Today, EA SPORTS NHL presents the first look at Hockey Ultimate Team in EA SPORTS NHL 17. This year, in the most played mode in EA SPORTS NHL, the team introduces HUT Synergy, an all-new team building system that challenges you to pair player strengths across your whole lineup.
- Player Synergy – Player Synergies, such as Relentless Forecheck, will grant a bonus only to players who share this synergy when activated.
- Team Synergy – Team Synergies, such as One-timer Efficiency, will grant a bonus to ALL players on the team when activated.
- Dynamic Sets – Players will no longer receive mini packs for completing collections but will now earn collectibles, coins, packs and elite items depending on which set you complete.
