Bring the crowd to their feet with 11 all-new goals celebrations. Check out the video above to see all of our new celebrations and learn how to add them to any player in the NHL 17 creation zone here.
Multiple improvements have been made to both human and AI goalies. New post lean save animations and logic have been added to improve coverage and prevent short side goals. AI goalies will hold their near post on pass attempts around the net to prevent easy short side goals. Goalies will now also pick up softer shots on net rather than make a save. Lateral movement has also been tuned to allow goaltenders to slide with momentum into saves for one-timer and wraparound situations.
Human and AI shooting has also seen animation and functionality improvements. Quicker snapshots have been added to one-timers when there isn’t enough time to take a full slapshot.
