LEAVE YOUR MARK, BUILD YOUR LEGACY
UPDATED FOR 2021-22!

The fans are back in the stands, and we have fully-updated rosters, teams, leagues, and stats for the 21-22 season.

REALISTIC HISTORICAL BACKGROUND.

Junior, College, and European leagues in historical games have been significantly fleshed out, so young players will no longer just be free agents before they’re signed or drafted, and the Sponsorship/Affiliate system that was used by the NHL up until the 1960’s is now simulated as well.

BUILD YOUTH SYSTEMS

European teams will now be able to take steps to improve the quality of the young players entering their youth systems.

ADJUSTABLE TRADE DIFFICULTY

Trading difficulty can now be adjusted, allowing for easier or more difficult trade negotiations – or nearly impossible ones!

MORE POSTGAME FEEDBACK!

A new postgame analysis screen points out the good, the bad, and the ugly of both teams’ performances.

IMPROVED 2D MODE

The 2D game system has undergone many changes to improve player behaviour, animation, and statistical output, and received some new graphics and animations.

WATCH HIGHLIGHTS!

2D Mode now has a “highlights” option that’ll allow you to view only the game’s key moments, or just the goals.

NEW CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS!

Custom games can now add tournaments that allow the participation of teams from multiple leagues, and can add new leagues after the game has started.

YOUR OWN NOTEPAD

Players now have a user-editable “Notes” view that can be used to record your own notes, reminders, etc. regarding them.

HOCKEY CARDS!

We’ve added a new “hockey card” style for displaying player portraits on some screens.

AND MUCH MORE!
