I know nothing is officially, just hedging my bets and adds a wrinkle to the Rangers for the 18-19 season. People can take it out of the extra config file pretty easily if they want. Same with me having Perfetti traded to Oshawa in the OHL...even though he was drafted by Flint and is a U of M commit. I think Flint will deal him, Oshawa makes sense, and he will report. But not official by any means.

I feel like I can take a few educated guesses in this database since...well...it has 36 (or 32) teams in the NHL to begin with :-D

NHL36 & NHL32 v4.0 Wonderkids List

Thought I'd share some of the names you are going to want to pay attention to and scout in future drafts. Note that this is not a comprehensive list, the cutoff was a bit random. These guys all have high potential ability but that absolutely does not mean they will reach it. Factors such as development progress, opportunities, and mental traits like determination and consistency will play large factors and a lot of these things will vary from game-to-game. I've even seen a guy like Lafreniere "bust" as a 40 point player in the NHL even though he's got high ability and great mental traits baked in. So sometimes, it's simply a matter of luck. That said, here are some names worth watching:

Don't think it's been asked but is there a way to fix the goalie history for the 16-17 season? At least for me it has the OTL/SOL under wins, wins under losses, and losses under OTL/SOL

NHL36 2018-19 IS LIVE

NHL
- Updated all NHL 2018-19 contracts with RFA rights for guys whose contracts have ended per Capfriendly and the rest of the free agents into the UFA pool. Will be upating as the off-season moves along including RFA tenders/non-tenders. Per CapFriendly. Have not updated sliding ELC contracts yet as those are not updated on CapFriendly. Matthews' ELC is fixed.
- Regular season 2017-18 stats histories added so the prospect rankings and Calder candidates will be accurate for the 2018-19 season.
- Playoff stats and league/awards history for 17-18 will be added as the playoffs finish and awards are announced.
- Junior-aged players will retain CHL-rights for possible loans back to junior. In general, the more ready signed junior prospects (Vilardi, etc) and ones who would be considered overage (1998 born) start with their NHL teams while other contracted junior players start on loan back in the CHL.
- Still have some future transfers set in the config for college and European prospects for 2019 and beyond. Some of this is motivated by the fact that there is a bug where NHL-rights will not show up even though they are set in the editor. Examples are Shestyorkin (NYR) and Sorokin (NYI). For some reason the game is not reading their NHL rights but because I have them coming to the NHL after their KHL contracts end, you WILL get to see them on the Rangers and Isles respectively. Same with Gusev and some others.
- Some speculative transfers (Kovalchuk to NY Rangers, Pilut to Buffalo, etc) are included. Will be updated as needed.
- Have not yet updated Cap Penalties; high on priority list. Minimum salary upped to $675,000. Cap set at $80 million fo rnow - actual number unknown as of yet for 18-19 and will be tweaked as needed to produce less stupid AI handling of RFAs.
- Fixed the reversed goalie stats in 2016-17 NHL histories.

AHL
- Updated all AHL 2018-19 contracts. There aren't a ton yet. Cleared out the rest of the rosters into the UFA pool.
- Colorado Eagles are in the AHL, as they have been in the NHL36/32 series since the beginning. Obviously there are some fantasy realignments with extra teams but real teams will have their real AHL affiliates (except for Nashville - because Milwaukee is in the NHL in NHL36).
- A real St. John's team is coming to the ECHL for 18-19, so the AHL St. John's team in this DB has been replaced by Elmira (defunct IRL - was ECHL in this database) for now, along with the previous St. John's affiliations. This is probably temporary until I create a new AHL-level team for the DB. Move your Elmira logos to the AHL if you want to see the logos.

ECHL
- Cleared out all the clubs for now until there is some more useful ECHL contract info for the upcoming season. ECHL rosters also tend to fluxtuate wildly so they've never been a huge concern of mine.
- Maine Mariners were already in the DB but St. John's has been added as well (as the IceCaps until the new brand is revealed). Quad City remains even though they are defunct now to help fill out the league. As with the AHL, it's a fantasy 36 team format but real ECHL affiliates are aligned with their real clubs.
- Maine replaces Greenville as the Rangers' ECHL affiliate in real life and in the DB. Greenville will replace the Maine affiliations that were in the DB until a real affiliation is announced.
- St. John's will be the Leafs' real ECHL affiliate so they have been designated that in these DB's as well. Former ECHL affiliate Orlando will replace the Elmira (moved to AHL) affiliations that were in the DB until a real affiliation is announced. Move your St. John's logos to the ECHL if you want to see the logos.

NCAA
- Completely updated the NCAA. Graduating seniors, signed players, transfers, incoming freshman classes. It's all there. It's literally a thousand moves and additions.
- Note that official incoming freshman classes have, for the most part, not been announced and can change right up until the fall so I will be updating these (as well as future commitments) as the summer rolls on.

