amnesiac's roster 2020-21

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.

  • Just to let you know that again the new roster is not salary compliant for the Toronto Maple Leaf's. Could you please fix it? Greatly appreciated!!

  • Thank you for the time you take to update the roster.

  • The link in the Readme for pmomo2006's Play by Play leads to dead website. I'm new to modding this game so I have no idea where to find appropriate PlayByPlays for 20-21 (to match your roster).

    • Nevermind, I'm just blind. Ignore my comment, sorry!

  • Thanks for all the work you do amnesiac! As always, a great job..much appreciated

  • Thanks for the new roster update! Does this roster update come with an audio-update for the name pronounciations?

  • Why no Juuso Riikola | #50 on the Penguins? This is his third year on team. Just wondering? Great roster, thanks!

  • The file that you directed me to download did not work. Still coming up with not salary compliant.

    • what team(s) isnt compliant?

    • Toronto Maple Leaf's

    • Leafs are at $56.4M while the league cap is $56.7M from what I was told

    • It still comes up not salary compliant. So don't know what to say.

    • The latest version works perfectly. Thanks!!!! Greatly appreciated, hope you had a great Christmas and all the best in the New Year!!

  • What happened to Jason Pominvile? I don't see him in the free agent tab.

    • Hidden players

    • What does that mean?

    • in NHLview hes put in the hidden players tab... I can add him back to FA next update

    • That'd be awesome thank you!

  • With the latest update getting not salary cap complient. Any way of fixing this and adding Joe Thornton to the leafs. Greatly appreciated!!

    • we cant change the cap in the game, and therefore I never bothered re-adjusting the salaries. I can try to put them all lower to fit under, but will take some time.

      Whats the cap int he game? $65M?

    • and whats the floor?

    • Thanks for the update but still getting the salary cap not compliant for the leafs. Any way of fixing or editing it? Thanks and greatly appreciated!!

    • What is the cap in the game?

    • For this year and next year, the NHL salary cap is 81,5$ millions.

  • Amnesiac next update I need you to change Winnipeg Jets and Arizona Coyotes ID's (Winnipeg to #29) (Arizona to #1) You need to match with ELITE as it will be UNIVERSAL (ALL 3 ROSTERS). Alphabetize the team names for the original 30. VGK for your roster is okay. Leave as-is as (CUSTOM). Making the NHL Schedule will be universal. PACKS will have all ELITE FACE ID's so they will all be UNIVERSAL. Thanks in advance Kings1171

    • Arizona is #22, though, not 29

    • No TEAM ID's need to look like this please:

    • if theres a way to simply change the team IDs, I dont know how.

  • Thanks for keep updated the roaster to make us getting a lot fun.

    by the way, how to add team, Vegas Golden Knights to my NHL09, I still don't know how to put all files in

    • step by step in my description to download the files etc

    • Thanks for your reply. is that to copy all extract files to the directory of NHL09?

      there are three zip files to be extracted, right?

    • yes, make sure you have BHimport09_with_IDX, genbhnhl, gfxpak, IMPBig and run the bat file

  • Hey Amnesiac, I have another question for you. Since I dont have excel Im starting New PBP 10 feb 2019 with OpenOffice and I just can't understand how to find my nhlview directory . This ''Edit your DB.viv files in Nhlview with the correct PBP ID from my files.'' I dont understand neither. Following question is could I run the game with the updated patch without instaling that audio pack by just following steps 1-4 and then run the toolbox? Thanks in advance!

  • Thank you guys for keep updating the roster and all the stuff for nhl09. I have downloaded the patch years ago and I was having awesome experience playing the updated game. I have 2 questions for you Amnesiac - could I still play online games(with hamachi or real ip) if I have the updated roster but my opponent does not or we both have it? Also, turning off UAC I remember is so you can start the game, but can I turn on UAC againe every time when I exit the game? Would this couse any problems with starting the game the next time?

  • Hi thanks
