Much like in previous installments of the NHL franchise, Synergies will play a pivotal role with regards to how you build your squad in Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT). For those who might be new to HUT, each card has at least one special Synergy in NHL 22. A Synergy is an ability that, when active, positively affects the players and the attributes of the cards that have it. For example, if Evgeni Malkin has the Thief synergy, he will receive all the attribute boosts related to it, should that be active on the squad.

So, what are the Synergies for NHL 22? Let’s take a look.

You will need five points towards a Synergy, in order to activate it. You can check how many points a card adds towards a Synergy via the Player Info screen. Click either the right stick (for Xbox) or the right analog stick (for PlayStation) to check the player info.

One last note on Synergies: for NHL 22, team Synergies have been eliminated. So, if you have an active Synergy, the players who have that particular one on the card will be eligible for an attribute boost.
