NHL 21 gets an NHL 94 demake... but only as a pre-order bonus

One of the greatest sports video games of all-time is getting a roster update in about a month. Current NHL players are being dragged all the way back to the mid-'90s. EA Sports has revealed NHL 94 Rewind, which doesn't involve Mario Lemieu...

Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid is NHL 18's cover athlete

The drought is over! After a grueling one-year absence from the cover of EA's hockey video game, a young Canadian man is once again the athlete on the front of NHL. (Not to be confused with a Canadien man.) At tonight's NHL Awards, Edmonto...

Review: NHL 17

I got out to a blazing start in the first game in Franchise Mode with my beloved Colorado Avalanche. Somewhere toward the end of the first, centerman Carl Soderberg netted the team's third goal of the period. Things couldn't have been going...

NHL 17 team ratings have been revealed

The hockey season is still a few months away, but EA Sports has its opinions on how each team is shaping up. With the NHL 17 beta officially out tomorrow, we got our hands on it a bit early and took a look at each team's ratings. Whil...

NHL 17 shows off the new ways to keep pucks out of your net

NHL 17, like all annualized sports games, is committed to a steady stream of gameplay improvements each and every year. I had a chance to see that first-hand at E3 last month, where I wrote about some of the more important changes; this ne...

Grading EA's E3 2016 press conference

Maybe you missed it, but yesterday Electronic Arts held an event where a famous (?) soccer manager came on stage to talk about FIFA. There were other games, too, and by EA's unfortunate standards the press conference was better than the la...

EA sure botched that NHL prediction

The Washington Capitals just flamed out of the NHL playoffs in the second round, and with the loss goes EA Sports' prediction that they'd win the Stanley Cup this year. Pittsburgh centerman Nick Bonino dashed that forecast with a game six o...

Review: NHL 16

In the mandatory initial matchup in NHL 16, I was forced to choose between last year's Stanley Cup Final contenders. I had to back either the Chicago Blackhawks who I very much dislike, or the Tampa Bay Lightning who I am very ambivalent to...

NHL 16 pegs Anaheim Ducks as Stanley Cup champs

It's not exactly a leap of faith, but NHL 16 has used its magical season simulating video game powers to predict that the Anaheim Ducks will win the 2016 Stanley Cup. By most accounts, Anaheim enters the season as the Western Conferen...

EA Sports was the most cringeworthy thing at E3 thus far

This is an actual tweet from an actor hired to be "Tha Hoop Gawd" by EA to pretend to be a celebrity during its conference. This was approved by someone at EA. Tha Hoop Gawd came on the stage to demo the GameFace app for NBA Live 16 that p...

Review: NHL 15

With regard to sports games, the most important facet of any given title should always be the actual playing of the sport. That's how NHL 15 is. It mostly shines when you're on-ice, leading the charge through the neutral zone or lining...

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to...
