I picked up NHL 09 on Wednesday. So far I am loving the game.
I jumped right into the Be-a-Pro mode by creating myself as a quick-skating sniper (much like real life). I joined the Bruins organization due to being a fan and the team’s lack of forwards.
After just two games down in Providence (their AHL franchise) I got the call up to the NHL. Injuries and a trade opened up a few rosters spots and gave me a chance to show my stuff in the NHL. In nine NHL games so far, I have six goals and four assists.
Here are some videos from replays of the first few games I played. (This is a great feature in NHL 09).
A great hit from my first game in the NHL.
Here is a goal I scored after I missed the net with a shot and took a hit.
Here is a bit of give-and-go passing.
I am really impressed with the game so far and will be posting more videos from time to time.
