NHL 19

NHL 19 will feature over 200 Legends in this year’s game and most, if not all, will be available in Hockey Ultimate Team. Today, EA announced the first batch of legends that will be available to HUT players on September 14 as 30 of the greatest players in NHL history will be a part of the action.

Who will be available?

EA prominently featured Wayne Gretzky in many of the promos of the game, so it’s not a surprise that he’s included in the first group of iconic players in HUT this year.¬†There will also be many other new players added to this year’s game, such as Howie Morenz, who was arguably the greatest point producer during the 1920’s and 1930’s, prolific goal scorer Mike Gartner, Maple Leafs icon Mats Sundin, and “Super” Mario Lemieux, who will be one of two, along with Gretzky, 99 Overall Legends that will be available in HUT. In addition, some familiar faces will be in¬†Hockey Ultimate Team for another year, such as Pat LaFontaine, Trevor Linden, Mike Modano, and Luc Robitaille.

Here is the full list of the top 30 legends:

  • Wayne Gretzky
  • Mario Lemieux
  • Paul Coffey
  • Howie Morenz
  • Joe Sakic
  • Brett Hull
  • Chris Chelios
  • Jari Kurri
  • Mats Sundin
  • Ted Lindsay
  • Billy Smith
  • Bernie Parent
  • Charlie Conacher
  • Brad Park
  • Dale Hawerchuk
  • Frank Mahovlich
  • Mike Modano
  • Pat LaFontaine
  • Yvan Cournover
  • Al MacInnis
  • Bernard Geoffrion
  • Borje Salming
  • Doug Gilmour
  • John Bucyk
  • Mike Gartner
  • Tim Horton
  • Igor Larionov
  • Luc Robitaille
  • Markus Naslund
  • Trevor Linden

This looks to be a strong start for the NHL franchise as they look to add diversity by adding many different players from different eras. There should be more to come as other legends such as Patrick Roy, Mark Messier, and Jacques Plante have also been announced to be in NHL 19.¬†There’s a good chance they will be in HUT in the near future.
