NHL 17 has been officially announced by EA. The game is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. EA did not reveal a release date for NHL 17, but it will probably arrive around the usual September time.

You can vote on which NHL player you want to be on the game’s cover in a three-round competition. The first round is underway now and though May 2, you have the choice between:

  • Joe Pavelski (San Jose Sharks) vs. Anze Kopitar (LA Kings)
  • Aleksander Barkov (Florida Panthers) vs. Jamie Benn (Dallas Stars)
  • Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers) vs. Jakub Voracek (Philadelphia Flyers)
  • Vladimir Tarasenko (St. Louis Blues) vs. Victor Hedman (Tampa Bay Lightning)

The publisher also revealed the first trailer for the game titled “vision”, though it’s mostly made up of live-action footage.

More will be revealed in the summer.
