If you're a hockey fan then maybe NHL Game Center is the app for you. The NHL has updated their wide array of applications and this time around Game Center got the BlackBerry treatment it deserved. As noted in the release, the application will come in three flavors.

  • NHL GAMECENTER™ -- a free mobile application that delivers live scores; live in-game stats for every team and player; a real time Ice Tracker™, which is a feature that shows the locations of goals, hits and saves on a virtual hockey rink; game photos; a full-season schedule; NHL standings; NHL player profiles; archived results and stats for the current season; searchable content; and a personalized experience.
  • NHL GAMECENTER PREMIUM -- a premium upgrade from NHL GAMECENTER offering video highlights, condensed games and live game audio in addition to those features found through NHL GameCenter
  • NHL GAMECENTER LIVE™ -- available today on BlackBerry smartphones on the Verizon Wireless Network, this best-in-class mobile application gives subscribers access to live streams of NHL games on their mobile device along with all the content available through NHL GameCenter Premium.

I'm sure many NHL fans will be glad to see this arrive. Shame about Game Center Live being only available on Verizon though. I guess that's what the Game Center free version and upgrade are for though, to make up the difference. You can grab the free version today, the upgrade will cost you $19.99 for the full season. Thanks Jeff!
