-Offline: 22 (435g)
-Online: 25 (565g) (HUT requires Xbox Live)

-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 5+ Be A Pro Seasons
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? None
-Does difficulty affect achievements? No
-Glitchy achievements: 1 (see You Are The Champion My Friend)

Introduction:
Abbreviations you should know:
OTP = Online Team Play or Drop In Games
EASHL = EA SPORTS Hockey League or Club Games
HUT = Hockey Ultimate Team
BAP = Be A Pro

Be A Pro:
It will require a minimum of 3 full seasons to unlock all 7 trophy related achievements, plus an additional season(only 4 games) in the CHL to win the Memorial Cup and several more for your Legend. One full season will need to be as a goalie to win the Vezina trophy. You will need another season as a defenseman to win the Norris (you can also try to get all the other trophies in the same season). And a final season as a froward to win the Frank J Selke. You will then need to become a legend. This requires you to complete 250 games and meet several other requirements. I recommend you do this as an offensive defenseman (see guide for details).
There are 16 achievements locked to this mode for 290g:
Legend Player
Raise the Cup
Legendary
Another Direction
Are You Kidding Me?
Playoff Hero
Play Through the Pain
Memorial Cup
Promising Start

7 additional trophy related achievements


Hockey Ultimate Team:
HUT allows you to collect, sell and trade cards to build a better team. If you use the same team name as NHL 12, you will get a puck bonus based on how high your teams overall was in NHL 12.

EASHL:
EA Sports Hockey League games (aka Club games), require a minimum of 2 v 2. You can boost these achievements by challenging a friends club to a 2 v 2 game and working together. The playoffs begin 5 days before the end of each month and if you played 1 regular season game, your team will qualify.
There are 4 achievements locked to this mode for 155g:

Both of these game modes as well as EASHL games will count towards your Online Pro stats.
There are 3 achievements tied to this mode for 100g:
EASHL Rookie
EASHL Pro
EASHL Legend



Ranked Shootout:
Play 1 v 1 in a shootout against another player, alternating between playing goalie and skater in a best of 5 competition (a tie will lead to best of 1 until someone wins).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-kpARk=.jpgHONDA - Superstar For A Moment 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a NHL Moments Live moment on Superstar difficulty

You can knock out 3 achievements in one go here. Select "Red Hot Rangers" and set the difficulty to Superstar. Now all you need to do is score on the penalty shot and you will unlock HONDA - Superstar For A Moment, HONDA - Time To Shine and HONDA - 82 Game Grind.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-sICKw=.jpgHONDA – Second Season 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a playoff NHL Moments Live moment

Select an NHL Moment that occurred during the playoffs. I used "Battle Of The Jersey Turnpike" since all you need to do is score a goal in overtime. Set the difficulty to rookie and it should be easy.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-ro8D8=.jpgHONDA – 82 Game Grind 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-9KG8Y=.jpgHONDA – Time To Shine 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a team based NHL Moments Live moment

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-6q41U=.jpgHONDA – Your Moment Is Now 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a Be A Pro NHL Moments Live moment

I found this easy to do on "Elliott Blanks the Preds". Set the difficulty for Rookie and all you have to do is survive 2 minutes as goalie without allowing the other team to score.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-yL6uA=.jpgWinter Classic 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Complete a Winter Classic Match playing with the New York Rangers versus the Philadelphia Flyers

Simply select Winter Classic from the main menu and make sure the teams are both set to the NY Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. Win or lose, the achievement will pop after the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-+ktUw=.jpgComplete Set 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Collect all player, jersey and logo items for any team in the Collection in Hockey Ultimate Team

As stated, you will need to collect all the cards for a single team. While it may seem easier to collect players from the lesser leagues, they are actually a lot harder to find. Any player that is non-rare (doesnt have the shiny edge) and under 80 overall is hard to find. So the easiest team to collect would probably be Montreal since they don't have any rare *non-rare* cards.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-5ETd8=.jpgChosen One 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Assign a captain to your Hockey Ultimate Team using the Assign Captain item

Simply apply the Assign Captain item to any player on your Hockey Ultimate Team. The captain cards are "Training" cards so you will need to either get one from a pack or try and find one cheap on the auction house. I can't confirm if Alternate Captain cards will unlock this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-1jWdE=.jpgHUT Playoff Winner 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win any Hockey Ultimate Team monthly playoff tournament

The playoffs begin on the 1st of every month and run for 1 week. The entry requirements for Amateur is to be in the top 60% of the monthly HUT leaderboards. You get 3 chances at this tournament, so 1 or 2 loses won't get you eliminated, but you will have to start the tournament over again each time to try and get the 4 wins in a row.

