NHL 09 is turning heads once again with all new features that make it the ultimate hockey simulation! Here are a few of the features in NHL 09:
* All New, Teemu Selanne inspired Dive-Stick®
Master all of the spectacular diving and penalty drawing action with EA's all new Dive-Stick®. The Dive-Stick® replaces the Skill-Stick this year, in order to allow players to perform awesome Selanne-style dives.
* Custom Dive-Play® Creator
Want more diving? Jump into our Dive-Play® Creator to design your own custom dive plays involving your whole team. You may even add fake wincing and crying to ensure the ref awards you with your much needed power play situation.
* Choose from over 100 non-regulation sticks
Controlling a puck and delivering amazing shot speed is difficult in the NHL. Solve this problem the way Teemu Selanne did by modifying your stick with an extended blade, or even out-of-compliance blade curvature. (Note: Using a modified stick may result in league-wide embarrassment if detected by Coach Ron Wilson, again)
* Expansive Online Modes
Ever wanted to play against or with your friends in exciting team-play action? All new to NHL 09 is full separate-console 6 on 6 Online Team Play. (Note: This mode will not work)
* Online Roster Updates
In NHL 09, EA continues to impress with it's intuitive Constant Roster Update engine. Now players can experience the exhilarating fun of having to update their rosters during every menu selection, whether they are offline or online, in between periods and before every faceoff.
