With NHL training camps just a couple weeks away, news about the NHL 22 Franchise and Be a Pro modes is right around the corner. Electronic Arts has announced their reveal schedule in the lead up to release. EA has also been busy on Twitter promoting these announcements – and they’re not far away.

On October 4, EA Sports will detail NHL 22’s Franchise mode in a deep dive focused on the mode:

EA Sports also had this to say about the Franchise mode in NHL 22:

Start your NHL 22 Franchise with the Expansion Draft! Build a new team from the ground up, and you can choose either the Seattle Kraken or add a 33rd team to the league and draft with them. If you choose an existing team, you’ll have to decide which players from your roster that you want to protect from getting selected by the expansion team.

Be A Pro

Alongside Franchise mode, NHL 22’s Be A Pro mode will get some love:

Live your dream hockey career in new ways with fresh multi-season storylines and challenges. You’ll have more options than ever: take on long-term goals like building a dynasty early in your career like Crosby, or go for consecutive Cups on different teams like Maroon. It’s your story, so write it your way.

Be A Pro, a longtime popular mode in NHL 22, will also be the focus of the October 4 deep dive by EA Canada:

NHL 22 will be the first in the series to run on the Frostbite engine. It will also be the first iteration to appear on the Xbox Series X|S consoles.