You can only match up against other people that are searching for the same tournament as you, so try to get a couple friends/spare accounts together and come up with a boosting plan.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-yDoUI=.jpgPro Contender 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a Hockey Ultimate Team tournament

You will need to win 4 games in a row (in a selected tournament) in order to win the tournament(online or single player). To make things easy, just select the first single player tournament and play on Rookie difficulty.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-6iqPc=.jpgMad Scientist 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Use the line assistant feature to setup your lines in Hockey Ultimate Team

The line assistant feature will setup your lines with the best possible chemistry based on the cards in your current roster. Simply press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lb.png while on the line-up screen for a free achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-9CUGQ=.jpgChanging Skins 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Change the team of a player by using the Change Team item in Hockey Ultimate Team

Use the change team item to change a selected players team. The change team card is a "Training" card that you can get from packs or buy on the auction house. Apply it to any player you want and now they will have better chemistry with other players from the same team.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-rgu50=.jpgCall In The Ringers 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a GM Connected league game with an OTP partner

Either get a friend to join your team in a GM Connected League or join their team. Then you just need to win 1 game playing together in OTP against either a human controlled team or AI.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-sAQw4=.jpgTactical Advantage 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win a GM Connected league game using your Build Your AI file

From the main menu, go to "My NHL" and select "Build Your AI" and save a setup. Now when you are in a GM Connected League, go to "GM Options" and upload your AI file. You will need to win 1 full game (against human players or AI).


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-oMWAA=.jpgYou Are The Champion My Friend 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Participate in and Win the Stanley Cup game in GM Connected

This achievement seems to be a bit buggy. I did it 3 times, doing different methods each time and it wouldn't unlock. So I would HIGHLY recommend you follow this guide exactly that someone posted on ps3trophies.

Start your own GM Connected League. For settings choose 4 min periods, Rookie difficulty, Game period length of 2 weeks, injuries off, Single Game Knockout playoff series length.

Now Choose your team to be Boston or Vancouver as they have the highest overall star rating and should win on their own easier and more consistently than other teams.

Now start simming the 2 week periods at a time and monitor the standings. Make sure you stay in the top 8 for your conference. If you happen to drop to 10th start playing games to get back into the playoff picture.

Once you make the playoffs manually play all 4 games since you can't redo in GM Connected games and win the stanley cup. You can change the sliders in game to favor you and this will not affect the trophy nor will difficulty settings. After winning the cup the trophy will pop once you exit the game. Note you have to actually play the stanley cup clinching game. I simmed it my first time through and didn't get the trophy so make note you HAVE to play the clinching game.


If for some reason you still don't unlock it, back up your user profile on a memory card or usb drive and then delete it from your hard drive and do it all over again.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-jBsig=.jpgReal Competition 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Play in a GM Connected league of 5 Human GMs

Join a GM Connected League that has at least 4 Human GMs (additional OTP players DO NOT count as GMs). Post in this thread if you are looking for a league.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-gtUbU=.jpgLegend GM 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Achieve Legendary GM Status in Be A GM

NOTE: You can play on rookie mode and set the GM difficulty to rookie mode.
Edit the rosters and take all the best NHL players and put them on one team. Then make sure you set the playoffs to “Single Game Elimination.” Now all you have to do is keep on simulating. You don’t have to worry about trading players, or anything like that. Just try and resign your players if their contract expires and make sure you win the Stanley Cup every season. Soon after your 3rd Stanley Cup season, you should have enough GM points to unlock you legend plaque. Manually save after each playoff game encase you lose.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-kaOAU=.jpgLegend Player 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Play and win any NHL player trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

See all other trophy related achievements for specific details (i.e. MVP or Firewall)…


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-j6wJY=.jpgRaise the Cup 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Play and win the Stanley Cup in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

Before starting a Be A Pro season, edit the rosters to put all the best players on the same team. Now, when starting Be A Pro, select that team to join and the cup will be easy to win. You can play all the games out if you want. But if you just want to get it done quick, simulate a handful of game, then start the next game and score 1 goal and quit out. Now simulate another handful of games, score another point and quit out. Rinse and repeat. This will keep you from being demoted to the 2nd line.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-1YK28=.jpgLegendary 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Retire as a Legend in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

This achievement isn't nearly as bad as passing Wayne Gretzky's point total from last year. You will need to earn your offline legend card and then use the retire feature. This requires you to play 250 games and meet several requirements. The best way to do this is with an Offensive Defenseman because you won't need to worry about getting assists.

