What are the rules behind rookie status?

Post by BuffaloHustle » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:14 pm

Does anyone know what exactly the rules are for a player counting as a rookie? As best as I can tell EHM is not following the NHL's rules, no more than 25 games in a season, no more than 6 games in two preceding seasons, playoff games don't count.

This is a bit frustrating as I have been keeping a Calder streak going, and my top "rookie" this year is no longer considered a rookie for reasons that I can't figure out. Does anyone know exactly what rules the game is using?

Conversely, does anyone know if it's possible to edit a save game so that a player is considered a rookie? :P
