The 2018-19 NHL season is just around the corner: we’re so very excited to be able to watch the best hockey in the world. With the NHL season nigh, the cataclysmic Karlsson trade kicked us in the pants to go do a NHL Roster update.
We’ve used the amnesiac roster build (for NHL09) and converted their numbers to work with UHS. Players not found in the amnesiac roster were removed, however, they could potentially be added at a later date depending on how the season plays out. One issue with the amnesiac roster is player height-weights are all normalized for optimal NHL09 game-play. Since Height-Weight does play a factor in UHS, I’ve only manually updated NEW players’ height-weight; players already existing from last season will not change.
If you notice any issue with the NHL players, please let us know. We can make a change to the NHL template but to date we do not have a method to update individual leagues that opted to use the NHL template: you will need to import the NHL player(s).
We’ll be looking at making weekly updates to the roster until the regular season starts at which point updates will be done daily.
If you are interested in donating your time to keep our rosters up to date with age, height, weight, and (more importantly) UHS skills/characteristics, please reach out to us.
