Wayne Gretzky in NHL 12

Oh, thank the gods of hockey, NHL 12 will be seeing a slew of legends take the ice and play the game. Three announcements were made today concerning which classic players will be featured in this year’s edition of the fan favorite franchise. There will be more announced soon.

But, for now, EA Sports has announced that NHL 12 will feature Wayne Gretzky (as seen in “The Office” in the header image above), Ray Bourque and Chris Chelios. Six players remain unannounced, and one of them is definitely a goalie. See for yourself in the picture below. Besides the netminder, dig the guy on the left without a helmet… My guess? Maurice “The Rocket” Richard.

Legends Coming to NHL 12

EA Sports released a trailer to pad their announcement. Any hockey fans out there want to take a stab at the other legends showcased in the clip below? I smell Mario Lemieux…


NHL 12 is set to release for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this September 13th.
