First Legends Revealed for NHL 12

This year, NHL 12 brings some of hockey's greatest — and the Great One — onto the ice and into your living room. For the first time, you can play as NHL Legends from throughout the sport's storied history.

Aside from the legendary Wayne Gretzy, you can look forward to seeing Jeremy Roenick, Ray Bourque, Patrick Roy, Steve Yzerman, and Chris Chelios show the rookies how it's done. Watch a preview of their in-game appearances on the NHL 12 site. Remember to keep checking here for updates as additional legends are announced.

This fall, NHL 12 is ready to bring home all the intensity and action of professional hockey. This year's new additions include expansive goalie interaction, enhanced Be a Pro and Be a GM modes, improved physics, and Action Tracker, which monitors every detail of simulated games and allows you to jump into games as they're simulating. Sharpen your skates and get ready to live up to the legends on September 13th. Pre-order your copy on Origin today.
