First Roster Update for NHL 14

Posted October 22nd, 2013 at 10:30 am


Three weeks now into the season and NHL 14 has received its first roster update. In an effort to address a deficiency of the series “Dynamic Ratings” have debuted which should mean more frequent roster updates while also including hot or cold streak player designation. Continue on to check out the list of players who are the first to benefit or be harmed by their performance this season and leave any thoughts on the update in the comments! 

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.