Once you get to an A- overall. Simply start up a game, score a goal and then quit out. You will keep an A+ overall throughout your career and by the time you reach the 250 games, the other requirements will be fulfilled. From the Be A Pro menu, go to "My Pro" and select the "Retire" option after you have unlocked your offline Legend Card.

Games Played: 250
Overall Grade: A-
Goals: 170
Plus/minus: 58
Points: 40


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-y40-w=.jpgAnother Direction 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Get traded to another team in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

You can't request a trade in your first Be A Pro season. The coach will basically tell you that a washing machine is worth more than your trade value. So after you play through a season to get some of the other trophies, sign a new contract (preferably the smallest cap hit so you are easier to trade) and simulate to the start of the regular season. You can now request a trade. You will still need to play some games to keep your point production up. I had to make it almost halfway through the season before I finally got traded. The first time I got traded, the achievement didn't unlock so I tried again and it still didn't unlock. I had to start a new Be A Pro, and get traded on that save for the achievement to finally unlock. And if you get demoted to the AHL, then get traded, it doesn't unlock either and that could be one of the causes for the achievement being glitchy.
If the achievement seems glitched, start a brand new Be A Pro career and DO NOT request a trade until the 2nd regular season has started. The achievement should unlock properly now.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-6Z2kk=.jpgTwo-Way Threat 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win the Frank J. Selke Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Frank J. Selke Trophy is awarded to the forward who demonstrates the most skill in the defensive component of the game. I had some issues unlocking this one. I had the highest +/-, takeaways and hits and still wasn't winning it. So here is the method I used and it was relatively quick and easy.

Start a new Be A Pro as a 2 Way Forward Center with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Now play some games and simulate through the season and try to be near the top in takeaways and +/-. Whenever you get XP, try to focus on adding it to Hand Eye, Defensive Awareness, Stick Checking, Shot Blocking and Strength to get them above at least 90. Now hopefully once you finish that season and start the next, the coach will give you a goal of finishing in the top 10 or top 40 in Selke voting. Now you can go into "My Pro" and select "Season Expectations." In the top right, it should say "Top 10 Frank J. Selke Trophy" and a little under that you should see "Current Ranking: 1" that tells you what rank you are in the running for the Selke.

So now that you can see where you stand, SAVE YOUR GAME and simulate the first game of the regular season. Check your rank and if you are in the top 5, SAVE YOUR GAME and simulate the next. Keep doing this until you get to rank 1. Every 5 games, you will need to play a game, but as soon as the puck drops you can quit out. This will keep you from getting demoted. Now its as simple as simulating 1 game at a time and checking your rank after each game. Make sure you keep saving after each successful game. If there is a gap in the schedule where your team doesn't play for 5-6 days, you might drop a couple ranks but you should get it right back. And if you are getting sick of the 1 game at a time strategy, you can always switch to doing 3-5 games at a time and then checking your stats.

There is probably a better method, but this is what worked for me.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-22heU=.jpgKid’s Got Talent 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win the Calder Memorial Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Calder Memorial Trophy is awarded to the rookie of the year. If you win any other trophies during you rookie year, you will no doubt win this trophy.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-xWfXY=.jpgFirewall 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win the James Norris Memorial Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The James Norris Memorial Trophy is awarded to the top defensemen who demonstrates the greatest all-around ability in the position. If you can manage to be in the top 5 in the NHL in scoring and have one of the highest +/- ratings, you should be a lock for this.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-9xaXg=.jpgPuck Puck Goose Egg 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win the Vezina Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the best goalie during the regular season. You will want to have the most wins, highest save %, and lowest GAA to be guaranteed this trophy. This one could be annoying if you don’t enjoy playing as goalie. To start off we are going to edit the rosters. Put all the Legends on the team of your choice (let's use Detroit for example). Now you are going to take all the goalies from your team (Detroit) and swap them out for goalies from the DEL league with 40 or 50 overalls (DO NOT SWAP WITH PLAYERS FROM THE FREE AGENTS). You are going to do the same thing with the goalies from the AHL affiliate (Grand Rapid Griffins). This makes it so you are the "best" goalie in your teams system and you shouldn't get randomly sent down to the AHL.

