The hockey season may be over, with the L.A. Kings proudly hoisting the Stanley Cup, but the new season is just a few months away, and Electronic Arts is prepping accordingly with the upcoming NHL 13, which will feature a number of refinements and features that hockey fans will purely enjoy.  And now, if you manage to pre-order the game from a number of select retailers, you can snag some extra goodies in the process.

Heading over to Gamestop or EB Games will get you one Gold Hockey Ultimate Team pack per week for 16 weeks, adding to a heck of a lot of collectibles.

If you prefer Best Buy or Future Shop, you’ll receive an in-game Reebok 20K package, which includes gloves, stick, skates and a boost to enhance your Be a Pro or EASHL player.

Amazon has something to offer as well, including in-game BAUER gloves, stick, skates and boost to enhance Be a Pro or EASHL stats for your player.

And if you go directly through EA’s Origin service, you’ll snag an in-game Goalie boost for Be a Pro or EASHL, if that’s the player you’re using.

Lots of initiative, right?  Check out NHL 13 when it launches on September 11th.
