What is your favorite NHL video game ever and why?

NHL 14. I'm a huge fan of EASHL and to me it was the most fun and competitive game for it.

Who was your childhood hockey idol and why?

Sidney Crosby. He's one of the best players to ever play and I wanted to be like him growing up.

What is your most memorable hockey moment and why?

When Brent Johnson fought Rick DiPietro, it was my first ever hockey game I went to and seeing goalies go at it is unreal.

My gamertag is rickchel because:

My name is Rick and my favorite game is NHL so I put it together and it stuck with me throughout the years.



My favorite team/player is: Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby

The first hockey video game I ever played was: NHL 07

If I could play EA SPORTS™ NHL® 18 vs. one real-life player, I'd pick: Sidney Crosby

My signature EA SPORTS™ NHL® 18 move is: Behind the back one-hander

My favorite EA SPORTS™ NHL® 18 game mode is: EASHL 6s because there's no AI

One thing people don't usually know about me is: I use to be on a hip-hop dance team when i was younger
