Weber and Pacioretty likewise figure among the game's Top 10 defensemen and LWs

It turns out eCarey Price is just as talented between the pipes as the real deal.

For a third consecutive year, the Canadiens star has been rated the top goaltender in Electronic Arts' long-running NHL series.

Or as the developers put it:
Carey Price could possibly be the most valuable player to any team. Price's ability to put his team on his back and carry them through the regular season and playoffs is tough to match. From his positioning to his technique, Carey Price is always in the proper position to make a save and control rebounds. His Angles (93), Rebound Control (93) and Vision (93) rating are top in the league. Price is an excellent puck moving goaltender, boasting a (86) Passing rating.

That sure sounds like the All-Star netminder all right; put down those pixels, peak video game realism may have finally been achieved.

Price (92) is one of only two goaltenders to crack a 90 rating in this year's edition of the game, alongside Washington's Braden Holtby (90).

In addition to the goaltenders, EA has also revealed the game's Top 10 defensemen, as well as forwards -- the latter broken down by position.

Shea Weber (89) ranked seventh overall among his counterparts on the back end, notably rocking a Slap Shot Rating (95) that makes us ponder the possibility of composite thumb sticks.

Up front, Max Pacioretty (87) came in at sixth overall among left wingers thanks to his 4.5-star Shooting, Skating, Puck Skills and Senses abilities, and four consecutive 30-goal seasons.

Conspicuously absent among the ratings reveals, however, are mascot rankings given that NHL 18 will feature the larger-than-life characters in a brand new NHL Threes mode.
