Project NHL 32X v3.2 Released

Another small update to the NHL 32X series is now available to download HERE. Changes include: Latest transfers, extensions and 2019 contracts including a host of high-profile NCAA signings which will occur in the game in the summer of 2019. I am NOT including end-of-season ATO contracts of NCAA players to the AHL/ECHL. Only future full-time contracts for the 19 season and beyond. Fixed some errors/bugs from v3.1 (Grundstrom to LA, fixed salary bug on high-profile RFA’s like Rantanen, Marner, Point, Aho and Carlo).  Big cleanup of old, retired UFA players…still not quite done but trying to be accurate here....

Versions 0.3.0 and 0.3.1 for Eastside Hockey Manager 1 have now been released. This is the first update for around six months and is a pretty extensive update.
