From the PlanetXbox360.com featured preview (2012 EA Summer Showcase):
"Last year’s NHL 12 was a real champion on the ice, even without any other games to oppose it. But this year is shaping up to be even better with the forthcoming NHL 13. EA recently invited us down to its Summer Showcase event to give it a go. Right off the bat, players who are used to EA’s series will notice something significantly different within the few seconds of play. No, EA didn’t retweak the controls to the point that they’re broken. Instead, they’ve added a great new feature called True Performance Skating."
