A huge impact. I'm not sure why this site has never tracked Canadian/NA sales beyond the US. NHL up here is probably the biggest release of the year up here. I'd compare it to FIFA in Europe. Wouldn't surprise me if it sold close to a million copies week 1 in Canada

Yeah, it would be fairly big. We get the bundles every year too. There has been an NHL PS4 bundle for the last 3 years at least.
