During the recent National Hockey League (NHL) Awards held in Las Vegas, Electronic Arts (EA) announced NHL 19 will feature 200 current and legacy players from the North American professional ice hockey league.
The legendary names also include NHL's all-time highest goalscorer Wayne Gretzky, who represented as many as four teams in a 20-year-long career. NHL 19 will give gamers the option to compete in outdoor rinks and not just professional arenas.
The game will come with two new modes — NHL Ones and Pro-Am — and allow you to customise a player as many as 900 times. NHL Ones features a three-player face-off with no rules or stoppage time, making it hard-hitting and action-packed, compared to other standard modes.

The game will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on September 14. It will come in three editions — Ultimate (Rs 6,999), Legend (Rs 5,999) and Standard (Rs 3,375).
Those who pre-order the Ultimate and Legend editions can start playing the game from September 11 onwards.
NHL comprises 31 teams (24 from the United States and seven from Canada). And the game will feature all the official teams. Keeping in view the revenue, NHL ranks fifth among all professional sports leagues in the world.
