was confirmed to be joining their ranks. Finally, the trio of Börje Salming, Patrick Roy, and Jeremy Roenick
Today, the final pieces of the Legends puzzle were filled in as Pittsburgh Penguins great, Mario Lemieux, and Red Wings star, Gordie Howe, come in to complete the roster.

Here's a video of the two final additions to the Legends roster in action.
Notice, for authenticity's sake in all likelihood, that Howe is the only one not wearing a helmet throughout the video? It's a nice touch, and isn't weird at all, like seeing Lemieux raise the cup in a Maple Leafs Jersey, but hey, that's what you get when you can put your Legends on any team you please!NHL 12
will be available on September 9th across Europe, and September 13th in North America.
