Normally the yearly iteration of a sports franchise isn’t all that exciting. Gamers expect a roster update and a handful of updates to some of the game modes. Things are a little different with EA’s NHL series this year. Although they couldn’t have been expecting it, there is a new team on the ice now that the Atlanta Thrashers have packed their bags and moved up to Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Winnipeg Jets are giving gamers an excuse to pick up NHL12, and EA Canada has put together a very good game to welcome them.
