  • When is the patch coming out? Have in germany still version 1.21
  • Nothing on pass interceptions, increasing goal variety, or anything that'd actually balance out the game more?

    So I just updated NHL 21 with the latest patch today (12-3-2020) that contains the NHL Reverse Retro Uniforms (All 31 teams). Note: The new jerseys are within the roster update, not the patch itself. So, if you're using older custom rosters, you won't see the new jerseys within them. Also, the new Retro Uniforms aren't available for the Alumni Teams (which seems odd).

    Please tell me there is a way to add a transactions menu in BAP. It’s very frustrating not being able to see in full who was traded, who signed where in free agency.

    You can see the new uniforms in your already progressed Franchise mode if you download and use the most updated Online Roster in the main menu before you Continue your Franchise

  • Is it true that you can only see 1st Star highlights only now and not the 2nd and 3rd Star highlights at the end of the game after the latest patch now?

    It's likely very possible. I know that's a big request we've seen from the Be A Pro crowd here on the forums and Answers HQ. We've been relaying that request to the team weekly to get it in their ear. No word on whether it will be added to a future update, but they're very much aware this would be a great quality of life addition to the game.
  • Anyway for the next update or game to add a slider for CPU shot frequency? Would be extremely useful in Franchise mode esp if you can make the CPU opponent either shoot more or less against the HUM? I know there is a setting for Sim stats under Rules, but would like to see a slider in the Gameplay slider section for actual gameplay.

  • Why is manual line changes still not an option in HUT?

    Record Book is still messed.

    I'm in year 4 of a franchise and Fleury's stats page says he has 558 wins. When I go to the record book he has 541.

    Edit: I think I know where the bug is. At the trade deadline in year 3 he was traded to Colorado and picked up 7 wins the rest of the way. At the trade dealing in year 4 he was traded to LA and picked up 10 wins.

    My guess is that the Record Book is not counting stats after a player has been traded mid-season.
