This achievement requires you to have 150 games played, 75 wins, and an A- overall grade. This can be done in either EASHL or Online Team Play.

To boost this, you'll need four to six players. Meet up in an empty lobby or create your own room and set up an Online Team Play match. One goalie by themselves, the rest on the opposing team as skaters.

The goalie uses cn_LB and cn_A to free skate behind the net and wait for the remaining boosters to score a goal. Once they have and one minute of game time has passed on the clock (so once it's below 19:00) the goalie can quit out, rewarding the opposing team with a quick win and stats. Goalie stats are kept separate from skater stats, so there's no negative impact on the goalie.

As for overall grade, I'll sum up the important parts from a post on EA forums: (http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/7694928.page)

1) Only the last 20 games count towards your rating.
2) Your stats are weighted towards whichever position you play the most.
3) More recent games are weighted heavier than older games.

Overall grade is split into three categories: Position Score, Team Play, and Stats.
Position Score is the easiest, follow where the blue arrow is telling you to be and you'll consistently have an A- minimum there.
Stats, so long as you get at least an assist and the opposing team doesn't score, you'll walk out with an A+.
Team Play is the most difficult, counting completed passes, turnovers, blocked shots, etc. You want to keep games short, as the longer a game goes on, the more chances for bad plays to lower your team play happen.

The best setup for gaining stats involves at least two people on LW and LD (or RW and RD) with C being AI or human. You really only want a human C if they can consistently win faceoffs. The person looking to boost stats in those last 20 games should be LW. LD has potential to get good stats but isn't guaranteed. C is most likely to get dumped on due to the faceoff. Assuming your team wins or ties up the faceoff, there's three options:
1) Puck gets tied up or faceoff won and puck goes to LW. LW gets the puck, skates out and around, scores on the empty net. LW gets A+ all around.
2) Faceoff won, puck goes to LD. LD passes the puck up to LW, who scores on the empty net. LW and LD get A+ all around.
3) Faceoff won, puck goes to anyone else. They pass to LD, LD passes up to LW, who scores on the empty net. All three get A+ all around.

At this point, it's important that the goalie does not wait for a stop in play; as soon as the clock is below 19:00, quit out. While this method is not foolproof, you can get around 25-30 games an hour with an excellent chance for high stats for the one or two closing in on the achievement.
