Just 24 hours after releasing their ratings for the five best goalies in the National Hockey League, EA Sports continued their ratings reveal on Tuesday ranking the top defensemen in the game.

To little surprise, Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is on the list. The 6-foot-9 captain earned a 91 overall rating from the folks at EA joining Tuukka Rask as one of the top rated players on the Black and Gold.

Joining Chara in the top five are Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings (91), Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild (92), reigning Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks (92) and Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators (93). Fresh off his new 8-year, $72 million contract, Montreal Canadiens defenseman PK Subban, who fell to Patrice Bergeron in the cover athlete vote, is surprisingly not in the top five.

Here is the synopsis of Chara from the NHL 15 website:

“Summary: The 6’9 Chara is an intimidating force every time he steps on the ice. With 5 star Defense and Physicality – he isn’t the type of player you want to battle with in the corner with. His (95) Shot Power also makes him one of the leagues deadliest shooters from the point.”

EA is expected to release ratings for wingers and centers in the coming week. It will be interesting to see if Bergeron, the cover athlete and reigning Selke Trophy winner, will be among the top five centers when those ratings are revealed.

“NHL 15″ will be released on September 9 on the Playstation 4, XBox One, Playstation 3 and XBox 360, and is available for pre-order at major retail websites.
