NHL-15

While we are nearing the release of Madden NFL 15 in a few weeks, EA Sports has another couple games scheduled to release only a few weeks after, including NHL 15. The season may not have ended long ago, but gamers are surely ready to get back on the ice once again with the first entry in the series to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Plenty have been wondering who the highest rated players in the game would be and now that question has been answered with the release of the top 50 players in the game by EA Sports.

The top of the list is no real surprise, with Sidney Crosby being the face of the sport for years now. Oddly enough, cover athlete Patrice Bergeron only makes it onto the list at #21, though he was voted in by the fan’s vote.
