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).

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. Unfortunately, there is one achievement for winning the playoffs that occur on the 1st of every month but luckily, you get 3 tries at winning the amateur division before getting eliminated.
