amnesiac's roster 2019-20

These are highly accurate up to date rosters and player attributes for NHL09 on PC. They are updated for Updated for NHL teams only (as well as the top National Teams: CAN, USA, RUS, SWE, CZE, FIN, SVK, (EUR, NA). The AHL, Euro, and KHL teams are not updated. Personally, I have no interest in updating these.... Roster is updated regularly, see version for most recent updates.

Team lines are done by myself and may not be accurate to date, as they get changed too often in real life.... Players' salaries are not updated, as the league cap cannot be changed.

The height and weight for 95% of the NHL players has been adjusted to 6'1, 205 lbs. The reason for this is because tall and heavy players are too slow, while short and light players are too fast in the game. This way Im able to adjust the players' speed and acceleration relative to each other without having to guess, as speed is the most important/dominant attribute in the game. That being said, I do slightly adjust the extreme tall players to have some noticeable appearance in the game (ie. 6'4 players are put to 6'2, 6'5 to 6'3, etc). All in all its barely noticeable, and it makes the game more fair, in my opinion. No I will not change them back.

Created teams:

- Vegas Golden Knights (Eastern All-Stars)

Vegas ice (rename ICE_230.fsh to ICE_030.fsh)

Vegas logos

Vegas jerseys

- Team Europe (Team Japan) from the 2016 WCH (players such as: Hossa, Kopitar, Halak, Chara, Josi...).

- Team NA (23 and under) (Team Kazakhstan) from the 2016 WCH (players such as: McDavid, MacKinnon, Gaudreau, Eichel, Ekblad...).

- Additional NHL "All-Star teams". Apart from actual 2018 All-Star teams (Western and North America), Ive created 3 pairs of the best possible teams from East and West under: All-Star A East and West, All-Star B, and All-Star C.

- Battle of Canada tournament. 3 teams: Team West (BC, AB, SK, MB), Team Ontario, and Team East (QC and Maritimes).

- "All-Time Legends" teams, including players such as: Gretzky, Orr, Lemieux, Roy, Plante, Lafleur, Richard, Bossy to name a few. The 2 teams are Team Gretzky and Team Orr. See below for facepack and cybers (credit to Turbo 6, Slomo76, Jo-Naz, heninsh).

- "Young Gun Teams" consisting of current NHLers and prospects born in 1994 or later. The 2 teams are under the Colorado Eagles and Mississippi Riverkings.

You will find all 11 of these teams in the Amnesiac's All-Stars league. Hope you like them.

  • Thanks for the roster update...I installed it & it works fine. The roster updates are what keep NHL09 fresh & fun to play...thanks again for all your fine work!

  • Thanks for your work!

  • Hey there is an issue where the soundtrack won't play in the menu when I apply your update. Do you have any fixes?

    • audio has nothing to do with my roster files... ask in the forums

  • Thank you, as always.

    Just FYI Kulak in Montreal is a lefty, not a righty.

  • Thank you Amnesiac for this updated roster.

  • Thank you for your work...Amnesiac.

    • ask in the forums.... everything should work fine

    • oops, ignore that... and thanks

  • Hey I followed the instructions and installed all the additional files recommended but Vegas has the Eastern All Stars logo, jerseys, and their ice is messed up. Is there anything known to cause this or anything I'm missing when installing it?

    • ask in the forums.... everything should work fine

  • sorry to bother guys im p new and im not sure if this is right place to ask but are there any graphic enchancement mods as well as eu roster updates?

  • No idea why, but i can't get past the loading screen anymore. It worked before but started to not randomly yesterday

  • Hi amnesiac, I play alot of International games. Could you put goalies on France and Switzerland at your next update so the games run properly. I allways have to add them after every update. Thanks

  • Hi, good roster as always... just one thng. Washington has only 1 goalkeeper, so I have problems with that in season :).

    • And I've got a question. Is it possible to change rosters during a season, or I have to complete season with rosters I started with?

    • yes I noticed, will update soon.... As for the season roster, I dont think its possible. Best to ask in the forums.

    • Ty for reply, love you and your rosters <3

  • Hi I am really new to this. I love the updated roster. CAn someone point me to where I can find the updated mod that has the stadiums , teams, uniforms, ice rinks for nhl 09 pc?

