It took me forever to get this achievement because I was never allowed to play on the PK unit. After much research I found the quickest way to make it happen.

Start a new Be a Pro character and season. Make your new player a two-way forward and center for the Montreal Canadians. In this setup they will start you on PK unit one from day one.

Make sure you have it on Pro difficulty to be eligible for the achievement, but you can go through the rules and gameplay settings and put all of your sliders in your favor and all of the computers sliders against them. Especially make sure to put the penalties slider all the way up and your AI players aggression all the way up.

Start your season and enjoy. I would start each game by simming (slowly) until the opposing team started a power play, then jumping in to play from that point on. It took me about 30 games into the season to get my 14 shorty's. Maybe you can do it faster?!
