With the 2021 NHL season finally here, EA Sports has released the first in-season roster update for NHL 21 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
While EA Sports hasn’t posted a full list of all of the changes, we do know that rookies who have played in an NHL regular season game have been added to team rosters.

This update is music to the ears of players who have been waiting to start their franchise mode until the rookies were added to the game. With the game out for four months, the ability to update and share rosters would’ve given players somewhat accurate rosters by now. It’s something that we’ve put on our EA Sports NHL wishlist for years now, and hopefully EA Sports is actively working on adding the feature.
After all, there’s no reason to not include with when games like Madden NFL, MLB The Show, and NBA 2K all have the ability. We’re at a point where roster sharing should be common place in sports games, and EA Sports NHL needs to jump aboard the train.
