Players Evaluate Their NHL 15 Models

ST. LOUIS - It's September, which means EA Sports has released their latest entry in the NHL video game series. NHL 15 hit stores last week and is making it's first appearance on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.



While I'm disappointed that T.J. Oshie didn't win the cover vote this summer, I will admit I'm a big fan of the game. Speaking from my own experience, the gameplay and presentation this year is top notch (I mean, simply having Doc Emerick do the play-by-play takes the game to an entirely new level).

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to take a few screenshots and ask our players to briefly critique the digital versions of themselves. This is what they had to say:




VLADIMIR TARASENKO
"That looks pretty cool. It's not bad. Send me that for my instagram."




ALEXANDER STEEN
"Pretty good. Wrong helmet, but they do have the tinted visor. They've even got a couple scars in there. They did a pretty good job."




ALEX PIETRANGELO
"That's pretty good. I don't have a red beard or goatee, but I can live with that. My shoulders aren't that big, though."




KEVIN SHATTENKIRK
"Woah...I think that's dead accurate."




T.J. OSHIE
"It looks like they can tell the future because I was going to cut my hair (that short) tomorrow. I think they did a pretty good job, though. I almost kinda look like (Nathan) MacKinnon a little bit."




BARRET JACKMAN
"Eh...it's pretty close I guess. As long as they remembered to put me in the game, I'm happy."

 



TARASENKO SCORES
And one more thing - in my game, Tarasenko scored the game-winning goal against the Chicago Blackhawks with just 19.6 seconds left on the clock. Blues fans could get used to a highlight like this one. How about that celebration, Vladi?
