NHL 18 Game Features

EA SPORTS NHL® 18 delivers the creativity of today's young NHL with new Creative Attack controls and the all-new Defensive Skill Stick. Play the fast-paced, arcade-inspired 3-on-3 EA SPORTS™ NHL® THREES mode, or reshape the league entirely with the new Expansion Draft and your own custom 32nd NHL team. Do it all with the most co-op and competitive multiplayer options ever delivered in an EA SPORTS NHL game.

THE ICE IS YOUR PLAYGROUND

On attack, all-new creative dekes include between-the-legs shooting, one-handed dekes, back-handed toe-drags and much more - including the ability to link moves together for moment-to-moment decision making. On defense, the all-new Defensive Skill Stick gives you the tools to counter attacks with poke check targeting, extended pokes, and controlled stick sweeps to cover zones of the ice and take away lanes.

ARCADE-INSPIRED 3-ON-3 HOCKEY

Introducing EA SPORTS™ NHL® THREES, a bold new take on fast-paced, over-the-top 3-on-3 hockey action. The all-new arcade-inspired hockey experience features faster ice, bigger hits and high-scoring action that's easy to pick-up-and-play.

EXPERIENCE EXPANSION IN THE NEW NHL

In Franchise Mode, reshape the entire NHL with the new Expansion Draft feature where you get to create and draft a 32nd NHL team and shake up the league. Run an authentic expansion draft where you select the best players from across the league, build a unique roster and take on the front office role to manage the team, the business and the games.
