There are 3 general trophies. Two of the trophies deal with boost items for your Pro. Most boosts are unlocked by playing at least 40 games a season and getting a lot of points. For the other trophy, "Up and Comers," you have to win a game on Pro difficulty with an OHL, WHL or QMJHL team.
Be A Pro/Be A GM Trophies
There are 3 Be a Pro mode trophies. Two of the Be a Pro trophies you will get if you just play the game and get at least 1 point a game. The other trophy, "Filled Up," you can get easily by just buying Boost Slots in the PSN store.
There are 4 Be a GM mode trophies. The "Good Preview" trophy is easy because you just have to play and win one of the four preseason games. For "Proven Worth" you have to score with a newly-drafted player at any time during the season. For the trophy "Poached" you have to sign a level 3 restricted player. Then the last Be a GM trophy is "Legendary GM" - this trophy requires you to get your Legend plaque.
Online Versus/Shootout Trophies
There are 3 Online Versus trophies. All 3 of these trophies can be boosted in one game. Make sure you win 75% of face offs, kill a 5 vs. 3 power play, and start the 3rd period down by 2 goals and win. There are also 2 Shootout trophies. For the trophy "Schooled!" you have to win a shootout match with an OHL, WHL or QMJHL team. For the other Shootout trophy, "Shootout Start," you have to win 5 ranked Shootout matches online.
In Game Trophies
There are 5 in game trophies. For the trophy "Fist Pump" you just have to press any button after scoring a goal. "Look Ma, No Stick" and "Sacrifice the Body" are both achieved when you don't have a stick. The other 2 trophies, "Supposed To Be Standing" and "Going Upstairs," involve luck but you will have many chances to get them while trying for all the other trophies.
There are 7 EASHL trophies. For "Custom Sweater" all you have to do is finish a match with a custom jersey. "Boosted Up" you can get easily by just buying Boost Slots in the PSN store. For "Practice, Practice, Practice," all you have to do is finish 8 practice games. For "EASHL Playoffs Champ" you have to play a playoff game and win it. The other trophy you will be going for is "EASHL Veteran" and you have to play 250 games with your Pro.
There are 13 hut trophies. For "HUT CPU Win" you have to win a HUT game on Pro difficulty. For "HUT Online Win" you have to win a HUT online match. For "Box of Cards" you have to open up 15 card packs. For "HUT Playoff Contender" you have to make the monthly playoffs in HUT.
For "Team Colors" you need to have all the logos and jerseys for a team. It's best to use an AHL team because they only have 1 logo and 2 jerseys. For "5 Star Battle" you must face a 5-star team with a 5-star team and win. To make it easier, some tournaments have no salary limit so with those you don't have to worry about being over the cap limit. Then you have "HUT Champion" in which you have to win 5 online tournaments. It can easily be boosted with a single person.
To boost any trophies, please see the Online Boosting Thread.

Raise Your Banner
Acquire all Bronze, Silver, and Gold trophies
Purchase or unlock 20 Boost items
You can get a lot of boost items by playing 40 games in Be a Pro mode. Then do really good that season and you're bound to get at least 10 boost items. Many boost items will just come naturally while you are going for other trophies. If you want to buy boost items you can get cheap ones for only $1.00 in the PSN store.
Try It On For Size
Visit the Hockey Shop and equip an attribute boost into a boost slot
Go into My Pro -> Hockey Shop and equip any boost for your skater.
Up and Comers
Play and win a match using an OHL, WHL, QMJHL team against a Pro level CPU NHL team
It doesn't really matter what team you choose, but it has to be an OHL, WHL or QMJHL team. You can edit any in-game stats but make sure you are on playing on Pro difficulty. I played against the Atlanta Thrashers because they are not that high overall for an NHL team.
Be A Pro
Top Draft Pick
Get your created Pro drafted in the first round of the NHL Draft
The best way to guarantee that you get picked in the first round is by playing every game before the draft. You can adjust in-game settings so that you are really good. Try to get at least 5 points a game - that should give you enough experience for each game.
Remain on NHL team after the Pre-Season with a created Pro
Once you get into the Pre-Season (after you get drafted into the NHL), there will be 4 Pre-Season games. Go in and play all 4 games and manage to score a goal in every game. You should remain in the NHL.
Complete a Be A Pro game with all Boost Slots of one equipment type filled
First off, you have to purchase or unlock 3 boost slots. You can find out which slots are unlocked by going to 'My Pro -> Hockey Shop' from the main menu. There are different types of skill sets for each type of equipment type, so either focus on the 3 stick slots or one of the others. If you choose the 3 stick slots, you can, for example, put +1, +3 and +5 boosts for any attribute into these 3 slots. This trophy will unlock after the next game you play with your Be a Pro team.
