EA Sports revealed this week that they are adding uniforms and gear for The Mighty Ducks into NHL 23, along with real-world merch from Adidas. The devs have added iconic gear from the Disney movie, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, as they have included the classic green jerseys from the team, as well as the black Hawks jerseys from their rivals in the championship game. Not only do you have the top gear, they even included special skates that show off the old District-5 hockey team, which is what they were called before Coach Bombay renamed them. To complement the new content, Adidas has released limited-time jerseys and gear to match so you can fly like a duck, or soar like a hawk. We have more info from the announcement blog below.
