NHL 14 Roster Update Released


Almost a month and a half after release, and three weeks into the NHL regular season, NHL 14 finally has its first roster update of the year. The update includes current, post training camp rosters as well as ratings updates as part of the game’s new “Dynamic Ratings” system.

The new system, which should make for more frequent roster updates, designates cold and hot streak players based on performances in between updates. The full description of the system via EA Sports is as follows:

"If an NHL player has performed exceptionally well over a stretch of games, they may receive a temporary boost to their ratings. But if a player’s performance has been lackluster, you may see their ratings change negatively. Hot and Cold streaks will be initiated based on Points and Goals Scored for Forwards and Defensemen, while Goalies will be measured on Save Percentage."
