NHL 17 Release Date: Developed by EA Canada and published by EA Sports, NHL is an ice hockey video game. NHL 17 is going to be the 26th installment of the NHL series we fans are pretty much geared up for the release. The game is going to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3 and Xbox 360. Hopes are very high for this installment because the last time NHL 16 released to very positive reviews by critic and fans, as compared to NHL 15. In this we are going to discuss our NHL 17 release date, gameplay and more.
EA Sports is considered as one of the best video game makers of the world, and NHL 17 is one of its most important upcoming projects for sure. Ice hockey is very popular among the young lads of across the world, and NHL 17 is gonna be the most exciting ice hockey video game ever in the history of gaming world.
NHL 17 Release Date: When is it coming out?
A lot is expected from the next-installment of NHL and although there’s still for this highly speculated game to come out we speculate the release date of NHL 17 to be September 2016. Last time, the NHL 16 was released on on September 15, 2015 in North America and September 17 and 18 in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. So we think, they repeat the release pattern this year too making the NHL 17 Release date somewhere between mid weeks of September 2016!! .
NHL 17 Gameplay Improvement: What are the things we are expecting?
In the new NHL fans would lime to see a number of enhanced gameplay and features. We’ll take a look at the potential features we can have in the NHL 17. It’ll be great if the board play is revamped where instead of simply having a mechanical tie up button there would be scrums along the boards.
Toning down the aggression of the CPU would be a great idea too. The ability of switching players is necessary. By switching players we mean, instead of toggling between the same two men, switching into the man who is actually into the play. Also passing to a man skating back to the bench is incredible annoying and therefore we’d like to see an indicator whenever a player is heading off the ice.

NHL 17 Cover Prediction: Who Should Be On The Cover?
We don’t know yet. In NHL 16 it was Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, who had won the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals, who were selected to be on the cover. In this upcoming game, we are guessing some among the following players can end up in the cover of the series. Those are – Carey Price, Sidney Crosby, John Tavares, Steven Stamkos, Alex Ovechkin, Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Claude Giroux.
Our best guess is that the amazing goal tender of Montreal Canadiens, Carey Price would definitely make it among the cover players. Back in 2007, he was the top goaltender in the Western Hockey League (WHL) and became the CHL Goaltender of the Year.