USPORTS
- Added in-coming CHL and CJHL alumns. Rosters not completely updated though.

CHL (OHL/WHL/QMJHL)
- Cleared the 1997's out (many signed or go to university).
- 2018 OHL draft class (2002 born) up to 3rd round plus a few extras and rights added.
- Most of the 1st round of the 2018 WHL bantam draft (2003 born) is in there with correct WHL rights.
- 2018 QMJHL draft class (2002 born) is about 20 deep of top prospects - rights will be assigned and additional players added after the draft actually occurs.
- A handful of top 2019 OHL and QMJHL draft prospects (2003 born) added.
- Import rights will be added after 2018 CHL Import Draft.
- Note that many younger players are left on their bantam teams that are undecided between CHL and OHL. Most are guys who are committed to the NCAA but also highly-CHL drafted. This lets there be some flexibility with what happens with them.

OTHER N.A. JUNIORS
- Cleared the 1997's out of the CJHL leagues, USHL, NAHL, NCDC.
- USNTDP 2002 class added (to the extent we know) and a few 2003's added as well.
- Added a lot of USHL rights and transfers including the 2018 USHL Phase 1 and Phase 2 drafts.
- Note that by default, I've kept prospects in Minnesota High School and New England Prep School even if USHL drafted unless it is confirmed they will spend the entire season in the USHL. These kid often split time in a season but high school hockey in Minnesota, for example, is a bigger deal for most.
- All high school and major midget clubs cleaned out of older prospects.

CHAMPIONS HOCKEY LEAGUE
- There is a bug with this in NHL36/32 right now and regardless, the real and proper format is not able to be used so for right now, highly recommended NOT to try and mess with the CHL too much, even though it will automatically appear when you select European leagues.

KHL/VHL/MHL
- KHL updated for 25 teams with Yugra and Lada demoted into the VHL. For the VHL, Sputnik has been demoted to tier 3. Corresponding bumps/declines in club reputations. Novokuznetsk is now Sibir's VHL farm club.
- KHL is NOT FUNCTIONAL RIGHT NOW due to the 25 teams. Need to either build a new schedule template or wait for official one to come out. High on my priority list.
- KHL updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Expiring contracts sent to UFA pool. Included is update of Yugra and Lada even though they are now VHL. Many new, mostly younger players added.
- Includes many speculative (but likely) transfers.
- VHL has been totally cleared out of old contracts...was very out of date. Results in many teams being fairly empty - I will rebuild them in due time but not a priority.
- MHL cleared of 1997 and older players.

SHL/Allsvenskan/SuperElit
- SHL is updated with Timra promoted, Allsvenskan has received Karlskrona demoted from the SHL and VIK Vasteras promoted from Disivion 1 and Troja-Ljunby demoted to Division 1. Corresponding bumps/declines in club reputations.
- SHL and Allsvenskan should be properly playable.
- SHL updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Expiring contracts sent to UFA pool. Included is complete update of newly promoted Timra. Many new, mostly younger players added.
- Includes many speculative (but likely) transfers.
- Allsvenskan will be out-dated aside from Karlskrona. On my to-do list but not high priority.
- SuperElit cleared of 1997 and older players. Most top prospects will be U20 level - there are a few on U18 teams but not a ton since we are talking 2001, 2002 and later born types.

Liiga/Mestis/Jr. A Liiga
- No structural changes, I believe all Liiga and Mestis teams saved their existing levels in relegation.
- Liiga and Mestis should be properly playable.
- Liiga updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Expiring contracts sent to UFA pool. Many new, mostly younger players added.
- Includes many speculative (but likely) transfers.
- Mestis will be out-dated aside from Karlskrona. On my to-do list but not high priority.
- Jr. A Liiga cleared of 1997 and older players. Most top prospects will be U20 level - there are a few on U18 teams but not a ton since we are talking 2001, 2002 and later born types.

CZECH EXTRALIGA
- Extraliga is updated with Karlovy Vary promoted and Dukla Jihlava sent down. Corresponding bumps/declines in club reputations. Looks like WSM Liga (second tier) will be having 15 teams next year as Poruba is promoted but I don't see any of the existing 14 demoted.
- Did also change some official team names up to match current times (for example Aukro Berani Zlin instead of PSG Zlin)...will also be updating some logos for clubs like Zlin at a later point. They might already be updated in dani9's megapack as well.
- Extraliga should be properly playable. WSM Liga is NOT playable with 15 teams until new schedule is made.
- Extraliga updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Note however that unlike the KHL/SHL/Liiga, I have not gone in and added tons of players to make the entire rosters 100% complete.
- Aside from updating contracts of prospects signed on to senior teams and adding top prospects, the junior levels are also not totally updated.

SWISS NLA
- NLA is updated with Rappersil-Jona promoted and Kloten sent down. Corresponding bumps/declines in club reputations.
- NLA should be properly playable.
- NLA updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Note however that unlike the KHL/SHL/Liiga, I have not gone in and added tons of players to make the entire rosters 100% complete.
- Aside from updating contracts of prospects signed on to senior teams and adding top prospects, the junior levels are also not totally updated.