Now start Be A Pro as a goalie on the team we just modified. In the preseason, play the first period of the first 2 games. This should make you set for the role as starter in the regular season. Once you make it to the regular season, make sure you SAVE THE GAME

My rule while going for this, was to NEVER allow more than 2 goals in a game. So for the first game of the season, start the game and play for about 5 minutes and then quit. The game will autosim the rest of it and if your team won and the other team scored 2 goals or less, then SAVE THE GAME. Now you should be able to sim the next 2-3 games without playing at all. Just do 1 game at a time and if the other team scored more than 2 goals, reload your last save. Make sure you are saving after every successful game. If you haven't played in the past 3 games or so, the coach will tell you he is not giving you as many starts. THIS IS BAD so you are going to need to reload your last save and play that game. The good news is that you don't need play the whole game, just hang around for 5-10 minutes and then quit. Keep doing this process of simulating 1 game at a time and only saving when you have good stats. I would recommend alternating save slots encase you need to fallback on an older one. As long as you have the best GAA and SV%, you should win the Vezina. But you should also shoot for the most wins. This can be a long process but at least you don't have to actually play as goalie.

My stats when I won it.
70GP / 62 Wins / 1 Loss / 1OTL
1.26GAA / 94.91 Sv% / 8 Shutouts

5 goalies had more shutouts than me

Win the Hart Memorial Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Hart Memorial Trophy is awarded to the player judged to be most valuable to his team. You will probably get this trophy if you finish top in scoring, but you will also probably want to be in top in the league for most other categories to make it a guarantee.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-1QYM0=.jpgAre You Kidding Me? 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Hit the post 3 times in 1 game in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

This is a slightly lucky achievement but its not too bad. Make sure the Shot Accuracy slider isn't all the way up (but all other sliders are in your favor). You should be able to easily get 50 shots on net with only 4 minute periods, and you are bound to hit the post multiple times. Just try to take long range shots from just inside the blue line and aim for the corners. Eve to score n if it hits the post and goes in, that will still count towards the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-jyizQ=.jpgPlayoff Hero 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
During the NHL Playoffs, score a goal in OT in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

Once you make it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, just hold the puck and kill time until you get to overtime. Score the game winning goal and the achievement is yours. Adjust the sliders to make this easier.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-kSc6c=.jpgPlay Through the Pain 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Score a goal while injured in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

Some people are having issues with this achievement unlocking and the only thing I can think of is that you must score in the same game that you got injured in. Since you can't just run full speed into the boards this year, your best bet is to turn the injury slider all the way up and then just give the puck to your AI and stand in their way. You are bound to get injured from 1 of the shots eventually. Once you get injured, you will need to try to score before the end of the game. It seems like if you get injured and then score in the next game, it won't count.

Bidz99 found a more consistent method to getting injured.
I turned penalties off and then kept getting in fights and losing intentionally. After about three fights, my guy came back on the ice with a protective shield for his jaw, signifying that he was injured. After this occurred, I scored in the same game and got the achievement.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-szehI=.jpgBest of the Best 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Win the Art Ross Trophy in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Art Ross trophy is awarded to the player that leads the league in scoring at the end of the regular season. Adjust all the sliders in your favor and try to get as many points as you can. Even simulated points will count towards this so you can just score 100 points in the first week and then simulate the rest. You will want to be careful thought because someone on your team might have almost as many points as you (from assists).


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/5-rTgoE=.jpgMemorial Cup 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Play and win the Memorial Cup in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

The Memorial Cup is the CHL equivalent of the Stanley Cup. When starting a new Be A Pro, select NHL Entry Draft. This will start you out in the Memorial Cup Championship and all you will need to do is win 4 games. Score a lot of points and you can also get Promising Start.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/+32O9Q==.jpgPromising Start 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Get drafted 1st overall to an NHL team in Be A Pro with a Created Pro

When starting a new Be A Pro, select NHL Entry Draft. This mode will start you out in the Memorial Cup tournament. All you need to do now is score a ton of points in the 4 games and you should get drafted 1st overall.

