NHL 22 is fast approaching, and even though the official release is likely at least two months out, we’ve been getting some exciting news in the last couple of weeks. So far, we know that the new Seattle Kraken team will be making its debut. And as of Friday, fans have a limited-time opportunity to participate in the NHL 22 closed technical test.

When does NHL 22 release?
There is no official release date yet, but previous NHL games have been released in September, except NHL 21, which dropped on Tuesday, October 16, 2020. The NHL season officially kicks off on October 12, so we may be looking at a mid-October release date. Again, nothing is confirmed at this point.
We anticipate NHL 22 will also grant early access to players who pre-order it. The company has done similar things for Madden 22 and FIFA 22, allowing early access to pre-order customers three and four days in advance, respectively.
