NHL 18

EA Sports has released a blog revealing the top 10 NHL 18 centers.

Like the other positions, centers were given an out-of-five star rating by their Puck Skills, Shooting, Skating, Senses, Defense and Physical abilities to get to an overall rating. The top-rated defenseman in NHL 18 is Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid. McDavid also happens to be the game’s cover athlete with an overall rating of 93. Now, we get to take a look at the rest of the centers.
