The Franchise Hockey Manager
series returns for the 2019-20 season with plenty of new additions to the deepest, most authentic hockey strategy gaming experience you can find.
Choose one of 32 leagues around the globe and select a team to guide to glory, including a chance at the ultimate prize: FHM6 is licensed by the NHL®, allowing you to take the reins of your favorite franchise to capture the Stanley Cup®. Or create your own hockey universe, or even choose a historical NHL® start date from any year in league history right back to the beginning in 1917. Sign free agents, trade players, draft the next crop of superstars, and much more!
This is as close as you'll get to sitting in a General Manager's office without drawing a paycheck from a team. Oversee team finances, hire your staff, make trades, sign free agents, and draft the newest generation of stars as you try to build a championship team - and then make it into a dynasty!