Score on a slapshot in Online Ranked Shootout

Simple achievement, might take a couple tries depending on how good the goalie is. My advice is to come in really slow, and try to get the goalie to dive towards you. Now just avoid the dive and slap it into the wide open net. Or you could boost the achievement by going to the Friends Leaderboard, selecting a gamertag and inviting them to a ranked shootout match.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/+Lx-0w==.jpgThat’s Embarrassing 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Score a goal on a goalie who is performing a desperation save in Online Ranked Shootout

Simple achievement that you should get within a couple games. It seems that most people will do at least one desperation save during a shootout. So you just need to put the puck in the net when they do. Or you could boost the achievement by going to the Friends Leaderboard, selecting a gamertag and inviting them to a ranked shootout match.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/-R6UKg==.jpgDesperate Measures 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Score a goal with your goalie pulled

Start up a play now game with 2 controllers. Once the game starts, press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lb.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/back.png on both controllers to pull both teams goalies. Now you just need to score with your account.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/-P5suQ==.jpgOpportunist 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Score on a sprawling goalie

You should easily get this achievement during the course of play. Deking or cross-crease passes are your best bet to get the goalie to try desperation saves.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...7/-t9lDA==.jpgPut It On Net 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Start up a play now game with 2 controllers. Once the game starts, press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/lb.png+http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/back.png on the other controller to pull the other teams goalie. Now you just need to skate full speed into the offensive zone and press up on the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png. Don’t aim with the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/ls.png, it makes it more likely that you will miss the empty net.

As captain or assistant captain, be named one of the 3 stars during EASHL match

Make sure one of the team GMs makes you a captains before playing an EASHL game. Now you just need to be one of the 3 stars. This is usually the 3 players who scored the most points during the game.

Achieve Legend 1 status for your Online Pro

In order the get a better status, you must play EASHL or OTP games and get a certain number of wins, games played, and a certain overall grade. Getting the A- overall is not hard. Just play your position and don't cherry pick and you should be able to get an A+ in Position every game. Playing against human goalies makes is easier to get 2 points per game and get an A+ in stats. Team play is the hardest to keep up, but if you make some good hits, good passes, and don't turn the puck over too much then it should be easy to keep between B- and A-. If you are having a hard time, try playing D. It is much easier to get team play and you only need 1 point to get an A in stats.

Rookie 1 requires 10 games played, 4 wins, C- overall.
Pro 1 requires 25 games played, 10 wins, B+ overall.
Legend 1 requires 150 games played, 75 wins, A- overall.


If you are looking to boost this achievement, its very simple and surprisingly fast. You will need at least 4 people but more won't hurt. Go to Xbox Live > Community > Lobby and have one person create a room (press Y) and make sure to give it a password. Now everyone else can join that room and you won't have to worry about randoms. 1 person is going to play goalie on the losing team, and everyone else will play on the other team. Have one person score a goal and then quit as long as it's after the 18:59 mark. Now just rotate who is playing goalie on the losing team every game and you should be able to knock 100 games in about 5 hours.

Every EASHL Team qualifies for the playoffs as long as they played 1 game during that month. So if your team plays 1 regular season game, then you are automatically qualified for the playoffs that run the last 5 days of each month. Just play 1 playoff game win or lose and the achievement is yours.

While playing as a goalie in a EA SPORTS Hockey League match, make a desperation save in OT

In order to do desperation saves, you will need to press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rb.png and a direction on the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png. This is very hard to get legit since not only do you need to make a desperation save, but it needs to be in overtime. Your best bet is to boost it. Get a group of 4 people together and split up into 2 clubs. Get into the dressing room and have 1 person on each team pick goalie, and the other picks LD or RD. Now challenge the other team, start the game and wait until overtime. Use the D-Pad to turn forechecking down so you can just sit there with the puck and the AI won't bother you. Once overtime starts, have 1 goalie hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rb.png and push one direction on the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/rs.png (DONT LET GO). He will now be laying sideways with the pads stacked. Simply have the human player on the other team come down the ice and shoot low right into the pads (down on the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/misc/ls.png while shooting). You can then try for the other goalie and get 2 people the achievement in 1 game.

Complete 30 EA SPORTS Hockey League regular matches without receiving a DNF or backout penalty

For this, you must play 30 EASHL (not OTP or Drop In) games without quitting, getting disconnected during the game, or backing out at the ready up screens. The games don't need to be consecutive so just keep playing EASHL games. Honestly, this is probably the easiest 105g you will get from an EA NHL game since NHL 07.

