Tuukka Rask earns 92 overall rating in “NHL 15” Rask earns 92 overall rating in “NHL 15”

As the dog days of summer continue, there is very little to talk about outside the hockey world that does not involve PK Subban’s new 8-year, $72 million contract. Well, starting today at least for the next several days, hockey fans can at least debate some video game ratings.

On Monday, EA Sports announced their ratings for the top five goalies for “NHL 15”. And, to no surprise a certain Bruins goalie is amongst the elite.

Fresh off his Vezina Trophy performance in the 2013-14 season, Tuukka Rask earned a 92 overall rating – tied with Carey Price for third among goalies. Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick, who faced off in the Stanley Cup Final a couple of months ago, each earned a 93 rating and the top netminding spot in the virtual world.

Here is the synopsis on Rask from the EA Sports’ website:

Last year’s Vezina trophy winner has now proven himself to be one of the league’s elite goaltenders. He is well balanced, scoring high in Athletic ability and Reflex ratings.

Unfortunately for Rask and the peanut gallery, there is no rating for milk crate tossing. If that were the case, he would have gotten a small boost in his overall rating.

Over the next few days, EA Sports will release their top five ratings for wingers, centers and defensemen. Reigning Selke Trophy winner and “NHL 15” cover athlete Patrice Bergeron, as well as Norris Trophy finalist Zdeno Chara, should both have a pretty high rating for the upcoming game.

“NHL 15” will be released on September 9 on the Playstation 4, XBox One, Playstation 3 and XBox 360.
