Check out our CHEL notes with our October Patch update here.

Opening Night Roster Update

Since every team has played at least one game now, can we expect a roster update later today?

    You’re new here, aren’t you?

    No, all kidding aside, I’d be shocked if a new update came out at all this week. EA is notorious for dragging their feet on things like this. They’ve got their “update every 2-3 weeks” thing going on. Been like this for years.

    This, and obvious legal reasons, such as players not signing a PHPA, is why I always do a fantasy draft out of the box to hold me over, because there will not be an update worth using until after the trade deadline.

    This might seem a little like EA bashing, but they’ve hardly ever proven me wrong as far as their rosters go. It’s VERY rare to see 2 updates within a week of each other.

    I remember last year the opening night rosters came out only a few days after the season has started, which was quite a surprise to me. That's the reason I was asking.

  • If I came off as being facetious, it wasn’t my intention. Just being silly.

    Anyway, you might be right. I’m vaguely aware of an update not long after the season started. But I know I’m right when I said that the only good roster is the one right after the trade deadline. At least that’s how I feel about it.

    Also, I’ve been a member since 2011. EA revamped the forums back in ‘16 and everyone’s join date was reset, but that’s beside the point. We both want a good game with more frequent roster updates. And for $70, that’s what we should get.
  • I think first Roster after the Season started last year was at Oct.14. I expect an update at Thursday this week. But usually @efbomb is right. The updates are very less and coming out all 2 - 3 weeks. Not to compare with Fifa regular quick updates which come out sometimes daily.

    It doesn’t matter because a ton of players will be missing. You won’t get the players who played in the KHL, college, or accurate AHL until mid November. Way too late for those who want to play a full season or franchise. EA can correct this by implementing a simple and long overdue roster share feature but for some unknown reason can’t deliver a feature that has been in other sports games since last gen.

    Yes I know ! You are right, but think this Roster with the guys who need to sign the AHL waiver contract will be more finished at the end of Nov. So for Franchise offline Gamers usually enough to buy this game at the end of November. Roster share will be not enough for me. It will only make sense when the possibility for image and face scan upload is given. I never play with Players without images from the beginning of a Dynasty and most of my Players have face scans. I hate this ugly generic faces where many look like brothers. By the way, I created over 100 missing Players with best faces as possible. A Roster upload from year earlier game would be enough for me.

    @Froommey You made 100 missing players in NHL20? If so you should create a Youtube video and post it!

    I made these Players but unfortunately not registered in Youtube. Could make a big Thread outside of this Forum. Started a Thread in OP Sports about new face scans in 20 with pictures so far. If someone’s interested? Could try to open again one more about created Players with Pics and all facts with face, hair so on ..., but it’s a huge work. Maybe a good idea to do it, so that everyone can add his created Players there.

    Actually, the rosters with the newly-drafted players didn't come until Oct. 11. I loaded up last year's game to confirm that. Went through September's up to Oct. 11 checking for guys like Tkachuk, and Brady didn't get on EA's NHL rosters until Oct. 11, which is this Friday, but I highly doubt EA will release update within even the next week+.
  • If it’s a usual Roster update made without love, images and likeness of the Players it isn’t worth much. So my meaning !
