EA Sports has today introduced playable women's teams and full rosters to NHL 22 for the first time, including the International Ice Hockey Federation Women's Teams and World Championship via a new update.

Female ice hockey icons like Team Canada's Marie-Philip Poulin and Natalie Spooner, as well as Team USA’s Hilary Knight and Kendall Coyne-Schofield will all be present and correct across a whole range of modes.

“It has been such a privilege to lace up my digital skates for the very first time in NHL 22, and to get to do so while playing for my country makes it all the more surreal,” said Team Canada captain, Poulin. “Representation matters, and I’m thrilled that every young girl who picks up a controller to play NHL 22 can feel like hockey is a sport for her, too.”

The latest NHL 22 update also adds the IIHF Men's World Championship, with sixteen international men's teams and ten international women's teams, available across Play Now, Online VS, Threes Now, and Shootout modes. You can check out the IIHF Women's Teams in the trailer below.

NHL 22 is available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
