NHL 22 Franchise Mode and Be a Pro Details Coming on October 4

For those that didn’t already know, NHL 22 Franchise Mode and Be a Pro details will be revealed on October 4. The team shared a couple of brief NHL 22 videos today on scouting, drafting and Be a Pro.

Start your NHL 22 Franchise with the Expansion Draft! Build a new team from the ground up, and you can choose either the Seattle Kraken or add a 33rd team to the league and draft with them. If you choose an existing team, you’ll have to decide which players from your roster that you want to protect from getting selected by the expansion team.

New X-Factor reports in Franchise mode show X-Factors on both pro and amateur scouting reports, adding another layer to the Fog of War system that requires scouting to unlock. Use X-Factor reports to plan and build your team, as these abilities can influence trade value and team management. Maximize line chemistry by utilizing players with different X-Factors that complement each other.

Similarly to World of Chel, in Be A Pro you can earn X-Factor abilities as you progress and upgrade your player. Choose your paths and storyline, then complete long-term challenges to unlock X-Factor abilities.

Live your dream hockey career in new ways with fresh multi-season storylines and challenges. You’ll have more options than ever: take on long-term goals like building a dynasty early in your career like Crosby, or go for consecutive Cups on different teams like Maroon. It’s your story, so write it your way.

Here’s a look at the NHL 22 schedule of events prior to release.

  • September 28 – First Full Gameplay of NHL 22
  • October 4 – Be A Pro and Franchise Mode
  • October 6 – Hockey Ultimate Team

The Standard Edition of NHL 22 releases on October 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. The X-Factor Edition launches 3 days earlier and includes bonus in-game content. The NHL 22 trial arrives for EA Play and Xbox Game Pass on October 7.

  1. I'm looking for customizable season length.
    Would love online franchise to be brought back but I have pretty much given up on that happening.

    Second Video of BAP. Same Stanley Cup celebration and detected also no new likenesses at the Ottawa Team. Even Chabot and many other Players with the same terrible generic faces as the years before.
    So glad they aren’t waiting till the bitter end to show these 2 modes???? Edit-where these questions marks are were supposed to be an eye roll.
    No photos for player cards again. Generic faces for players too. Why can't EA just generate a photo for each player that doesn't have one? Such bullcrap.
    I also like how we have to wait until the very end to see details on these modes. Doesn't bode well if you ask me.
    Quick gameplay from the video looked like last gen. Another year where EA NHL won't see a purchase from me. This has become a trend now. Keep it up EA! Thanks for saving me money.
    Completely agree. There is no reason why a Franchise or Be a Pro guy should pre order this game now. I will do like last year and will buy it a month later in used condition from private.
    They are waiting to show HUT last and that's their money making machine so the whining about when they show stuff is stupid. Franchise mode has actually improved quite a bit recently, especially last year with things likethe  trade deadline and record books. Is it as good as FIFA and NBA 2K? Nope. But IMO, it's way better than Madden.  I just hope the frostbite engine finally makes a difference in the game play and puck physics.
