For the diehard hockey fans, the summer months can be a bit of a roller-coaster ride. While we like umbrella drinks on the patio as much as the next person, time sure does drag on when there isn't a nightly hockey game to keep you occupied.

If you can't wait for the real season to begin, you'll have to settle for the next best thing... NHL 15. With its September 9th release date fast approaching, the developers at EA Canada unveiled another fist-pumping trailer that showed off not only the game play, but also the atmosphere players can expect with its unrivaled in-arena experience.

Although visuals are great, don't expect the realism to end there. With its 12 Player NHL Collision Physics and Real Puck Physics, NHL 15 will feature overhauled game mechanics, as well as a new broadcast team in the form of Mike Emrick, Eddie Olczyk and Ray Ferraro.

Have a look at the trailer for yourself, then be sure to check back often for all the news and strategy you'll need for NHL 15.
