The lights are on
A lot has been revealed about NHL 13's improvements, but EA Sports and EA Canada aren't done delivering new info in advance of the game's September 11 release.
Today we've got a pair of videos that cover improvements to the title's defensive game and presentation package. The defensive video in particular shows multiple examples of how player-controlled and AI defenses are tougher through better poke-checking, back checking forwards, better positioning, and sticks in passing lanes.
And if that's not good enough of a defense performance, you'll be even more impressed that developer EA Canada managed to get Chris Pronger healthy enough to take the ice again.

NHL 13 comes out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 11.
