With the NHL® Playoffs fast approaching, Hockey Ultimate Team™ is running a special event to get you ready for the stretch run. Starting March 1, the Playoff Predictor Event introduces a series of 90-OVR player items, with one player representing each NHL team. After March 11, the item OVR's will be adjusted based on where the player's team is in the standings. Pick up the player item that features a contending team and watch the OVR shoot through the roof. Below are the full details.
Playoff Predictor Event Overview
From March 1 to 11, Playoff Predictor player items will be released in packs, with one player item representing each NHL team. After March 11, the Playoff Predictor player items will be adjusted every Monday and Friday until the end of the NHL regular season, based on their team's place in the standings. If the player item's team is leading their division on a Monday or Friday, the 90-OVR player item will be updated to become a 93 OVR. If that team happens to be in the Wild Card position those days, the item will become a 98 OVR.
These OVR's will be adjusted every Monday and Friday until the end of the season, when the 90-OVR item will be permanently upgraded to reflect where the team finished (93 for division winner, 98 for Wild Card winner).
Here are the details for the Playoff Predictor sets. Remember, completing these sets will be the only way to acquire the Playoff Predictor items after March 11.
