Gameplay improvements

Goalies

There were some incidents when goalie’s would attempt covers through the net which has now been fixed. There has also been a fix for when the AI goalie would dump the puck into the bench and a tuning improvement for how it tracks the puck.

Shooting

There have been a few improvements to the shooting mechanics. These include more variety to deflection location and an improvement to long distance catch and release one timers that were not being treated as good quality shots.

Franchise Mode

An X-Factor filter has been added to the Player search in Franchise Mode to make picking your team that bit easier.

There have also been a few bug fixes in Franchise mode, including an issue where an NHL goalie could be assigned an AHL mask in error. A problem where Career Goals were not updating properly in the record book has also been fixed, and there has been an improvement to line chemistry visibility.

Uniform updates

A number of team uniforms have either been added or updated as part of this November update. This includes the likes of the Los Angeles Kings’ Alternate uniform, Chicago Wolves’ Alternate uniform and the Home, Away and Alternate uniforms for the Providence Bruins and the Kansas City Mavericks.
