Three More Legends Join the NHL 12 Line-Up

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
The amount of spots on NHL 12's Legends roster has dwindled to two as three more legends were revealed by EA.

Yesterday, we brought you news that Steve Yzerman was added to the roster. Joining him will be defenceman Börje Salming, nicknamed "The King", who spent much of his 17-year NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Of course, no legends roster would be complete without a goalie, and the choice will probably not surprise anyone, as Patrick Roy gets the honor.

Another center joins the lineup, as Jeremy Roenick is also given the nod to join the team.

Care to see a little video of Roy and Roenick in action? EA has you covered.


So that's Gretzky, Bourque, Chelios, Yzerman, Salming, Roenick, and Roy. Who do you think will get the last two spots? Do you think all the choices thus far have been deserving?

NHL 12 will skate on to store shelves on September 9th across Europe, and September 13th in North America.

Thanks to all the community members who sent this one in!