Be A GM
Play and win a Pre-Season match in Be A GM mode
Start a Be A GM and simulate to the Pre-Season games. Play any of the four Pre-Season games and win.
Play and complete a game while scoring a goal with a newly drafted skater in Be A GM mode
During the Pre-Season, you get to do the NHL draft. After you draft someone remember who they are and put them on your line. Then at any time during the season, play a game and score a goal with that person.
Sign, from another team, a level 3 or above Restricted Free Agent in Be A GM
1. Start Be A GM with Colorado Avs.
2. Keep Salary Cap on.
3. Simulate up until the first day where you can sign RFAs.
4. Sign Marc Stall for $7 million, 2 years.

Receive your Legend Plaque in Be A GM using at least Medium difficulty
What I did was take my favorite team (The Ducks), added all the top players in the league to my roster, including both Lugano and Miller as my goalies. Make sure you save your roster as you want to use the current roster.
Now go into Be a GM mode and make sure salary cap is off and playoffs are set to one game series. One game series are quicker and usually the better team wins so there's less simulating. Also, turn off CPU trades and waivers. Here's the trick - before you select your team of superstars, use to sub out each of the other NHL teams with teams from other leagues that are overall 80 and below, and after you do that pick your star-studded team.
Then go ahead and sim away, and in this NHL league you will average 62-70 wins per season. Just remember to re-sign your players each off season and within 4-5 seasons you will reach Legendary status.
One last thing... in the playoffs make extra saves in case you happen by chance to lose a game.

Kill of a 5 on 3 powerplay lasting at least 1 minute in a ranked versus match
You need to have 2 of your players and none from the other team in the penalty box at the same time. This has to last 1 minute, all powerplays last 2 minutes so you need to get a second player in the penalty box with more then 1 minute left in the original powerplay. An easy way to get a penalty is to just dump the puck out of play. To do that, hold down and at the same time. If you need help doing this, use the Online Boosting Thread.
Come Back King
Win a ranked versus match starting the 3rd period down by at least 2 goals
When the 3rd period starts, the other player needs to have 2 more goals than you. Then, in the 3rd period, score 2 goals and go into overtime or score 3 goals and win the game. If you need help doing this, use the Online Boosting Thread.
Play and finish a ranked versus match with a Faceoff percentage of at least 75%
Just keep winning every Faceoff. Every couple of Faceoffs the screen will tell you the percentage you have won. If you need help getting this, use the Online Boosting Thread.
Win 5 Ranked Online Shootout matches
Simply just win 5 Ranked Online Shootout matches. If you need help, use the Online Boosting Thread.
Play and win a Ranked Online Shootout match using a OHL, WHL, or QMJHL team
Choose Quick Ranked Online Shootout and when you get to the Pick Teams screen, choose an OHL, WHL, or QMJHL team. All you have to do is win the match. If you need help getting this trophy, use the Online Boosting Thread.
In Game Events
Sacrifice the Body
Block a shot without a stick
This is possible to boost. The easiest method is in Open Practice with a teammate in your EASHL team.
Change practice from Scrimmage to Open Practice. One of you stick lift the other until the stick brakes. Then just lie down on the ice and have your partner shoot at you from close range. Use the same method in the video for "Look Ma, No Stick".
Perform a User Controlled Goal Celebration
This trophy is hard to miss. Whenever you score a goal, press any button and you should perform a user controlled goal celebration.
Look Ma, No Stick
Without a stick, perform a kick or glove pass that leads to a goal
1. Invite a friend to a game and have him use as many controllers as possible.
2. Go to your own defensive zone with the puck.
3. Have your friend start and stick lift you until your stick breaks
4. At that moment, pass the puck with your feet to a teammate and your friend have to pull his goalie. ( + on PS3).
Supposed To Be Standing
Score a goal from the ground or your knees
This trophy involves some luck. You could try boosting this by having the other person pull their goalie and while you go on a breakaway. Then have the other person dive and after a few trys you should fall to your knees. After that take the shot.
Have your team receive a goal based on video review
This trophy involves some luck. You should be able to get this trophy while going for all the other trophies. They tend to review goals when high sticking is involved or it looks like they kick the puck into the net.

Complete an EA SPORTS Hockey League match while wearing a Custom Jersey
The owner or a GM of your club have to make a custom jersey. Then you just have to play and complete one game with your team to unlock this trophy. If that wasn't done during the creation of the club, just go to 'Club Tools -> GM Settings -> Select Team Uniform -> Custom'.
