http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/+sMYTA==.jpgShoot it!
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Record 25 shots in 1 period of play on Superstar Mode
Change the game settings to Superstar difficulty, set the periods to 10 minutes, then every time you cross the blue line, fire a puck in. The shot only counts if it hits the goalie or the post, anything wide or high will not count so try to be accurate.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/+yPg3w==.jpgPenalty Kill special
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal when 2 men down on Pro Mode.
Start up a game with a difficulty setting of Pro using any team vs the Tampa Bay Lightning (they have the worst starting goalie, statistically). Once the game starts slash 2 people quickly to draw 2 quick penalties, then once you are on the Penalty Kill, try to score using whatever methods you are most comfortable with. Longer periods = longer penalty kills so if you are having trouble, increase the length of the periods.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-oELJg==.jpgLast Minute of play
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal in the last minute of play on Superstar Mode
Start up a game with the difficulty set to Superstar, then pick any 2 teams you want and play through the game. Once the 3rd period rolls around, wait until the last minute of regulation, then try to score. Keeping the score 1-0 or 2-0 and giving them the puck in your end with 1:30 left in the game will most likely have a result of them pulling their goalie, giving you an empty net.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-2HztQ==.jpgAHL® upset
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Beat an NHL® team with an AHL® team on Superstar Mode
Start a game with a difficulty of Superstar, then select your team from any of the AHL teams (Hershey and Syracuse are 2 of the top teams), then choose your opponent as any NHL team you think you can beat. Keep the periods short to increase your chances of winning small, or make them longer if you cannot score on them and need more time.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-UD6AA==.jpgElite League upset
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Beat an NHL® team with an Elite League team on Superstar Mode
Set up a game with a difficulty of Superstar, then select your team from any of the "Elitserien" teams (Linkoping HC and Modo are 2 of the top teams), then choose your opponent as any NHL team you tihnk you can beat. Same with the AHL upset, where you try to win by keeping the periods shorter if you can score and want to hold them off, or longer if you ned more time to score.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-KACkw==.jpgPenalty Shot Hero
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal on the penalty shot in Pro Mode
Set up a game with a difficulty of Pro, then try to get a breakaway and get hauled down on it to create a penalty shot. then you must score on the shot. To be considered a penalty shot, you must have a breakaway where you are past their last defender and you should be at least further in the zone than the top of the circles. 2 controllers work for this, so have your friend slash you after you wind up for slapshot. Then have your friend move out of the goal, easy goal for you.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Play an entire game in Superstar Mode without getting a penalty
Set up a game on Superstar difficulty, then change the time to 5 minutes (the shortest you can) and once you get the puck, just sit behind your net so until the chase you down. OR you can just ice the puck every time you touch it. This will take longer but will almost guarantee you no penalties.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-mfuDg==.jpgHe Shoots, He Scores
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal with the Goalie on Superstar Mode
Start a game on Superstar difficulty with any teams you want. Get the puck with your goalie, then pass it to the other team. Now with your second controller, pull the your goalie and skate the puck down the ice to your net. When you are directly in line with the net, tap the RB button to lob pass the puck into the net. Since the goalie from Controller 1's team was the last to touch the puck, it is a goal scored by the goalie, achievement unlocked!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-dkDzw==.jpgPlayers of the game
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Earn all 3 stars in Superstar Mode
Start a game on Superstar difficulty, then play all the way through trying to score as much as possible, getting as many assists as possible, and a shutout. Then your goalie should get a star for a shutout and the 2 other players should get stars for their points. OR just sit behind your net again and take a few shots during the game. This method works but may take a few tries.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/--gKeg==.jpgCreate a Team
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile use a Created Team in a Play Now game
Go to My NHL 08, then Creation zone and then create a player ( or team), then choose either player or goalie. Customize your player, then once you are done put him on any team of your choice. Then go to Play Now and choose the team he is on, or choose the team you created. Play a game on any difficulty to unlock this achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/-hjy6Q==.jpgCreate a Skater
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile use a Created Skater in a Play Now game

