The Hockey Ultimate Team Halloween is back! Ending November 1st at 2pm PT. Bringing with it a brand new Competitive Season, challenges, objectives, packs, a new synergy, two Sets and themed cards! New player items are focused on today’s Heavy Hitters in the NHL.
*This post is presented by EA Sports Game Changers.
Heavy Hitter Synergy
Before getting into the players, we’ll first take a look at the new Heavy Hitter synergy. Players with Heavy Hitter activated will receive a +4 to their Body Checking, Strength and Defensive Awareness stats. The synergy requires 4 points to activate! The Halloween themed cards released have the Heavy Hitter synergy + another synergy.
*Except for Ron Hextall.
As stated before all players have 2 synergies, Heavy Hitter plus an additional synergy.
In the Store there is a free pack for a Loan 90 OVR Dustin Byfuglien. This new loan card works differently from others, where as previous loan cards had a game limit, this loan has a time limit of 48 Hours real time. So from the moment you open the pack you will have 48 hours to use this card for as many games as you want. Once the time limit runs out, there is a set available to reset the time limit. More on that later.
The following players are only obtainable through the Halloween Sets:
- 90 OVR Dustin Byfuglien (HH + BM + BE)
- 86 OVR Evander Kane (HH + BE)*
- 86 OVR Mathew Tkachuk (HH + BM)*

- 84 OVR Tom Wilson (HH + BE)*
