NHL 12 Net Battles Video Encourages Hassling Smaller Players

This latest NHL 12 trailer really does send out the wrong message, implying that it's just fine and dandy to push people smaller than you out of the way. Not really... What it does show is how the game's net battles work in NHL 12 and how they've been improved over NHL 11.
Previously, the size and weight of players wasn't taken into account during a tussle in front of the net in NHL 11, but for NHL 12, a weight advantage will be exactly that: an advantage, enabling you to shove smaller players out of the way or bully them into submission.
Check out the latest trailer to see how the net battles have changed, then prepare to take to the ice when NHL 12 launches on September 9th in Europe and September 13th in North America.
