No, Bartschi played in the NHL on an Emergency Recall basis, which does not make him part of the NHLPA.

CALGARY, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today that they have called up forward Sven Baertschi on emergency recall from the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League.

“Sven had an impressive training camp with us this year and legitimately could have been part of our opening night roster,” said Flames General Manager Jay Feaster. “We elected to send him back to Portland prior to the start of the season because we did not project him spending the entire season in Calgary. In light of the way Sven has performed this season in the WHL, and given our current injury situation, we feel Sven is the right player to be recalled to Calgary at this time."

Baertschi, a native of Langenthal, Switzerland, is coming off a week that saw him score eight goals and two assists for 10 points and a +4 rating in four games which earned him WHL Player of the Week honours for the third time this season. In 47 games this season, Baertschi has scored 33 goals along with 61 assists which puts him in the top ten scoring leaders in the WHL despite missing 19 games.

With the Flames absolutely decimated with injuries, Jay Feaster made an interesting move on Wednesday recalling Sven Bartschi from the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. This option only became available due to the unique circumstances surrounding the current state of injuries on the Flames. On Monday the Flames recalled three players from Abbotsford on an emergency recall which did not cause the Flames to have to burn any of their remaining post deadline recalls. Bartschi will have to be sent back down to Portland when two of the Flames injured players return.
Saad played as a junior. Age 18 and 19 players who were returned to Major Junior and have played 11 or fewer games are not officially part of the NHLPA. Saad was previously used under the CHL license.

If you're playing offline, send him to Norfolk and select Anaheim as his Pro Team.

If you're playing GM Connected (which, as far as I'm aware, they aren't using this roster for GMC yet), you're boned.

Nazem Kadri was the player the EASports guys used when listing a player that, despite not being in the NHL at the time, was in the game and on the AHL roster becuase he had played a game in the NHL the prior season (2009-10) and I believe that was on an emergency call-up aswell.

That sounds fine until you get sued for illegally profiting off someone else's name and likeness.

Hey guys, about the new update. Once you get the CHL update, the players who have graduated (Sven,Tinordi,Gallagher,etc.) aren't there, I know. But is there a way of getting them and transferring them to their AHL teams, or are they gone?!
Thanks

Someone had suggested that if you put ones you want to keep on a custom team they'll be retained, but I've never tried it.

It doesn't work.

Created teams are deleted when you apply the roster update.

Yea I was the guy that suggested using a created team earlier. I haven't been able to hop on NHL 13 this weekend so I couldn't test it myself, but I read on another forum that the created teams stay even after you update the rosters.

I haven't played NHL 13 in like 2 months because of the horrid rosters, I just don't want to spend hours fixing them when someone at EA should be doing it. I'm probably not going to play until they fix the AHL rosters.

They need to get their **** together. I am not impressed with buying a game and not being able to play it for 6 months because the rosters are so broken. It's NHL 13, get with it EA and do this crap a lot sooner next year. Next year I'm not buying the game until they have proper rosters.

So, when they're in the CHL, you can use their "likeness" and that's perfectly fine.. but the minute they join the AHL and up until they sign their PHPA papers you can no longer use their likeness, even though they used their likeness in a previous game/roster and will be using the exact same in-game character as they used in said previous games/rosters? It's dumb.

The NHL series profits off fans love of hockey and it's star players, not the players that are jumping from the CHL to the AHL.

Aren't you supposed to be able to customize your teams entrance and the music played for goals?

You can do that through the custom music under My NHL 13. Word of warning though, custom music has been rumored to be able to freeze your game.

do you need music of your harddrive then? How would I go about transferring from my laptop to the xbox? USB? Normally I just use wifi connection to play it over the game, but that won't work for the custom music obviously

Right, because the CHL has a licensing agreement with EA.

Right, because the PHPA has a licensing agreement with EA.

When the individual is out of the CHL and not yet in the PHPA (or NHLPA), they are not covered by any licensing agreement. EA has no right to use their likeness without such an agreement.

I guess they could strike an agreement with the individual, but you can bet that the player's agent would want compensation. And considering they're not paying CHL players anything (I'm not sure about the PHPA) I doubt that EA is about to spend money on a prospect that 99% of their audience has never heard of.

Quote:

Dumb or not, it would be an open-and-shut lawsuit against EA if they went around using people's likenesses without a contract.

Quote:

That being the case, does Andreas Nodl or Steven Kampfer really need to be in the game?

Answer: yes, they do need to be in the game because EA customers expect complete rosters for every team. You can see the reaction to incomplete rosters in this thread, particularly the people saying they won't buy future editions without better roster completeness. Therefore, EA is in fact profiting off even the most random CHL'ers who are included only to make the game more authentic.

Desperately needed. Rochester alone has ~6 players in the game that aren't actually on the team anymore (Persson (D), MacIntyre (G), Szczechura (C), Whitmore (LW), Ryan (LW), Stuart (LW)) and are missing about 8 (Girgensons (LW/C), Pysyk (D), Knapp (G), Gauthier-Leduc (D), Flynn (RW), Roy (RW), Rankin (C), Lieuwen (G)).

Is scoring supposed to be impossible in this game, or am I just awful at playing this?

Playing on the easiest settings, with sliders turned up completely in my favour, scored 15 goals in seven league games.

Not that I want or expect 10 goals a game, but three per game would be fun.
