Like goalies (about which I wrote a couple weeks ago) defensive players often get the visibility shaft in team sports. Hockey at the very least gives them the chance to bash attackers face-first against a wall in retaliation. That’s something already.
Today EA Sports released a new trailer of NHL 13, in which Gameplay Producer Ben Ross highlights the changes and improvements to defensive gameplay since the previous installment of the series.
There’s quite a lot to take in despite the relatively short duration, just under four minutes , but the gameplay definitely looks awesome. You can check it out below.
