As surreal as moments such as the name reveal, jersey unveil, and the Expansion Draft have been for Vegas hockey fans, the ability to finally play a video game with a team actually from Vegas rather than the stock create-a-team might be the most unbelievable of all.
NHL 18 drops on September 15th and EA just released a video surrounding the Expansion Draft and the game’s updated franchise mode.
The game integrates the actual NHL protection lists and allows gamers to either play with the Golden Knights or create a team and bring them to any other city. The game also has a feature that lets fans of other teams go back and submit different protection lists to see how the draft would have changed.
Back in June EA put out this sweet promo video of T-Mobile Arena as well.
September 15th cannot get here soon enough. Hopefully, by then they’ll realize the Golden Knights wear white gloves, not these bogus black ones in the video.
