This is a promotional vid for a Vancouver-to-New York tour of NHL 2K11, but it gives a good look at the motion control upgrades for this year's game - including a nifty puck-juggling mechanic that is certain to be abused.

Cover athlete Ryan Kesler - you might remember him from the Americans' silver medal performance at the Olympic Winter Games - introduces us to his luxury ride, including a tour of a master bedroom and video that lingers a little too long on that shower. He and the L.A. Kings' Jack Johnson then demonstrate the game, with some well played trashtalk.

NHL 2K11 is a Wii-only title this year as 2K puts its 360 and PS3 versions on a one-year hiatus, to come back in better shape for 2011. 2K's also seen some strong uptake with this version of the game in Canada, This year it'll face competition from NHL Slapshot by EA Sports, which in addition to providing a singleplayer-mode tour of hockey's ranks, from peewees up through the pros, also offers a full-on team simulation. 2K11 adds some casual minigame modes for family audiences or younger players on top of its sim.

Correction: An earlier version of this post said that NHL Slapshot will not offer full team simulation modes. It will. Both games release Sept. 7.
