For those who are in need of an extra attacker, this is how NHL 24 players can pull the goalie and get the advantage out on the ice.

If you’re running out of time to tie up a game in NHL 24, you would have the option to pull the goaltender out of the net. This will bring an extra skater out on the ice but also means that there won’t be any goalie to keep the puck out of the net.

Because of that, it’s important to choose your spot if you are thinking about pulling the goalie. But, how exactly can the goalie be pulled in NHL 24?

Here’s an overview of how NHL 24 players can pull the goalie.

How can NHL 24 players pull the goaltender?

To pull the goaltender in NHL 24, press LB + View for Xbox, or L1 + Touchpad to get the netminder out of the net and another skater out on the ice.

Ideally, one should only pull the goaltender during the final minute of the game when losing or in an instance where there’s very little time on the clock left in a period and the last second or two will be in the opponent’s end. 

In the instance of the latter, it helps when the last faceoff will be in the offensive zone.
