McFarlane Toys is dropping the puck on our lineup for NHL 8. Following on the heels of NHL 5, the series 8 lineup will be our second hockey line developed exclusively for mass retail in Canada. The demand for hockey product up North is strong enough to support a line released "out-of-season," and so our second "Canada-direct" line was created with specific appeal to the Canuck faithful.
Here is the NHL 8 lineup, due in stores next April:Gary Roberts, Toronto Maple Leafs left wing, #7Al MacInnis, Calgary Flames defenseman, #2Chris Chelios, Montreal Canadiens defenseman, #24Ed Belfour, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender, #20Trevor Linden, Vancouver Canucks center, #16Luc Robitaille, Los Angeles Kings left wing, #20Patrick LaLime, Ottawa Senators goaltender, #40These figures will be available to U.S. fans through the Spawn Store. Look for images of this line as we get closer to the release date. Additionally, we thank our customers everywhere for making the hockey line popular enough to be carried in stores year round.
