Team of the Week FAQ

Q: How are players selected for the Team of the Week?

A: Players are selected for the Team of the Week based off their performance in the previous Monday-Sunday week.

Q: What players are eligible for the Team of the Week?

A: Any player who has an item in HUT is eligible to be on the Team of the Week. Outside of very special circumstances, if a player receives a special item in the week prior to the Team of the Week, they will also be ineligible for a Team of the Week item. This is to ensure that those items maintain their value, as a player who receives a Player of the Game item has a very high chance of receiving a Team of the Week item. 

This also works in reverse, as a player who is on the Team of the Week is ineligible for a special item to maintain the value of the Team of the Week item because no player can have 2 items live in packs at one time.

Q: What is the structure for the Team of the Week?

A: The NHL 17 Team of the Week is structured in the following way:

Offense:

Line 1: The best offensive performers from the NHL from the past week.
Line 2: The best defensive performers from the NHL from the past week.
Line 3 & Line 4: The best hockey performers from the other in-game leagues from around the world (AHL, ECHL, SHL, Liiga, DEL, Extraliga ledniho hokeje, National League, OHL, QMJHL, and WHL) from the past week.

Defense:

Line 1: The best offensive performers from the NHL from the past week.
Line 2: The best defensive performers from the NHL from the past week.
Line 3: The best performers from other leagues around the world.

Goalies:

Starter: The best NHL goalie from the past week.
Back-up: The best goalie from outside the NHL from the past week.

Q: How are Synergies chosen for the players on the Team of the Week?

A: Synergies are chosen for players to give them additional value and allow them to be used in roles they may not have had otherwise.
