Will NHL awards honor Leafs, Oilers, Columbus?

Will NHL awards honor Leafs, Oilers, Columbus?”

Electronic Arts today unveiled the first look at EA Sports NHL 18 to hockey fans at the 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft presented by T-Mobile in Las Vegas, and revealed Edmonton Oilers superstar center and Art Ross Trophy victor Connor McDavid as the athlete on the game's cover.

"Representing NHL 18 as the cover athlete is an incredible honour", McDavid said in a statement.

NHL 18 introduces 3-on-3 hockey in two bold new ways. EA also released information on new features coming to the game and a gameplay trailer. The 20-year-old is on pace to become one of, if not the best player in the league for years to come, so it makes sense to showcase him as the leader of the youth movement in the new game. An online beta will be conducted from July 26-Aug.

The NHL also announced the expansion Vegas Golden Knights will play their first ever regular season home game on Tuesday, October 10th vs the Arizona Coyotes.

Additionally, the new Creative Attack controls allow one-handed dekes and back-handed toe-drags, while the Defensive Skill Stick can counter with poke check targeting and controlled stick sweeps. This can be played in local co-op or online against other players, while there's also a campaign mode where you work through a circuit and unlock unspecified, "objective-based" rewards.

The NHL unveiled the home openers for all 31 teams on Wednesday morning and the full schedule will be available at 2 p.m. on Thursday.
