Yellow Helmets?!

I was playing NHL04 with HIFK, and noticed that one player on both teams wears a yellow helmet. I thought that it could mean the captaincy, but then I noticed that another player on my team was the captain.

Thinking perhaps its only that particular player who wears yellow, I scratched this player. In the next game, another player wore the yellow helmet. What does the helmet signify? (If anything at all, perhaps EA just put it in there by mistake)

we had something like that in elitserien some seasons I think. Then it symbolized the leading scorer me thinks.

Yes, that's the golden helmet sponsored by the national lottery company Veikkaus. Each team's top scorer wears it. The player who wears it for most rounds and is highest on the scoring chart, will receive 9000 .

The idea dates back to late 80's, I don't know where it originated. One of Bykov or Khomutov, I forgot which, famously refused to wear the golden helmet while playing at Swiss league: "I'm a hockey player, not a circus performer."

Does EA do a good job of the Finnish League?

A decent job I would say. Wrong handedness on some players and so on but in general a decent job.
