Release date: September 3, 2013

Franchise Hockey Manager[] 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.


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).


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

This is troubling. A company that removes features (they apparently couldnt get into the game) without telling there customers are allowed on steam? Immature devs who promises too much should stay indipendant until they can keep promises.

Any news on a price decrease? I really appreciate your games but I feel $40 is quite steep for a game still in progress.

Would be great if this game had licensing from NHL and NHLPA (original logos, jersey designs, official photos of players...)

Congratulatin! Glad to see another great sports sim on steam. Anyone excited about this might also checkout Solecismic's Front Office Football, also up on Greenlight atm.

Working on getting it ready now, and since we've got some experience getting OOTP Steam-enabled, it shouldn't take too long. Just trying to coordinate it with a new patch version.
