Introduction:
EA Canada introduces their version of the NHL franchise onto the Xbox 360. The game improved the series with more realistic features, such as stick handling and a wide variety of controller schemes. The cover art is of the Washington Capitals’ forward and 2006 Calder Trophy winner Alexander Ovechkin. These achievements, although easy to obtain, will be time consuming for some, depending on skill level.

Step #1:
First, go the Settings and set the game to Rookie Mode, turn the opposing AI to 0 and set yourself to 100 in all categories. Then play the game while keeping in mind the achievements needed. With the other team playing like they don’t know how to skate or shoot, it should become very easy. Do the same thing with Pro Mode, All Star Mode, Superstar Mode.

Note: Using two controllers, get a friend to play as the opposing team to make these achievements a lot easier, except for the ones that say “vs. CPU.”

Step #2:
Next play through the Tournament Mode and set the same settings as you did in Step One. Some more easy achievements. Then go to Shootout Mode and get the achievements there.

Step #3:
These will be the most time consuming achievements to get, so prepare yourself. Go through the Dynasty Mode with all the Settings set as you did in Step One. Play through or simulate 10 seasons of Dynasty Mode to finish off the offline achievements.

Note: Having a friend play as the opposing team will not jeopardize these achievements.

Step #4:
Finally to get the last achievement, simply play an online ranked game and finish it. It does not matter whether you lose or win as long as you finish it. If the other player quits before the game is over then it will not count as a completed game and you will have to do it again.

Note: This is now un-obtainable since the server for this game has been closed.

Conclusion:
Pretty easy achievements to get compared to NHL 08 and 09. Followed the way I have stated and it shouldn’t take you that long except for Dynasty Mode. However, as most people have gone onto NHL 08 and 09, there is virtually no one left in the online lobbies so use this thread to find people.

Passing Wizard25
Have one player get 3 assists in Rookie Mode in a game 

This can be gained in quick play using two controllers.

This one should be very easy to get. First, set up a match, go to settings and then game play. Make sure you turn off ‘Auto Line Change’ which basically means that there will be no substitutions during the game. Once you have done that, go back to the game and select anyone that you want to get the achievement with and keep assisting your scorer. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Hat Trick in Rookie Mode25
Have a player get 3 goals in Rookie Mode in a game 

This can be gained in the same game as the above achievement. Just make sure when you are gaining your 3 assists that they are only going to one person therefore you will get a hat trick. A hat trick is when one scorer, nets 3 goals in the same game. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Powerplay Mastery25
Score 2 goals on the Powerplay with the same player in Pro Mode 

For everyone who doesn't know what a powerplay is, it's when there is one or more less players on the ice for one time compared to the other. For example, if it's five vs. five and someone has a penalty. Then it will be four vs. five. The team that has five people on the ice, is now in a "power play". This also works for three vs five, three vs four, etc.

For this achievement get two controllers and make player 2 slash player one so you will get a penalty. This should put you into a powerplay. You will know you have a Powerplay by looking at the clock. You will see another clock counting down and the word "PP". This will signify that you're in a powerplay. Once that has appeared get 2 goals with the same player during the Powerplay (can be done over 2 Powerplays).

If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Dangerous on the PK25
Score a short handed goal in Pro Mode 

In ice hockey, shorthanded refers to having fewer skaters on the ice during play, as a result of a penalty. Basically to get this achievement use two controllers and player 1 must slash player 2, therefore player 1 gets a penalty and will be at a disadvantage or "shorthanded". Just score whilst you are at the disadvantage for an easy achievement. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Score a goal in All Star Mode25
Score a goal in All Star Mode 

Another easy achievement as it can be done in two player as long as its set to All Star difficulty. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Powerplay Quarterback25
Score a goal on the powerplay with a defenseman in All Star Mode (1) 

This is the same as Powerplay mastery in terms that you go about getting in the same way. Once you have a Powerplay just pass back to a defenseman and score. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Score a goal in Superstar Mode25
Score a goal in Superstar Mode 

See ‘score a goal in All Star Mode.

Hat Trick in Superstar Mode50
Have a player get 3 goals in Superstar Mode 

This is also done easily with two controllers. Set the game to Superstar and auto line changes off. Then get a hat trick with your player of choice. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Shutout in Superstar Mode50
Get a shutout in Superstar Mode 

This can be gained in the same game when you get a hat trick on Superstar. Just make sure that you don’t score a goal with player 2.

