The Mighty Ducks' 30th anniversary is commemorated in NHL 23 with a nod to the film
Following FIFA 23's massive crossover with Ted Lasso and that franchise's fan-favorite characters, EA Sports and NHL 23 will honor the 30-year-old film The Mighty Ducks with a variety of things in the game's Ultimate Team and World of Chel modes.
Fans will find sweaters and skates for both The Mighty Ducks and their movie opponents, the Hawks, in both World of Chel and Hockey Ultimate Team. This update is titled "Fly Together." The cosmetic products are available for free from Tuesday until January 2, 2023.
This will be augmented by an Icon Choice Pack in HUT featuring six hockey stars who played for the Anaheim franchise of the National Hockey League from 1993 to 2006.
Unfortunately, neither coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) nor any of his players from the cult-classic sports film are present in the game, despite the hockey sweaters for both sides are exact replicas. The Mighty Ducks, which debuted on October 2, 1992, is about a self-centered, conceited lawyer (Bombay) who is sentenced to community service for drunk driving and becomes the head coach of a minor hockey team. The underdog squad unites, Bombay vanquishes his own personal hockey demons, and everyone ultimately wins the big game.
Estevez reprised his original starring role in 2021's The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers on Disney Plus, which marked the return of the franchise. Disney also owned the Anaheim team when the MLB opted to expand at the conclusion of the 1992 season. In a cross-promotional move that raised eyebrows, the firm named the new club The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (representing the company's civic commitment to placing Anaheim on the map as well).
Simply renamed the "Anaheim Ducks" for the 2006-2007 season, the team advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time and won its first championship under the leadership of Teemu Selanne and Scott Neidermeyer, both of whom are featured in the Icon Choice Pack.
NHL 23 was released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on October 14. If you want NHL 23 coins just come and buy!
