EA SPORTS has revealed the 50 elite players in NHL 22 that will have Superstar X-Factor abilities. New to NHL 22, Superstar X-Factors represent an all-new ability system that unlocks the unique skills of the league’s best players and gives signature traits of today’s stars to the game bringing an exciting layer of class-based competition and strategy. From the Shock and Awe shooting of Auston Matthews to the One Tee one-timer skills of Alexander Ovechkin, Superstar X-Factors are a game-changer system to help make NHL 22 the most realistic hockey gaming experience when it launches on the current generation of consoles on October 15. Here's a detailed list of each ability.

NHL 22 features two tiers of Superstar X-Factor abilities: game-changing Zone abilities and enhanced Superstar abilities. Each player receives one Zone ability that defines them and a secondary set of Superstar abilities. The actual function of any Superstar X-Factor ability always remains the same, but its level of boost changes between Zone or Superstar assignments. Check out the trailer for more insight:
