Brand new to the NHL experience with this year's update is NHL Moments Live. As the trailer above indicates, players will be able to play through some of the most awe-inspiring moments in recent hockey history.

FIFA 12 sported a similar feature. As the season rolled by, the game would sport live updates with brand new scenarios to either replicate or reverse. It made enjoying the game on a weekly basis more rewarding, and it added a new layer of play to an already expansive list.

Bringing that to hockey is every fan's dream. As the season runs its course, there will be insane goals, crazy shutouts and extreme individual performances that are featured heavily on sports shows and blogs. Being able to relive those moments with NHL 13? Yep, sounds good.

That is, of course, if the players aren't locked out due to failing collective bargaining agreement discussions. With no hockey being played, I assume EA Sports will be hard pressed to replicate brand new moments.

NHL 13 will launch for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 11th.
