NHL 14 Demo Available Now on XBL and PSN

Those who can’t wait until next month to get in on some exclusive video game hockey action can now experience all the slapshots and bone-crushing hits NHL 14 has to offer. EA has today released a demo for the game in North America on both PSN and XBL. It’s also available now on XBL in Europe and will be available on PSN in that region tomorrow. The demo includes “Play Now,” allowing players to jump into the third period of a game as either the Boston Bruins or Chicago Blackhawks (the two teams of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals), NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, featuring a classic rendention of the same match-up, and Hockey Ultimate Team Tournament, allowing players to create a fantasy team.

It’s a robust demo that should easily hold fans over until the game launches on September 10. Check out a trailer of the demo below:

EDIT: The demo may not be available in PSN until the PSN Store updates later today.
