NHL 17 - HUT Movember

Posted November 23rd at 12:00am.

Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) Movember - Week 4 Update

Movember is back! EA SPORTS and NHL 17 are proud to continue creating awareness for this awesome global charity aimed at raising awareness to combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health challenges.

While people around the world will be proudly sporting their Mo’s in support of the cause, we’ll be helping spread the word by integrating a special Movember collection into Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) game mode once again.  This year, there will be a limited time Movember Set on top of the Movember player items you can find in packs!

Movember Set

From November 1st to December 1st, you can complete Movember Sets using limited time Movember Collectibles found in special Movember packs. In the Movember Set, there will be Movember player items that you can earn through trading in Movember Collectibles found in special Movember packs along with Gold and Carbon Collectibles. 

Novice Set

Every week you will be able to trade in one Movember Collectible for a random Gold Rare Player.

Epic Set

Each week there will be new Movember player item sets featuring different players. Like previous Limited Time Sets, these Epic Sets will reward you with a special Movember player item and a Master Collectible. Remember, the Epic Sets are only available for the week they are announced!

Master Set (NOW AVAILABLE)

The Movember Master Set is none other than Sidney Crosby. In order to unlock Crosby's Movember player item, you will need 4 Movember Master Collectibles, 6 Movember Master Collectibles, and 10 Carbon Collectibles!

There are also two Movember Epic Player Item Sets this week. They are:

  • Movember Aaron Ekblad, Auston Matthews, Connor McDavid and a Movember Master Collectible = ANY 6 Movember Collectibles + 4 Carbon Collectibles
  • Movember Alex Ovechkin and a Movember Master Collectible = ANY 6 Movember Collectibles + 10 Carbon Collectibles

Remember, these player sets are ONLY available for a week.

The players that are featured in the Movember Player Item Sets will have their base gold item in packs.

Like previous years, NHL 17 will release special edition Movember items on every Tuesday that are available for the next seven days. You can find these Movember items in limited Movember packs and regular Gold Packs!

Not only will these items help create Movember awareness, but they also represent the only HUT items on the market that will continue to upgrade and evolve every time that player receives an in-game HUT rating boost!

For more information about Movember items and our involvement with the cause, check out the Q&A below for answers to the most commonly asked questions. 

Q: What makes these items so special?

A: These items have a chance to have their ratings increase throughout the year. Every time a Movember player receives an inform item later in the year, their Movember item will also be upgraded to match.

Q: What if a player is released later in the year with a 99 overall rating and he has a Movember item? Will that item go to 99 overall?

A: Yes, that player would have a 99 overall Movember item.

Q: How does Synergy work for Movembers items?

A: The synergies on the Movember player items will not change throughout the year.

Q: What does this have to do with Movember? What are you doing to support the cause? How does this relate to it?

A: We're proud to support the Movember cause, by raising awareness for this awesome global charity aimed at raising funds to combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health challenges. EA SPORTS is also donating towards the Movember Foundation to improve mental health and reduce the rate of male suicide.

Q: Why are some players boosted, and some aren't?

A: Movember players that already have inform items were upgraded to match their highest overall HUT item already. Other items will have their base overall rating until they receive an upgrade.

Q: Why should I care about a player who is not boosted? What is the point of releasing a non-boosted Item? Why not just wait until he has a boost?

A: These items are like an investment, if your Movember player gets an upgrade then your item will also be upgraded. If you think a player is going to have a huge year now is the perfect time to go and get that item and watch it increase in power and value. There is also no chance that the rating will decrease.
