One of the most-requested features among players in the NHL video game community is finally becoming a reality. 

EA Sports announced on Wednesday afternoon that roster sharing will soon be available in NHL 22, officially hitting platforms on December 9th and finally giving players a concrete release date after teasing them upon the game's launch earlier this year. 

Roster sharing is a game-changing feature that is set to benefit the game's online player base immensely. Players will be able to create their own rosters filled with their favourite players, with the ability to edit their overall ratings and X-Factors, and then upload them to be shared amongst the community. 

This development is a particularly timely one on EA's part. 

With the World Junior Championship set to kick off on Boxing Day, this new roster sharing feature will allow players to play as the different teams taking part in the tournament as it is happening. 

After a rocky launch, NHL 22 gamers can rejoice.
