On Monday, EA Sports announced further details on what special features are to be included in NHL 16.
For the first time in the game’s history, dating back to NHL ’94, mascots will be featured in their respective home arenas to add to the authenticity of the different atmospheres in buildings across the league.
Most teams’ mascots, if not all, will be included in the game, including our very own Bailey – who is not only a fan-favorite among Kings fans, but one of the most well-known, publicized, and recognizable mascots in the NHL.
The other nine mascots who have been announced to be included in the game are the Florida Panthers’ ‘Stanley C. Panther’, the Minnesota Wild’s ‘Nordy’, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ ‘Iceburgh’, the St. Louis Blues’ ‘Louie’, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s ‘Thunderbug’, the Washington Capitals’ ‘Slapshot’, the Winnipeg Jets’ ‘Moose’, the Montreal Canadiens’ ‘Youppi!’, and the Columbus Blue Jackets’ ‘Stinger’.