You don't need to play an entire season to win the Memorial cup. That's why there's a memorial cup tournament. At least, that was how I got that achievement last year. Just played the tournament at the start of entry draft be a pro.

Nice, good start so far for the game. I'm so pumped!

You dont need to play 30 Consecutive games for the 105point achievement. It says complete 30 games - nothing about 30 in a row.

Have you played the early release and can confirm that? I was just playing it safe and assuming it was 30 in a row.

I got it after my first 30 games, if you back out anytime after leaving the dressing room it counts against you.

That doesn't answer the question. Is it 30 consecutive games? Or is it 30 games total accrued over time, with some intermittent backouts?

I'm not sure about the time limit, but if it's like NHL 12, then you can have the GM kick you out of the club and you won't have to wait. And if you are the only player left and you delete the club, I am pretty sure that didn't make you wait to join another.

azGRIMES 09-12-2012 01:02 AM

I made a video showing how to get 3 achievements. Not sure if it's necessary but I thought I'd throw it in here just in case it helps somebody.

If there is a request a trade option, this will be easy. Otherwise, you will most likely need to just start playing poor until the team decided to get rid of you.

Now I am curious as if I need 3 plays of Be a Pro or 2, because your Roadmap says 3+ for Be a Pro, but the description outlines you will only need 2, one for defense and one for the Goalie. Just seeing if i could get that cleared up, or let me know if I missed something. I don't want to start one as a forward and realise after I could have just gone as defense. Thanks.

Unfortunately you will need 3 playthroughs. I did 1 playthrough as a Defenseman and got 7 achievements. Now all that's left is Selke and Vezina.

Hmm, I am assuming that it must have been because of the AHL, because it seems most logical that this acheivement would require use of the newly added feature, not taunt you with it.

That's what I am hoping. I was just getting really tired so I requested a trade and simulated through like 70% of the season before I got traded. I had gotten put down to the AHL for "calling it in". I will try again after I finish my GM Connected season.

I am playing all today, I will post back here what I find. I just put in for a trade, so hopefully Edmonton will realise my 7Goals a game average is really bad and get rid of me, lol.

So the BAP trophy achievements, for the Norris, Selke, etc.... does the difficulty have to remain on pro? I assume you can sim?

What is the quickest/easiest ways to go about getting something like the Norris if you don't care much about playing D? I just played two games, it took nearly an hour... a whole season for the one achievement will be some grind.

I can confirm that difficulty can be on Rookie. What I did was simulate 4 games, then every 5th game I would sim the first 2 periods and play the 3rd. Finished the year with like 120 points and I won all the trophies except for the vezina and selke. I think it took me about 3 hours to make it through 1 season.

Put all the sliders in your favor, 4 minute periods, and just snipe wrist shots from all over.

What acdougla said pretty much. What I did is went on Rookie, and turned the sliders in my favor, simmed to ten minutes left in the third (4 Minute Periods) and I would take the puck and skate straight up the ice, hold it right then bring it left side (forehand) of the goalie and score. Would grab a minimum of 5 points, and each game took me 5 minutes, give or take a minute, depending on point total. I played around 50-60 games that way, cause I am looking to unlock boost slots as well.

If you set your mind to it, i bet you can finish a season in 2-3 hours easy, make sure you get the point a game average atleast though to garuntee a Norris.

One problem I am having now, is i chose a power forward for my offensive, and his card won't level up because i can't hit with him. He keeps collapsing when he tries to make a big hit. 85strength, 95 bodychecking, and 87 balance with a good 6"4 215lb frame you think would be able to hit, but I cant :(

I haven't managed to get traded yet, so any info on that? All I got from my coach was a comment on how a washing machine is worth more than me, and I recieved a demotion to the third line....

Make sure you are one of the captains before an EASHL game starts. Now you just need to be one of the 3 stars. This is usually the 3 players who scored the most points during the game.

Last point of the night. It may or may not be worth knowing that Your GM has to appoint you captain/Assistant C. I know I am a fool, but I spent 10ish games repeatedly playing as the captain of the pregame lobby area wondering why on earth I couldn't get the achievement. It was only when my GM accidently stumbled across that option that we figured it out.
