NHL20 will be released on September 13 and EA Sports announced another cool, but somewhat incomplete feature in this year’s edition of the game.
The game will have 33 playable Alumni Teams, including the Washington Capitals, Quebec Nordiques, and Hartford Whalers.

You will notice that Capitals players like Dale Hunter, Peter Bondra, and Olie Kolzig are not included on that list.
But you guys, there’s one huge Capitals Legend that is.
Reader Dave was the first to notice Locker’s inclusion after previewing the game early.
Just saw the @Capitals Alumni team roster for @EASPORTSNHL. Flat out embarrassing. pic.twitter.com/7jUAHb3C8d

The Capitals’ alumni team on NHL20 is not based on a certain year, but just a conglomerate of some of the team’s stars including Hall of Famers Mike Gartner and Rod Langway.
Now, all we need is Joe Beninati doing play-by-play and this will be my favorite edition of the game ever.
