 Unlock Gloves (20 points)
Earn a pair of 2 slot gloves
 

When you are in your BAP menu, you can unlock upgrades for your player. Highlight each item and you will see what you need to unlock on the right side of your screen - OR - if you want to spend 120 MSP each, you can buy a +2 gloves and +2 skates. A tip for the gloves, you can repeat the exact same two controller process in Shootout Mode as well with either the Swiss Or Swedish league teams. For those that don't know, the Swiss Team is called National League A and the Swedish Team is called Elitserien. It's very fast to do this with either team, as they both only have 12 teams in each league and should only take you 20 minutes tops. Also, it's worth mentioning that you need + 2 gloves and not + 3 gloves.

 
 Unlock Skates (20 points)
Earn a pair of 2 slot skates
 

One of the ways to go about obtaining them faster than playing the 22 games needed in BAP is to play a game with every single NHL team.

You can also buy the skates for 120 MSP on Xbox live. Also, it's worth mentioning that you need + 2 skates and not + 3 skates.
