NHL 18 and the return of hockey (THANK GOD) are nearly upon us. EA’s annual offering this year focuses on the league’s young stars, as represented on the cover by the Edmonton Oiler’s star Connor McDavid. Also new in the NHL this year and emphasized in franchise mode is the league’s 31st team, the Vegas Golden Knights: the first professional sports team to play in Las Vegas (though the soon-to-be formerly Oakland Raiders are close behind). Of all the annual sports offerings, I think EA does the best job with the NHL, so it’ll be interesting to see what they have under the hood this year when NHL 18 skates into stores on September 15, 2017. Full achievement list below courtesy of the Intertubes finest achievement site: xboxachievements.com.
