You can go to Create Custom League (fictional League) and use the NHL-AHL-CHL structure now to create a league from scratch.
So one Major League(NHL), one Minor League(AHL) and 3 Major Junior Leagues(CHL). You can also check the box that says use real player and it will populate the teams with the real players rather than fictional ones.

Just don't forget to uncheck "initial draft" otherwise a fantasy draft takes place

And turn real players on, assuming that's what you want - the default setting for custom leagues is off. Forgot to do both more times than I'd care to admit while testing.

It would be cool if in future versions we are able to give a teams entire roster/protected list to a created team.

But couldn't you take the real NHL/AHL/CHL and turn them into fictional leagues? That's what I've been doing since FHM 2 made its debut.


Seems like a lot of work for nothing but I won't complain, Anything done with fictional leagues is an overall plus in my books.

You can but you can't re-arrange and re-name conferences or divisions.
This setting also allows you to do a fantasy draft of the full NHL rosters.

What I did was make the AHL and ECHL as competing leagues against the NHL.


I moved 10 NHL teams to the AHL and 10 teams to the ECHL(manually moving players one at a time with player editor) and changed the 20 vacant NHL teams into expansion teams(of course without an expansion draft).


I would turn on the no movement clause on most of the players so they wouldn't be sent down or called up to their real life teams.

This was actualy my idea as far as i remember and the dev agreed it could be something doable. What i like with this option is i can play with most real life setting and rules without caring about the players. This is one thing that annoy me a bit when playing with 'real life setting' is that you just know who are the best player around, best prospect in the years to come and etc. Having the league setting with fictional players allow me to discover a new world haha
