NHL Threes trailer delivers NBA Jam style hockey action

Now here’s an inspired idea. EA Sports is giving the NHL a long overdue arcade style bit of fun with NHL Threes.  Check out this trailer of what looks to be the NHL equivalent to NBA Jam. Minus pucks on fire.


I love the amazingly silly, but fun addition of mascots. Ovi could use some help for the Caps.

All the action of NHL Threes will take part in NHL 18, which will be released Sept. 15, 2017.

Here’s some Threes info:

An all-new commentator delivers more humor and fun, and adds to the unique energy and excitement of fast-paced 3-on-3 that keeps the crowd roaring. New broadcast presentation means your goals come with a whole new sizzle.
