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.

And new offensive and defensive moves will push your capabilities to the max!
