NHL 09 packshot image
Similar to "road to the show" in the MLB series and "Superstar" in the Madden NFL, be a pro allows the gamer to start off as a player on the 3rd line of an AHL team. This is the only player on the ice that you control in 3rd person perspective. The in-game "performance tracker" will rate the player's play in 3 categories, Position score, Team play and Stats. You will also be able to choose what type of a pro you want to be, these classes include sniper, playmaker, grinder, dangler, power forward, offensive defenseman, defensive defenseman, butterfly goalie and standup goalie. You will also have the choice of playing as an existing player on a current NHL team.
