Hello and welcome to the NHL HUT forums! If this is your first visit here, here are some things you should know:
The general discussion forum: Right now you're in the general discussion forum for HUT. This forum is for discussing various aspects of the game mode with your fellow fans. It's not the right place to ask questions or report problems you might be running into.
HUT Trades and Auctions for Xbox 360: All HUT threads looking to trade or auction players via Xbox Live should be posted in this forum: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/forums/show/3913.page
HUT Trades and Auctions for PS3: All HUT threads looking to trade or auction players via PSN should be posted in this forum: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/forums/show/3914.page
Where do I go if I need help? The HUT forum may not be the right place, but don't worry... we've got you covered. Visit the Tech Help and Feedback forum if you a) have a question about the game b) need to report an issue or share detailed feedback about something you think could be improved or c) need to get in contact with customer support because something isn't working properly. http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/forums/show/3680.page
A friendly reminder about forum etiquette: We're all here on the boards for various reasons, and it's important that we treat each other in a manner that everyone can feel good about. Visit this thread for some helpful tips on forum etiquette. http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/2145566.page
Search before posting a new thread: Before posting a new topic, take a look around and see if it's being covered somewhere else. Making sure you're posting in the right place will keep us from too many duplicate topics.
The forums are a place for our community to have productive discussions with each other and EA staff about the game and other relevant topics. To make sure this forum is kept up to that task, we ask that you are aware of and follow all of the posted rules when on this forum.
Failure to follow these rules can result in your posts being moved, locked, or removed; repeated or serious violations can result in action against your account.
Terms of Service and Forum Guidelines
All of our forums are moderated according to the EA Terms of Service linked at the bottom of every page. When you created your account, you agreed to these terms so it is important that you understand what is expected and what is not allowed. Although we have included specific rules below to help you stick to the ToS, it is important to review the terms and ask questions if you don’t know what something means. Even if you were not aware of one of the conditions of the ToS, you are still held accountable if a violation is committed using your account.
EA’s Terms of service can be found here:

Moderators and Staff
Moderators are volunteers who are passionate about the game and spend so much of their personal time helping out on the forums that EA staff members have granted them a special status. Although they may help with ToS/rules moderation by hiding or moving posts and threads, they are not EA staff and cannot affect your account in any way. Contact a moderator if you have a game/forum question, see a public post that is a ToS violation, or wish to forward information on users cheating in online games. If you have a question or concern about a moderator, please contact an EA staff member.
NHL Forums Moderators:
EA Staff are denoted by rankings showing whether they are Developers, Community Staff, or Administrators. Developers work on the game and may stop in to explain game mechanics or check out feedback. Community managers are usually very active and are your main resource for information, answers, and handling your game feedback. Administrators are Support staff that help upkeep the forums as well as post information to resolve issues that users may have with the game.
The NHL Community Manager is EA_Noun
