Creating Realistic Players from Keyz
To Create Goalies, you only need the GAA (Goals against average per game). First, multiply the GAA by -33, then add 155.7. We’ll call the resulting value the Goalie Index (GI). Then multiply the GI by the following values to get the following ratings…

Agility = GI x 1.05
Glove Rating = GI x 0.98
Stick Rating = GI x .97
Rebound Control = GI x .99
Puck Handling = GI x .96

If any of the following values come out above 99, round to 99. If any come out below 40, round to 40.

To Create Offensive or Defensive Players, you will need the Games Played, Goals, Assists, Penalties in Minutes, and Plus/Minus values. First, Add Goals and Assists to get total Points, Then take the Goals, Assists, Points and Penalties in Minutes (PIM) and divide them each by the games played (season). We will call these values the GPG (goals per game), APG (assists per game), PPG (points per game) and PIMPG (penalties in minutes per game) values. Next, use the following formulae to get the ratings for your players…

Speed = Plus/Minus x .67 then add 69.5
Shot Power = GPG x 89.4 then add 40
Shot Accuracy = Shot Power Rating x 1.019
Passing = APG x 59 then add 40
Stick Handling = PPG x 34.7 then add 40
Body Checking = PIMPG x 10.7 then add 40
Stamina = Speed Rating x 1.04

As before, round to 99 or 40 if any of these values come out above or below, respectively.

Secret Teams from Keyz
When the game is loading after you choose which type of game you want to play, hold A, Y and C down and you can play with Radical’s Rad Army and the Virgin all star team. If you hold down A, Y, and C when the game is loading after all selections have been made (you will see the loading meter filling up), players will be dressed in their 3rd alternate jerseys from last year (only for Bruins, Penguins, Rangers and a few other teams).
