NHL 18 Roster Update #2

Posted October 19th at 5:00pm.

The next roster update for NHL 18 is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. We have updated the rosters to reflect the current lineups in the National Hockey League (NHL), American Hockey League (AHL), East Coast Hockey League (ECHL), Western Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League (OHL), Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Swiss National League (NLA), Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL), Finnish Elite League (LIIGA), Swedish Hockey League (SHL) and Czech League (EXTRALIGA).

Included will also be a big an update to the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), with 350+ players being added to the league. 

Player Profile: Andrei Svechnikov (RW) | Barrie

Highlighting the new roster update is Andrei Svechnikov, the younger brother of Detroit Red Wings forward Evgeny Svechnikov. At 6’1 and 188 lbs., the right winger was chosen by Barrie with the first pick of the 2017 CHL Import Draft. 


Player Profile: Alexis Lafrenière (LW) | Rimouski

At 6’0 and 179 lbs. there is little question that Alexis will be an elite prospect. He is coming off a historic AAA season last year and has carried over his production into the QMJHL. The 2020 NHL Draft-eligible prospect is already considered a front runner for first overall.
