NHL 14 publisher EA Sports has confirmed that a demo of the yearly ice hockey title will drop on PS3 and Xbox 360 next week.

GameInformer reports that the demo will hit both formats on August 20.

It’ll include the standard ‘Play Now’ mode and NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, which see you controlling the Bruins and Blackhawks in the third period.

If you missed EA’s bonkers NHL 94 Anniversary Mode trailer a while back you should check it out here. It reminds us those loud, shouty game ads from the 16-bit era.

The demo also includes a short Hockey Ultimate Team tournament against the Halifax Mooseheads, Grand Rapids Griffins, Bruins, and Blackhawks. If you manage to win you’ll get the tournament you’ll earn yourself some free Hockey Ultimate Team card packs for use in the full game.

NHL launches on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America from September 10, and across Europe on September 13.
