WHAT IS FHM?

Franchise Hockey Manager[www.ootpdevelopments.com] is the richest hockey management game in the world. A truly global game, FHM features leagues from around the world, with hundreds of real teams and thousands of realistically rated real players included.

LEAGUES IN FHM

There are three ways to set up a new FHM game:

A Historical Season
Travel as far back as 1947 and take control of your favorite team. Can you replicate its success? Can you right the wrongs of previous GMs? Chart a new course as you play your way through history.

Custom League
Set up a league configured the way you want, from the number of conferences and divisions to the playoff format. Stock fresh franchises with fictional players and watch your hockey universe grow.

2013-2014 Season
Launch a 2013-14 season campaign in one of 19 playable leagues (many more non-playable leagues are included, and more playable leagues will be added as research is completed on them).

FHM’S SIMULATION ENGINE

We're the company who created the best-selling, long-running Out of the Park Baseball series, so we understand sports sims. FHM leverages everything we've learned from OOTP's development to deliver the most realistic hockey experience available. You'll find realistic statistical output coupled with in-game AI that delivers the perfect armchair GM challenge.

STATS, STATS AND MORE STATS

FHM features not only the usual hockey stats - goals, assists, +/-, shorthanded and power play goals, etc. - but also plenty of other numbers that let you dive deep into your roster. Examine shots blocked, fights won, giveaways and takeaways, time on ice in various situations, penalty specifics, and much more, including Corsi, Fenwick, and other advanced stats.

LIFE AS A GENERAL MANAGER

This is as close as you'll get to sitting in a GM's office without drawing a paycheck from a team. Oversee team finances, keep an eye on the salary cap, check on your assistance coaches and scouts, watch the waiver wire, put together trade packages, make contract offers to free agents, and much more.

ON THE ICE

You can oversee your team's games or let the AI handle them for you, based on the wide array of strategies you set. During games, a realistic scoreboard gives all the vital statistics while the play-by-play lets you know what's happening and the player portraits show you who's on the ice.

A LIVING LEAGUE!

When you start a new game, your league will come alive with news articles, messages from other GMs and players, announcements of upcoming milestones (a player's 500th career goal, for example), and more. You'll read about hat tricks, thrilling come-from-behind victories, key trades, devastating injuries, and other important happenings.

THE INTERFACE

FHM's easy-to-use interface will help you quickly begin running your team, starting with the Manager Home Screen, which alerts you to important tasks, upcoming games, news items, injury reports, and more.

I'm intrigued with this game.

EHM had its faults, which lead to its demise.
Hopefully, FHM has learned from its previous foray into hockey sims.