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/+HvoNg==.jpgGoalie's nightmare
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score 70 Goals with one player in Dynasty Mode
Start a dynasty on any difficulty with any team you want, then just turn line changes off so your favorite player is out there 100% of the time. Then score 70 goals throughout the season. OR simulate the first month. After the first month, look at your stats to see who is in front on your team with the most goals scored. Then us the Win/Save method only simulate each game individually. If your player scores, save the game and move to the next one. If he does not, then exit the dynasty and load it back up. Keep in mind that there are 82 games and you only need 70 goals, so you can have 12 games where he doesn't score at all. This is fairly simple but if you are struggling try Sydney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins or Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UPlsh3s=.jpgOn a roll
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Win 5 games in a row in the Playoffs in Dynasty Mode
Again in your dynasty, make it to the playoffs then win 5 games in a row. Play them out to ensure you win 5 straight, or use the win/save method to get to 5 straight wins.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UPiMf+g=.jpgRegular Season best
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile have your Team finish the regular season with the best overall record
This achievement is for winning the President's Trophy (finishing the season with the most amount of points/best record if there's a tie). Simulate a dynasty or play through one on any difficulty, and make sure you win most of your games to amass the most amount of pts. You should shoot for 115 points per season ( 2 pts for a win, 1 for overtime loss, 0 for regulation loss). Using the Win/Save method works well here too.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UPqtdl0=.jpgTournament Champs
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Win the EA Sports World Tournament
Go to Game Modes, EA Sports World Tournament, then choose any settings you want for difficulty and time, etc. Either simulate through it using the win/save method, or just play through the tournament and win it to unlock this achievement.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Be on the winning team in an Online Team Play game
Go to xbox live, select quick ranked team game, and win the game. OR go to the lobby for team games with a few friends, challenge each other 2 v 2, then trade off wins.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP7vZTc=.jpgPlaying as a team
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs NHL® 08 Lead Profile win an Online Ranked VS. Game with a friend on the same Xbox 360 console
Sign in a friend on your Xbox, then play a quick ranked match and try to win. OR sign in a second controller on your Xbox, then meet a friend in any lobby, challenge him, and then have him quit after the first few minutes to give you the win, then vice versa.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP8PnaQ=.jpgOT Winner
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Win an Online Ranked Versus Game in Overtime
Play a quick ranked match, keep it tied through regulation, then win during the Overtime period, before the shootout. Having a friend help you makes this much easier.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP0ulBE=.jpgShootout Mastery
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Win an Online Ranked Versus Game in Shootout Overtime
Again play a quick ranked match and keep it tied through regulation, but this time keep it tied through overtime as well. Once it's in the shootout, just win. Having a friend helps too. Have him move out of the goal to let you score, then have him skate behind the goal line to end his shooting chance.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UPzObII=.jpgShorthanded, No Problem
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a Shorthanded Goal in an Online Ranked Versus Game
In a ranked match, slash someone to go on the Penalty kill. Once on the penalty kill, try to score. Having a friend helps with this too. Just make sure to score when you are on the Penalty Kill, NOT the Power Play.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP-peIw=.jpgSeeing lots of rubber
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Record 40 shots or more on goal in an Online Ranked Versus Game
This is fairly straight forward. Play a ranked match online and get 40 shots on net. Every time you cross the Blue line, fire the puck on net keeping in mind that missing high and wide does not count. You have all 3 periods to get 40 shots so that is 13 shots per period. Having a friend help also works. Just get your 40 shots really quick, then let him get his.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP4JgB8=.jpgShutting the door
50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Record a shutout in an Online Ranked Versus Game
Again in a ranked match, keep the opposing team from scoring. You will get this eventually if you play religiously, or you can meet a friend in a lobby, then once the puck drops, one of you stand there in place and let the periods run out. This way will unlock the achievement for both of you.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP+WZGs=.jpgShootout King
25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Play 25 Online Ranked Shootout Games
Go to Xbox live, then select quick ranked shootout. Play this 25 times quickly to unlock this achievement. It does not matter if you win or lose, just that you finish the shootout.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UP52nPg=.jpgOnline all the time
75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Play 50 Online Ranked Versus Games
Again in ranked versus play, just play 50 times to unlock this achievement. Playing the game religiously will unlock this, or you can meet a friend in a lobby, then alternate quitting every other game until you hit 50 played. This does not matter if you win or lose.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/317/UPvUdwE=.jpgBeating tough competition
100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Beat an opponent ranked Online in the Top 50
This is another ludicrous achievement thanks to EA Sports. Unless you owned this game right off the bat, or you are amazing at life, you will struggle with this achievement. The only way to get this is to beat an opponent ranked in the Top 50 on the EA NHL 08 leaderboards. You can invite someone to play a ranked game by selecting their name from the leaderboards and sending an invite. If you are lucky enough to find someone in the Top 50, see if they would be willing to throw a game to help you out. Other than that, this may be another lost achievement as most people will be unwilling to give up their Top 50 status.

EDIT: All achievements can be done with a second controller and with sliders and rules adjustments.


I know there is another achievement guide posted so don't bitch and moan that i created a second one, but i feel this one is more informative and better constructed. Thanks for reading and if you have any additions, please let me know.