Player scores 5 goals50
Score 5 goals in a game with one player 

This is also done easily with two controllers. Create a game with any difficulty and auto line changes off. Then just score 5 goals with any one player. It is also advisable to not go over 5 goals as people have had trouble receiving this achievement if they score more than 5. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’

Victory in Rookie Mode25
Win a game in Rookie Mode vs. the CPU 

This is also done easily with two controllers. Create a game with rookie difficulty and then just finish the game. If you are having trouble scoring past the goal keeper you may find it easier to remove the other teams goal keeper by selecting ‘pull home/away keeper’.

Victory in Pro Mode25

Victory in All Star Mode25

Complete a ranked online game25
Play and Complete an Online ranked game (4) 

Just do as the achievement description states. You MUST finish the entire game, even if the other person quits or you will NOT get the achievement.

Note: This is now un-obtainable since the server for this game has been closed.

Tournament Champion50
Win a tournament with a minimum of 3 games played in All Star mode 

Begin by choosing international tournament. Once in, pick a maximum of 3 games and Canada as your team. Make sure the difficulty is on 'All-Star'. Select horrible teams to play against such as Great Britian and Italy. If you're having difficulty with this, you can adjust the player sliders in your favour.

Shootout Winner25
Win a game in shootout mode 

This can be done with two controllers.

This mode is found on the main menu. Go to Game modes then dodge shoot out and choose any team. Once the game has started, player one should be going first. Move close to the goal, press  and Left/Right on the  on the second controller. This will move the goalie out of the way making it impossible to miss from a close distance.

Shootout Perfection50
Win a shootout 2-0 without taking the third shot in the shootout (3) 

See 'Shootout Winner' but score both shots.

Finish a season in Dynasty Mode™25
Complete a season in Dynasty Mode™ 

The fastest way to get this achievement is by simulating. You do not have to win the cup to get this achievement, just simply finish a season to receive it.

Earn 100 pts in a season50
Your team must earn 100 points in a season in Dynasty Mode™ 

You will get this achievement easily if you pick a good team. You receive two points for winning a game, one point for losing in overtime, and zero points for losing in regulation. There are eighty-two regular season games. If you won every single game, you would end up with one hundred sixty-four points. So, you would need fifty wins to reach your hundred point goal. There are other combinations such as forty wins, ten overtime losses, and thirty-two regulation losses. Just make sure you do the math first. This can also be obtained while you're doing the first Dynasty Mode achievement.

Win the President's Trophy25
Come in first place overall during a season in Dynasty Mode™ 

The President's Trophy is rewarded to the team who has the most points in a season. Remember, two points for winning games, one point for lossing in overtime, and zero for losing in regulation. You will definitely need more then one hundred points to receive the President's Trophy.

Stanley Cup® Champions25
Win the Stanley Cup®. A minimum of 10 games must be played during the playoffs 

Get to the playoffs and play 10 matches properly. It is advised you play on Rookie to make it easy or if you want it even faster, just join the game during the third period and score at least one goal.

Complete Dynasty Mode™50
Complete all 10 years of Dynasty Mode™ (4) 

Simulating is the best way to do this. You cannot be sacked (fired), so even if your team does completely rubbish you can still continue to gain this achievement.
Warning: This achievement can take quite a long time (3 hours or more)

MVP75
Have a player on your team win Most Valuable Player during a season in Dynasty Mode™ 

The MVP is rewarded to the most valuable player obviously. This award generally goes the player with the most points. I received this achievement while playing with Ottawa and I had Spezza score a ton of goals and receive a lot of assists. I had to have around one hundred thirty points or so to beat out the competition. Players like Ilya Kovlachuk, Marian Hossa, Joe Thorton, etc received plenty of points. I recommend that you play with one selected player often to make sure he has enough points to receive this award.

Playoff MVP75
Have a player on your team win the Conn Smythe Trophy as Most Valuable Player during the playoffs 

It will almost always goes to whomever had the most points during the playoffs or in some cases the goaltender because he had a very low goals against average, a high save pecentage and multiple shutouts.

10 game winning streak75
Win 10 games in a row in Dynasty Mode™ 

Win a game by playing or simming and save. If you lose just exit dynasty mode without saving, reload your file and try again until your team wins 10 in a row.
