They can't be in the game until they play their first pro shift. Last year the first update after the season started was on October 17th, so I'm guessing a likely timeframe again this year. That will include Eichel, Hanifin, Larkin, etc.

Would anyone mind checking to see if Derek Roy is on the Caps roster?

He does not appear to be there. On the regular lines, or among scratched players.

I don't get it .. I started a BeAGM already and McDavid is on the Oilers ... how come you need to wait for the roster update for that ??

He is in the Oilers system so the AI called him from the Otters at the start of the season. Once they play a shift in the NHL EA will be legally allowed to add McDavid, Eichel, etc, to the NHL rosters.

I thought Matthews was already in the game before this update? Guess not

I thought they had to play an NHL shift, I guess preseason counts? Is Eichel in there, he did play a preseason game already? If so.. I'm kicking mine off tonight!

It needs to be a regular season game... not preseason.

McDavid is already in the game because he played in the OHL for which EA has the license, he was in NHL 15 too on the Otters and you could draft him after the first year.

Eichel, Hanafin, et all were NCAA players and EA does not have the rights to use them. They will once they play their first regular season game.

Ok thanks.. makes sense. I do remember McDavid going 1st in the draft in my NHL 15 franchise. You think they have him in there now with a fake name (Eichel)?

Really bummed they didn't make a better shareable roster system this year. It would help to alleviate a lot of the issues people have.

After the first week on the NHL season they will have an update....right now teams are still cutting players so rosters in NHL, AHL and the CHL are not what they will be until all the cuts are made.

I'm not waiting. I've just created all of the rookies and prospects who aren't in the game and been slowly editing every player to create a greater separation in speed, acceleration, checking, balance, puck control, endurance and shot accuracy. I'm tweaking everything but those are the biggest areas of adjustment. So far I'm through ANA-EDM, but I'm going to be going back and further adjusting certain traits after play testing a few games. Wish I could share it with you guys once it's done.

Hiya Moose
Im going to do the same , otherwise Im going to be constantly "waiting"
What "formula" are you going to use?
I have tinkered with some; Reducing the following attributes by 10 points on EVERY player:
SPEED
ENDURANCE
PUCK CONTROL
PASSING
ACCELERATION
DISCIPLINE