Hello, I am trying to get 'Fun of all' achievement where you play with a friend on a Team Play game and every time we put it on 3 v 3 it freezes the hosts Xbox.

When we put it on 2 v 2, we are able to get into a game where the players are standing on the blue line, once that it is over it gives us a message saying, "You have lost connection with other players."

Anyone having the sane problems?

I think it's the servers, as i got booted about 8-9 times in a row. Let's hope we hear something from EA on this matter.

Covert, go to the Beginner's lobby. There is an option to challenge a person and you can select Ranked/Unranked in there. I believe at least, i can't remember how i did it, but i'll check tomorrow evening when i get back on.

I just thought I'd go ahead and let everyone know this about the achievements before you try and get them unfairly.

When you start the game and even goto the 'Select Sides' menu you automatically don't receive the achievement.

I have tried with many achievements and every time I went to the 'Select Sides' menu, it never gave me the achievement I was going after.

But if I played the game and never used that menu I received the achievement.


Just thought people should know, I know it worked on NHL 07, but I guess EA caught on...

For the achievement "playing as a team" can your friend sign in as guest, or does it have to be a gamertag? I have won a quick online ranked match with my buddy signed in as guest, but it didn't unlock? Does anyone know how to do it?

I got mine by playing with a friend online. After I signed in using my xbl account I turned on my second controller, when it appeared on the menu screen (to pick which side to play on) I push the joystick to select the same team I had my xbl account was on. Another screen will pop up asking you to sign into another account or you will play as a guest. Select ok (to play as a guest).

Once the game starts you'll see that the other controller will be labeled and (your screen name) (1). Just finish the game.

Easy points :)

Were you playing with your friend on the same team, or against your friend online? Cuz don't you have to play an online ranked vs match against someone with your friend playing on your 360 on the same team?

I was playing against my friend, he was on the other team. The 'guest' account was on my team.

Does it not have to be an online ranked match? How did you play against your friend ranked? This is where I get confused with the wording of the achievement.

So this is what I do. I play an online ranked vs match against some random person. Then my friend signs in as guest and plays on my team. Then we win the game, but I don't get the achievement. Is this wrong?

You should get the achievement. It doesn't matter who you play against as long as it is a ranked game and you have a second controller on your team. You can play against friends in ranked matches by sending them invites. Go to the leaderboard, then select their name, then invite and chose ranked match. done!

awesome, thanks man. That clears up alot. Thanks also to Turbo, for doing the achievement guide and helping me out. One more question though :P. You know the last achievement, to beat someone online who is in the Top 50. I know I probably won't get that achievement, but I just want to know how to increase your rank. Does it just go by wins, or how you play? I thought it was the skill level of your opponent, but my skill level never seems to change, and its embarrassingly low :P. Just want to get that up a bit. And when I go into the leaderboards, I can't invite anyone to play. Only options are send message, view career, compare stats, and view gamercard. Do you have to add them to your friends then invite them?

Turbo VDuB 44
10-05-2007, 06:15 PM
Ya sorry, if they are on your friends list, then you can invite them. And games and ranks are determined by wins/losses, and what the rank of the person you play against. You will jump significantly if you beat someone high up but move up minimally if you beat someone your rank or lower. Hope that helps

I am trying to get the AHL and Elite League upset achievements, but I can't seem to be able to earn them properly for the life of me. If my friend plays as the NHL team in both scenarios using a second controller, and he lets me win both games, will this unlock those achievements?

Also, does this method also work for the achievement in which you have to record 25 shots on goal in superstar mode?

Now with your second controller, pull the your goalie and skate the puck down the ice to your net. When you are directly in line with the net, tap the RB button to lob pass the puck into the net.

when u start a dynasty u have an option about line changes like minimal or w/e so put it on minimal and they shouldent change, easy way to egt achievment put sidney crosby on all ur lines he should easil;y get 70 goals if not, simulate to the last month, which is april and check how many u have, if u dont play the last remaining games, u should get at least 3 a game

Thanks, it was driving me crazy because I couldn't find it in the options anywhere. I guess I'll start this again.

What's a good way to win the President's Cup without playing the whole season?

I am trying to get the AHL and Elite League upset achievements, but I can't seem to be able to earn them properly for the life of me. If my friend plays as the NHL team in both scenarios using a second controller, and he lets me win both games, will this unlock those achievements?

Also, does this method also work for the achievement in which you have to record 25 shots on goal in superstar mode?


I don't think the AHL and Elite league achievements unlock when playing against someone other then the computer. I've gotten both of mine to unlock with no problem but you have to make sure the setting is on SUPERSTAR mode. This is also the case for the 25 shots in 1 period. Hope that helps!