GERMAN DEL (TO DO - DEL is not actually been totally cleaned up for 18-19 yet)
- No structural changes for 18-19.
- DEL should be properly playable.
- DEL updated per EP with 18-19 contracts. Note however that unlike the KHL/SHL/Liiga, I have not gone in and added tons of players to make the entire rosters 100% complete.
- Aside from updating contracts of prospects signed on to senior teams and adding top prospects, the junior levels are also not totally updated.

REST OF WORLD
- NHL36/32 already included major updates for top level players and junior-aged players for most "main division" nations at the WC and WJC (Slovakia, Denmark, Austria, South Korea, France, etc) but updating the complete individual leagues, aside from the top players has not been a priority. I want the France roster at the World Championships to "feel" accurate and I want the Danish roster at the WJC's to also "feel" correct but that's the extent of it for now.
- I am continuously adding top junior players from all countries, including non-traditional, to try and keep things like the WJC's feeling accurate but it is always a work-in-progress.

2018 NHL DRAFT
- Alright this is BIG. The 2018 draft is not yet here but it is basically impossible to play a reaslistic NHL season for 2018-19 without having the draft run. That said, I have created a MASSIVE import file that includes all 7-rounds of the 2018 draft with all 31 real teams. OBVIOUSLY - most of the results are pure speculation. Dahlin to Buffalo is easy. But from there out, nothing is concrete. Did some modest spit-balling for the first round but otherwise, results were a mix of database ratings and available mock draft rankings online.
- YOU MUST USE THE EDITOR AND IMPORT THE DRAFT IMPORT FILE TO HAVE THE RESULTS IN YOUR DATABASE PRIOR TO STARTING A GAME. You also certainly modify the import file to you liking and re-import it to create your OWN 2018 DRAFT RESULTS. Also in the draft import file is a separate TAB listing all the 2018 draft eligible players and current teams which you can use to help do your own draft.
- Traded picks are included in the results (per CapFriendly).
- All this import file does is assign rights - you still have to SIGN Svechnikov, Zadina, etc to entry-level NHL contracts if you are that particular team to ensure they will suit up in the 18-19 season for you. The one exception is Dahlin who I already have on an entry level deal with Buffalo because in testing, the Buffalo GM likes to leave Dahlin in Sweden for 18-19 season and there is ZERO chance of that happening - so he does start with an ELC on Buffalo.
- This import file also means future drafts like 2019 and 2020 will be accurate instead of overflowing with the 2018 draftees.
- Obviously Seattle and the other NHL36 expansion teams miss out on this. Your farm building will begin in the 2019 draft if you are an expansion team.
- Actual draft history is not filled out because there is no point in doing this time-intensive task until the real draft takes place. So while a complete 2018 draft is run, you will not see the picks in 2018 draft history.

EXPANSION DRAFT IMPORT FILE
- For right now, this file is NO LONGER BEING PROVIDED. Reasons are many but mainly two:
1) With contract status up in the air right now for many NHL players, it would be hard to create a protection list for existing teams.
2) With lots of players now UFA's - you should have a reasonable pool of talent to sign from.
- As summer UFA signings start to happen and get updated in future releases of the DB - I will bring back the expansion draft import file and worksheet.

WHAT ABOUT NHL32 WITH JUST SEATTLE?
- Working on it! Based on this DB but because of real-life AHL/ECHL changes, it really causes me to have to redo some of the import setups I had created so that I could maintain both NHL36 and NHL32 out of one database.

NHL36 v5.0 2018-19 Screens:

Updated NHL histories...which reflect 2017-18 season explosions such as those by Colorado's superstar center:
Image

Rangers among teams with big roster transitions from the previous season...prospect rankings reflect 18-19 season:
Image

How will you cobble together your expansion team from available free agents???
Image

Dahlin is of course the next "generational" talent hopeful and gives the Sabres an amazing young core:
Image

Svechnikov not a bad second prize for Carolina!
Image

They both lead the next group of Calder hopefuls (note your Top 10 will vary of course):
Image

Which rookies will make a big impact in 18-19?
Image

Meanwhile, teams like Detroit re-stocked their prospect depth in the 2018 Draft; the Wings had a whopping 11 picks and it shows in their prospect rankings:
Image

In the NCAA, powerhouses like BU reload for the 18-19 season...
Image

...while also getting big-time commitments for years in the future:
Image

Quinton Byfield leads the next generation of CHL stars to junior glory and potential NHL greatness:
Image

With the 2018 Draft complete, all eyes are on an impressive and deep crop of 2019 NHL Draft prospects:

EDIT: Olympic and World Cup years should now be fixed (Olympics should fall in 2022 and World Cup in 2020). Let me know if you have any issues.
