HUT 18 Possible Game Modes Based On Survey

Hey all - just got a survey in my email from EA about various game questions. Part of the survey was potential game modes and additions for NHL 18. I recall a similar thing last year, and wanted to share what was presented. There's some interesting potential additions in there. I should make clear, it didn't say any of these will be in NHL 18 - it was just asking thoughts on which I'd want to see and which were most important, etc..
