NHL Slapshot is EA Sports' first ice hockey video game on the Nintendo Wii. The game was released on September 7, 2010.[1] It is the first game in the NHL series since NHL 2005 to receive an E rating, mainly because the game does not include fighting.

Game coverEdit

Wayne Gretzky is the game's cover athlete, and also serves as the in-game coach for beginners. This marked the first time that the EA Sports NHL series featured a retired ice hockey player on the cover as well as Wayne Gretzky's first appearance on a cover of a video game since Gretzky NHL 06.[1]

  • Season: Like the regular NHL series, Season mode is available as well. The player chooses from the 30 NHL teams, 30 AHL teams, and 60 CHL teams, and try to win the Stanley Cup by progressing.
  • Mini-games:
    • Free 4 All: Players can take on three friends and try to score the most goals.
    • 2v2 Mini Rink: Players play an NHL game with 2 players on the ice for each team instead of 5.
    • Shooter vs. Goalie: This mode allows a 1-on-1 battle involving two players. The shooter shoots from about the blue line, while the goalie tries to block his shots.
    • Classic Shootout: Like NHL 11, this mode is a regular NHL shootout.