  • I wanted to ask for the reason why all of the players had such low ratings. Compared to nhl 18 the overalls of the teams are like -4, -5 overall. For example in nhl 18 karlson has a rating of 91, but in your roster hes barely like an 86 or something like that. There are like two defensemen who are 85+ so this really makes the nhl seem like all the defensemen suck. Is there a real reason behind making the players have low ratings? Is it because making the players have higher ratings would make them glitchy or OP or what?

    • its how theyve always been, but its all relative anyways. Whats the difference? Theyre just numbers.

    • Overall isnt the best way to judge theyre skill anyway. Less important categories like: Agression, hitting, fighting, faceoffs, potential, hero rating, prestige all factor in the overall rating.

      Speed is what I base their "rank" on, and I play around that.

  • Hey, Im kinda new here, so pardon me if this is a stupid question, but whenever I select to play dynasty mode and do a fantasy draft, right after the draft ends and I press begin season by game crashes. This doesnt happen if I dont do the fantasy draft and just play with regular roster. Moreover, my game crashes the same when I tried to be a pro and after I created my player the game crashed. How do I fix this and is it even possible?

    • no idea, sorry. You can ask in the forums maybe

  • Amnesiac no offense but I cant find Dallas Stars - Gemel Smith in your roster. Could my install of roster be messed up. Does anyone know if gemel smith is in the game?

    • Also Texas Stars - Dillon Heatherington and San Jose Sharks - Brendan Dillion. Again I'm not complaning just noticed.

    • Smith I believe I added recently, he'll be in the update this evening.

      Heathington Im not going to bother, hes only played 5 games or so.

      Dillon is definitely there on SJS.

    • Thanks. Yeah my fault on Dillon. I looked in nhlview and must have spelled it wrong because I looked again and see him.

  • Does anyone know if the T Mobile arena on here will work with Amnesiacs rosters? I tried a jersey pack that said it was for wasserlasser rosters and they didnt work with amnesiacs rosters. I have Las Vegas Ice but still has canadians scoreboard.

    • all the Vegas add-ons are in my roster description and shows what to do.

  • I followed the instructions on this but my games crashes on load up ?

    • Did you run the Toolbox?

    • no i did not, was that on the download?

    • yes

  • Where is the exhibition file located in the NHL folder?

    • Run the Toolbox, it will copy everything as needed.

  • its in the file

  • Hello where can is get this file: genbhnhl? Thank you for the answers.


    here, if you have trouble making an account

  • ops my bad. please ignore my latest post. I tried to access the URL wrongly. All good!

  • Hi there, is there a way to get this file --> Vegas ice (rename ICE_230.fsh to ICE_030.fsh) --->…2017-2018-by-skyline_r341?

    It is because i believe skyline_r341 has deleted the file from the

    Many thanks in advance!

  • it just crashes for me :/

  • Is this roster update a part of a larger mod or group of mods?

  • Wow, what a lot of work you guys put into this! Just wondering if you know of any way to alter the cap (I'm pretty sure I've done it before), as it keeps telling me my team isn't cap compliant (I'm not even at the floor due to a lot of rookie contracts - I even extended them all). Easy workaround would be to sign some expensive free agents, but hoping there's a better way. Thanks!

  • Well it took TEAMWORK bro and we f***ing nail it!!! Props to you and I!!! Enjoy all. Amnesiac, is there a way we can add more game into NHL View? If we can somehow add more games the whole entire season will play out and it will be a lot eaiser when PLAYOFFS start in April. If the Knights make it then I will make a 2018 NHL PLAYOFFS Saved File so we can all play. Cool!! WoooooHooooo!!!!

    • Thank you for all the Vegas mods! Sgamby just edited the strings so that the team name appears too now. Ill update soon, you just need to copy the new local.viv file to the fe folder.

      Really not familiar with "adding games", I dont think its possible. Maybe ask in the forums.

    • Props to both of you, I would agree. Kings, you have changed NHL 09 permanently to a great version. Big step in the future versions.

  • Very works just like this

  • I'm having trouble getting this to work. When I follow the instructions and launch the .exe, NHL09.exe crashes. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I've disabled UAC as you suggested. if it helps, the batch file spits out 'ImpBIG' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.' on a number of the lines.

    • I have it too

  • Amnesiac, are you able to change how its the habs team and just create yours?

    • once the Vegas jerseys are created they can replace the Habs Legends

    • Okay.. when would that approx be?

    • hopefully soon after the season starts... best to ask in the forum
