In addition to the inclusion of creatable female characters in last year’s NHL 12, Electronic Arts has announced that they will be taking the presence of female hockey in the franchise one step further. In a recent post on their blog, the developer announced that two female skaters will appear in the upcoming NHL 13.

Angela Ruggiero, an American defenseman, and Hayley Wickenheiser, a Canadian forward, will join the game’s roster as playable legends. Both women were four-time medalists in the Winter Olympics.

EA also announced that hall of famers Doug Gilmour, Jari Kurri, and Dominik Hasek will be joining the game as playable legends as well.

NHL 13 is being developed by EA Canada and will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 11th, 2012.
