create a character or pick a real-life pro and work your way up to superstardom. Choose your position, and get ready to hunker down, because unlike in normal hockey modes, you'll play only that position. Don't worry, though; you can take control of someone else while your player is on the bench. Coaches will give you personalized feedback to improve your game. And new offensive and defensive moves will push your capabilities to the max!