Actually if you have the second controller set up you can get all three of those achievements but there are a few things to remember. You must start and finish the game without going into the controller selects menu, so you can do whatever you want in the meantime, just dont go there. So just run down the clock once you get ahead. Also I had my second controller logged into another account, but i was told this isnt necessary, make sure though its a local connection because online it will not work

its not that hard to beat a top 50 guys. Ive beat 3 of them. Notice how they all have a cheap move like the (slap pass). There's no way they can beat any of us if they play straight up so if they use any of these moves file a complaint on them for cheating because it is cheating. Or just develop a cheap move of your own :). I beat them without any but some people may need them to succeed

@ B1rks

I don't mean to be a dick and maybe I'm missing something, but if you've beaten someone in the top 50 three times why don't you have that achievement?

This is is the glitchiest pos game ever when it comes to achievements.

I beat an elite team like 3 times no achievement. I got 25 shots in one period on superstar like 4 times now, no achievement, I got my goalie to get credit for a goal like the guide explains, no achievement, I got a penalty shot goal on pro no achievement, I beat a guy in a ranked match with my friend signed in as a guest on my team and no achievement....

Do these people not test games anymore. :|

Managed to unlock everything trough SIM(for dynastie etc) and using 2 controllers for superstars... Sadly im stuck at 550... cause of the online achievements that are now undoable. There is one i could had do more offline but didn't want to bother... at this point 550 or 575... don't care. Honestly i wouldn't even had bothered with this game would i didn't rent it back at release and do 150 Gs on it... annoys me.. arg but i paid it 2$ so well... ;) not like i need personally to up every game at 1000.

I made a mistake back then, i hated 07, but i still rented 08 thinking they would improve there game enough for me to like it... I own 2k7, 2k8, 2k9 and 2k10... did a lot on 2k 7&8 , really liked them... Im not crazy over 2k9 or 10 tough, i guess i liked hockey games when they where simple and fun, not overcomplicated like the EA ones and such.

Anyway, i got NHL 07 for 3$ and 08 for 2$ so in the end i won't loose much, but i still have 07 to boost... arg simulating 10 years of dynasty.. beurk.. but well considering i got the online achievement back then.. guess i could do the 1000 so well... worth it. :woop:

50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Record 25 shots in 1 period of play on Superstar Mode
Change the game settings to Superstar difficulty, set the periods to 10 minutes, then every time you cross the blue line, fire a puck in. The shot only counts if it hits the goalie or the post, anything wide or high will not count so try to be accurate.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal when 2 men down on Pro Mode.
Start up a game with a difficulty setting of Pro using any team vs the Tampa Bay Lightning (they have the worst starting goalie, statistically). Once the game starts slash 2 people quickly to draw 2 quick penalties, then once you are on the Penalty Kill, try to score using whatever methods you are most comfortable with. Longer periods = longer penalty kills so if you are having trouble, increase the length of the periods.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal in the last minute of play on Superstar Mode
Start up a game with the difficulty set to Superstar, then pick any 2 teams you want and play through the game. Once the 3rd period rolls around, wait until the last minute of regulation, then try to score. Keeping the score 1-0 or 2-0 and giving them the puck in your end with 1:30 left in the game will most likely have a result of them pulling their goalie, giving you an empty net.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Beat an NHL® team with an AHL® team on Superstar Mode
Start a game with a difficulty of Superstar, then select your team from any of the AHL teams (Hershey and Syracuse are 2 of the top teams), then choose your opponent as any NHL team you think you can beat. Keep the periods short to increase your chances of winning small, or make them longer if you cannot score on them and need more time.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Beat an NHL® team with an Elite League team on Superstar Mode
Set up a game with a difficulty of Superstar, then select your team from any of the "Elitserien" teams (Linkoping HC and Modo are 2 of the top teams), then choose your opponent as any NHL team you tihnk you can beat. Same with the AHL upset, where you try to win by keeping the periods shorter if you can score and want to hold them off, or longer if you ned more time to score.

25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.jpgAs the lead NHL® 08 Profile Score a goal on the penalty shot in Pro Mode
Set up a game with a difficulty of Pro, then try to get a breakaway and get hauled down on it to create a penalty shot. then you must score on the shot. To be considered a penalty shot, you must have a breakaway where you are past their last defender and you should be at least further in the zone than the top of the circles. 2 controllers work for this, so have your friend slash you after you wind up for slapshot. Then have your friend move out of the goal, easy goal for you.

You could always edit your entire teams roster to all 99s like I did to make scoring a goal on Allstar in the last minute easier...