Complete an EA SPORTS Hockey League match with any one attribute boosted by +9
First off, you have to purchase or unlock 3 boost slots. You can find out which slots are unlocked by going to 'My Pro -> Hockey Shop' from the EASHL menu. There are different types of skill sets for each type of equipment type, so either focus on the 3 stick slots or one of the others. If you choose the 3 stick slots, you can for example put +1, +3 and +5 boosts for 'Wrist Shot Power' into these 3 slots. This trophy will unlock after the next game you play with your EASHL team.
Practice, Practice, Practice
Play at least 8 hours of game time in EA SPORTS Hockey League Practice
To get this trophy, you need at least one or more team mates to access Practice mode. Then you have to play 8 hours of game time to unlock this trophy. This means 8 complete practices. It has not been confirmed if OT counts, so I suggest you do 8 different practice games.
Be a member of an EA SPORTS Hockey League team when they participate in a monthly playoff
See "EASHL Playoffs Champ"
EASHL Playoffs Champ
Be a member of an EA SPORTS Hockey League team when they win a monthly playoff match
Playoffs are held during the last 5 days of any month. In order to qualify for the Playoffs, your team have to play at least one game. That will put the team in Pro league (the middle one). In order to get these two trophies, you actually have to play the game while the team wins a Playoff match. It's not enough to be a member of the team.
1. Get at least 4 people together during the regular season. 3 of you make one team each so that there are at 3 teams. Let's call them 'Main Team', 'Reserve Team 1' and 'Reserve Team 2'. Play one regular season match (before the Playoffs start). Win or lose, every team should end up in the Pro League Playoffs. The league has to be the same for all teams.
2. When Playoffs have started. 2 of the members should play a Playoff game on the 'Main Team', while the other two plays for 'Reserve Team 1'. The captains of each team (the one who picks position first), should be in contact with each other and press to matchmake at the same time. If you don't meet each other, back out at the matchmaking screen by pushing . It might take a few tries before you match up.
3. When the first Playoff match is over with. Those on 'Main Team' goes over to 'Reserve Team 2' and those that lost the match for 'Reserve Team 1' goes over to 'Main Team'. And the process is repeated so that those who lost the first game, wins the second one.
Note: We couldn't figure out how to pull the goalie in Playoff games (it's normally + ), so we let the losing team use a human controlled goalie to make sure the correct team gets the win.
If the Playoffs have started, and you don't have a team, this process can be tweaked to use Public Teams. Try to get into teams that aren't active, all tough any GMs setting up a public club has to be aware of the possibility of this. Just send a join request to any public team that have qualified for the Playoffs and you're automatically on that team. Then just follow the principles laid out in the 'Preferred method'.
Play 100 Ranked matches with your online Be A Pro character
See "EASHL Veteran".
Play 250 Ranked matches with your online Be A Pro character
To get this trophy, you need to play 250 games with your online Be A Pro player. Both EASHL games with your club and drop-in games work for this. When you have completed 250 games with your Be A Pro Character, this trophy will unlock.
You can keep track of your progress by going to 'My Pro -> Performance Tracker' from the EASHL menu.

Hockey Ultimate Team
Open a Hockey Ultimate Team Starter Pack
Choose 'Hockey Ultimate Team' from the start menu. When you have chosen a name for your club and acronym, your starter pack will unlock along with this trophy.
HUT CPU Win
Play and win a Hockey Ultimate Team single player match versus at least a Pro Level CPU
Choose 'Play Game' from the HUT menu and then either 'Tournaments' or 'Single Player Match'. If you choose 'Single Player Match', make sure it is set to 'Pro'. If you choose 'Tournaments', you have to choose a single player tournament with at least 2 stars or more. You need to win a game to get this trophy.
HUT Online Win
Play and win a Hockey Ultimate Team online match
Choose 'Play Game' from the HUT menu and then either 'Tournaments' or 'EAUHL Online Game'. If you choose 'Tournaments', you have to choose a online tournament. You need to win a game to get this trophy. You can't invite a friend, but if you search for a game at the same time, it should be easy to find each other.
Open first Jumbo Pack
To buy a 'Jumbo Pack', you have to go to the 'Store' from the HUT menu and then buy a 'Jumbo Pack'. You can either use your earned Pucks or buy with real money. It costs 7500 Pucks, so you have to play some tournaments first to save up money.
Looking for Deals
Visit a Hockey Ultimate Team Trading screen
Go to 'Trading' from the HUT menu.
