NHL 17 1.03 Update Patch Notes fix the problem about gameplay and EA Sports Hockey League

Sometimes the annual installment of a sports game feels like a brand new experience, sometimes it feels like same thing, different year. NHL 17 is the 26th instalment in EA’s puck-slapping series, and the third edition on current-gen machines after the series launched for PS4 and Xbox One with NHL 15. New modes include the eight-team World Cup Of Hockey and Draft Champions – a fantasy spin-off of Ultimate Team. As well as the returning ‘HUT’, franchise mode gets revamped, with team owners and relocation now among its major features. On the AI side, improved physics and player intelligence are two major priorities of dev team EA Canada.   
 
NHL 17 is a great game of hockey, but unlike last year, there isn't a standout mode or feature that makes this game substantially better than its predecessor. It rides off a lot of what NHL 16 did, and the new additions don't add anything crucial to the experience. It's still a lot of fun to trade players in Franchise, build a formidable roster in Hockey Ultimate Team, and actually play matches. And EA Sports has released update patch 1.03 for NHL 17 today. The full patch notes have been revealed for both the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. You can download the patch now on PS4 and Xbox One. It’s not an overly huge patch, but it’s mandatory to download if you want to continue playing the game online. You can check out the full patch notes posted below.
 
Gameplay:
Improved functionality to stick lifts in the open ice and during net battles.
 
EA Sports Hockey League:
-Reduce the chances of the HUT Infinite load issue from occurring.
-Resolution to a jersey issue seen by some users after they switched from custom uniforms to stock.
-Resolved issue where EASHL teams were not able to match up in regular season games after winning an EASHL Playoff Championship.
–Addressed issues with EASHL Drop-in’s where captains on the Class Select screen couldn’t change player class or jersey selection.
-Added a roster download check on entry into EASHL to fix an issue where Creation Zone in EASHL wouldn’t load newly added jerseys or equipment.
-Added additional telemetry logging to help us gather more information about the HUT infinite load issue.
 
NHL 17 has some real strengths, but it still feels like it hasn't quite made it out of the previous generation. The gameplay is strong but increasingly dated; the feature set feels haphazard, and there are lots of niggling quality-of-life issues. EA Sports NHL 17 is out now for the PS4 and Xbox One. We’ll let you know in the near future if other updates are made to the game when new patches come out.
