  • Just wanted to say thank you for showing what went into the update.
  • I has started a NHL 18 franchise mode offline and today I saw the update because I don’t USA my PS4 with internet. In my franchise the team I choosed was Buffalo Sabres in classic mode. I don’t have Casey Mittelstadt ’cause he havent been in the game befors the update. So my question: will I get him after I update or must I restart with another franchise? In my team i don’t have any player in first round of the 2017 draft in exchange for Mittelstadt.

    You will neeed to start a new Franchise. Saved files can’t be overwritten with roster updates.
  • Why Wasn't Gallagher raised by alot? And Marchessault only to 86?
  • Roster update should include all real player faces. Scann and add. Sames as pics in there profile. What you do is less work. Everyone can do this kind of roster update by himself in create a player option.
