NHL 22 will be releasing this week and fans are excited to see what changes EA has made to the series this year. Let’s check out the NHL 22 release date and time and have a look at the different editions of the game.

For EA Sports, this year has been a mediocre year so far. While Madden fans were not pleased with the little progress of the series this year, FIFA 22 on the other hand brought some well-received new features, especially for the Career Mode.
