NHL 13's initial announcement back in May included a new mode called "NHL Moments Live," and developer EA Canada provided details on it today in a trailer.

NHL Moments Live gives players the opportunity to relive salient moments from NHL history, sometimes asking them to recreate it and other times asking them to rewrite it. NHL 13 offers 26 on-disc Moments: 23 are from the 2011–12 NHL season, and the remaining three feature legendary players from seasons past. EA Canada will update the mode periodically with new classics from the forthcoming NHL season (assuming the league and its players can resolve their labor negotiations); it's unclear whether any or all Moments DLC will be free.

Some of the Moments ask players to complete a team objective, like a late-game comeback, while others require players to focus on one man and make magic happen. One example is Game 3 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators, in which eventual Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist withstood a barrage of 39 shots to lead the Rangers to a 1-0 victory. NHL Moments Live puts you in King Henrik's skates, so if you've never played EA's NHL titles as a goalie, you might want to practice before trying to complete that particular Moment.

Finishing a Moment earns you "pucks," an in-game currency that can be spent on card packs in NHL 13's Hockey Ultimate Team mode. You'll gain more pucks if you play on a higher difficulty setting.

NHL 13 will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 11th in North America. Check out the NHL Moments Live trailer below, along with some screenshots from the mode.
