NHL 14 Dynamic Ratings Update 1

Posted October 20th at 12:00am.

The first NHL®14 Dynamic Ratings update has arrived! For the first year in franchise history, player ratings will be adjusted based on real-world NHL performances.

These ratings changes are available to challenge in both the ‘Play Now’ and ‘Online Versus’ modes*.  

Players who are on hot streaks will receive a temporary ratings boost, while players who have been slumping will see a temporary decline in their individual and overall player ratings.  For this first update, we have selected 27 NHL players who have played above or below their start of season expectations. 

Three players have truly stood out from the crowd this week. P.K Subban has continued to build off his Norris Trophy winning campaign, and he is currently averaging more than a point-per-game.  Tomas Hertl, the most talked about player at the moment, made the hockey world take notice with a four-goal performance against the New York Rangers. First overall pick Nathan MacKinnon is looking like he will live up to the hype and is one of the main reasons why the Avalanche are off to an undefeated start.

Make your voice heard. Vote on Facebook for the player who you think receives an ADDITIONAL ratings boost.
