The Final NHL 12 Legends Revealed

Ever wondered how the third highest scorer in NHL history would stand against one of the most highly regarded European defensemen? In NHL 12's all-new Legends Mode you can test the famed strength of Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe, against the Swedish defenseman who made a name for European players, Börje Salming.

Howe and Salming join two-time Stanley Cup winner and Pittsburgh Penguins icon, Mario Lemieux, as the newest superstars announced for NHL 12's Legends Mode. These three — along with previously announced legends, Wayne Gretzky, Jeremy Roenick, Ray Bourque, Patrick Roy, Steve Yzerman, and Chris Chelios — can be added to any team in your quest for domination on the ice. Watch a preview of all nine hockey greats in action and start planning how to use them to improve your team.

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.
