    Alright well this achievement is a grind but its not that much of one.i just got this achievement today in 143 games with an average of 19.98 points per game.There are a couple tips that will help you get this achievement alot faster.

    Obviously dont play as a defenseman,but pick Centre instead. There will be many times when the face off is in the opponents end of the ice and you win the face off and hope that the Dman who gets it scores a goal giving you an assist.

    adjust the sliders in your favor for everything that is available. This will obviously make your player stronger,faster and more accurate in everything he does. Also make sure to adjust how the opponents goalie is affected by screens from your teammates.

    Turn off the penalties in the game so you dont have to worry about taking bad penalties or losing time when your team is on the PK or PP.

    Turn off the offsides and icing so that you can pretty much be a goal suck and stay in the offensive zone all the time.

    Last but not least focus on goals more then assists.i got just over 1000 points in my first 82 games with a balance of assists and goals but in the 61 games i played in my second season i ended up with 1500 goals and 300 by never passing unless there was no chance of me getting a goal.

    ChizzyOk so I was working on this achievement and I had around 400 points and then when I went to check there was a different created pro. So all of my starts are gone. My character is still there with all the goals and assists, but I can't track it. How can I switch it back

    The guide that's here already is good, but I thought I'd go more in depth on how to actually get the points easily in Be a Pro mode. You should be able to get drastically more points per game than 20. I play with 5 minute periods and average well over 50 pts a game. Actually just scored 81 goals against Columbus as I was typing this up.

    First, you want to definitely be a center. With the exception of a faceoff on the left side of the offensive zone (I won those to my right D), I won every faceoff with a deke. You can do this easily with the sliders in your favor by just holding LB and up on the right analog stick until the puck is dropped. There is no need to time it correctly.

    I found the easiest way to score was to just glide towards to goalie after winning the faceoff at center ice and to watch where the goalie was positioned. Based on the look the goalie would give me, I would deke to the side he left open and score 95% of the time. If he is far to the left or right, you can actually just shoot and score most of the time. Here is a video of what it usually looked like:

    Also, keep in mind that the defense will never poke the puck away from you or hit you. You can skate right up the middle at the goalie with no problems. The only way you'll lose possession is if you fall from turning too quick. For this reason, I never called for passes that could be intercepted. I took the puck deep in my zone (the occasional times the other team got it) and took it all the way up ice.

    If you already have the BAP achievements that correspond with PP and SH goals I would recommend turning off penalties since it slows down the game a bit, but it's not necessary by any means. I played with icing, offsides, and penalties all on.

    Good luck and comment if you need any help.

    ChizzyYou should put how you controlled your skater after winning the faceoff

    Doc StatusI always just skated straight into the zone directly down the middle. This gave me the option to shoot/deke to either side which I wouldn't necessarily have if I came in at an angle. The defense (with the sliders all the way in your favor) will not do anything except skate with you so you can pretty much do whatever you want as long as you aren't loose puck deking or turning too fast.

    Not sure exactly what you were requesting, but I hope that helps you out.
