Built to harness the power of next generation consoles NHL 15 allows you to experience the sights, sounds and feel of real hockey action like never before.

Experience the hard hitting chaos and unpredictability of the sport as real-world physics are extended to all 12 players on the ice, as well as the puck itself.

Look, move, play and think like a real hockey player with all new authentic player modelling and an evolved arsenal of tools, including the Superstar Skill Stick and Vision AI that allow for an unprecedented level of control and elevated player intelligence. Take in the emotion of every play as you immerse yourself in authentic arenas across the National Hockey League.

You’ll play in front of a full house of fans created with 9,000 dynamic and individual crowd models, the most ever in a sports videogame.

Finally, witness the most realistic broadcast package to date, as NHL 15 overhauls the look of the game with the new NBC Sports Game Day Presentation featuring the commentary team of Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick and Eddie Olczy. TSN analyst Ray Ferraro will also provide insights at ice level.

Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been voted by hockey fans to be the EA Sports NHL 15 cover athlete. Bergeron topped Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban following more than 10 million votes from hockey fans around the world.

"Being featured on the cover of NHL 15 is a dream come true," said Bruins center Patrice Bergeron. "The fact that the cover is selected entirely by fans is an incredible feeling. The passion and support from hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, is unlike any other sport and I'm so grateful to everyone who voted for me."

"Congratulations to Patrice Bergeron for being chosen by the fans as the EA Sports NHL 15 cover athlete," said Adam Larry, NHLPA Director of Licensing and Associate Counsel. "We enjoyed seeing the passion that fans displayed in supporting the eight NHL players participating in this year's NHL 15 vote campaign, as well as the entertaining activations from the players who were vying for the title. This program is a great way to kick off a big year for the NHL videogame franchise."

"We would like to congratulate Patrice on this incredible honor and to recognize the outstanding fan support that helped him earn the NHL 15 cover distinction," said Dave McCarthy, NHL Vice President of Consumer Products Marketing. "Once again, we were amazed with the level of engagement, creativity and support exhibited by our teams and our fans that truly exemplified the unrivaled level of passion and commitment only found in the NHL."
