Happy birthday to EHM The Blue Line!

Project NHL 32X v5.0 Beta Released

The first beta version of the 2019/20 NHL 32X Rosters is now available for download HERE. In BKArchitect’s own words: Here’s a little Memorial weekend treat for everybody – a public but still very much BETA release of NHL32X 2019-20 Season. As discussed below with screencaps, it has all the 18-19 season stats in the NHL so prospect and Calder lists for the season will all be accurate. Jack Hughes is on New Jersey, Kakko is NY Rangers but the rest of the 2019 draft is still of course not decided so for now they just fold into the 2020...