Box of Cards
Open 15 Card Packs
It can be very tempting to go for the 'Peewee Pack' to get this out of the way, but I suggest you don't unless you already have all the other trophies. Depending on how well you do, you should go for the more expensive packs. You can also use real money to buy these packs if you so wish.
Taking on the CPU
Enter a Hockey Ultimate Team single player tournament
Simply go to 'Play Game' from the HUT menu and then choose 'Tournaments'. Enter one of the single player tournaments and this trophy will unlock. You have to play a game for the trophy to unlock.
Taking on the Public
Enter a Hockey Ultimate Team online tournament
Simply go to 'Play Game' from the HUT menu and then choose 'Tournaments'. Enter one of the online tournaments and this trophy will unlock.
Win a Hockey Ultimate Team online trophy
See "HUT Champion"
HUT Playoff Contender
Qualify for a Hockey Ultimate Team monthly playoff tournament
EA hasn't revealed much about the requirements. I've heard of people winning one game and not losing and qualify for the Playoffs, and others not making it with a 6-1 record. It's all about finishing high enough in the rankings. If you follow the strategy to get "HUT Champion", preferably beating different teams and doing them all during the same month, you should easily qualify for the Playoffs. The Playoffs are only open for the first few days in the following month, so make sure you go into HUT during the Playoff time, chose Playoffs from the menu. If either the Amateur, Pro or Elite Playoff tournament is unlocked, your trophy will unlock. You don't need to play any Playoff games.
Collect both a Logo Card and all Jersey Cards from the same team
To get this trophy, you have to collect a 'Logo Card' and all 'Jersey Cards' from the same team. Most NHL teams have 5 jerseys so I suggest you go for a AHL, CHL or European League teams with only 2 jerseys. As you need to spend some time with HUT anyway, I suggest you don't go for this trophy straight away. After a while, you should check your collection and see if there are any teams you only need one or two cards to get this trophy and then search for that missing cards on the Trading list. You could also use the Hockey Ultimate Team Thread to ask if someone wants to trade a card like that. When you get a complete team set, go to your collection to watch the cards and this trophy will unlock.
5 Star Battle
Beat another 5 star team with your 5 star team in a Hockey Ultimate Team online match
First you need to improve your team so that you get a 5 star team. Focus on getting 'Jumbo Packs' because it is the pack with most rare cards in them. Keep an eye out for limited card packs as well which may include even more rare cards. When you have a 5 star team, you have to meet another 5 star team and beat them. Do that either via 'EAUHL Online Game' or an online tournament and hope the other team also is a 5 star team.
You have to make sure that your team stays under the salary cap. The biggest strategy to get this to work is to sign players to long contracts, and then train them up. If you do it the other way around, your player will need a much higher salary.
If you can't keep under the salary cap, there is no reason to sweat about it. There are two different tournaments with no cap space in them.
United Nationals Trophy
Unlock: 1 Trophy (offline or online)
Entry requirement: Players must be 23 years or older
Minor League Championship
Unlock: 10 trophies (can be combination of online and offline)
Entry Requirement: Team Goalie Rating must be 85 or higher.
NB: By trophies, it means tournament wins.
You can also boost this trophy with a friend or partner that has a five star team to. Just make sure you search for a Tournament game at the same time. It should be fairly easy to find your boosting partner within a few tries. To find a boosting partner, go to the Online Boosting Thread.
Collect 5 Hockey Ultimate Team Online Trophies in your collection
In order to win an online tournament, you have to enter an online tournament and then win four games in a row. You have to repeat this 4 more times to get this trophy. You have to win 5 different tournaments in the "Online" category. Featured tournaments do NOT count. This can be hard for most people so if you want to boost this, here is the only method. You need a partner and you have to communicate in one way or another so that you enter a tournament at the same time. The way these tournaments work is that you get matched up towards a random player for each round. So you can play the same person for every round. To get a win that counts toward winning the tournament, you have to finish the game. Use the Online Boosting Thread to find partners for this trophy. Keep in mind that your partner (the one losing the games) do not need to play the same tournament as you. This is great since the alt account probably hasn't been played on except for losing games, and will only be eligible for a few of the tournaments.
If you're going for this trophy and the "HUT Playoff Contender" at the same time, you should try and beat different teams. If your partner has more than one alt account, that works great. Try and beat a different user for each tournament.

Some tips. Anaheim and Washington have the least jerseys with 4 so go after those. Anyone know if you have to finish the game towards the 250 ranked be a pro. If not then it's not that bad. If so then just play 8/9 games a day and you'll be down in a month. They are fun with friends.
