    Heres another way to do it which I think is better.

    Pick a team, make all the players on that team 99 overall.

    Then edit the top 15 goalies in the league and make their attribues worse so their overall drops below 60.

    Then do the same thing as mentioned above, start a game, play the first couple minutes, then quit and sim to the end, but make sure you play every other game so you dont get benched.

    Anyway, you should get a win for every game, and I only allowed 4 goals once, I actually had 16 shutouts, so you dont have to constanly worry about reloading your game.

    My actual goals against average at the end of the year was 1.76, all from simming. I guess having good defense makes a big difference

    Should take about 2 hours

    Ryanf1193I can't get past the pre season without getting sent down. and I always win every game, any suggestions?

    JibbermidgetPlay every second game. Every third game is bs. I got my starts cut after getting 3 back to back shut outs to start the season.

    Did exactly this guide, but played every second game, and finished 11th in Vezina voting. Even though inked the league in wins, GAA and shutouts.

    There is an extremely easy way to get this achievement in your first year and be a 99 Overall goalie.

    -From the main menu go to My NHL 13 -> Creation Zone -> Create Player -> Create Goalie -> go all the way to the right and make his potential 5 stars, potential accuracy high and max out all of his stats and apply.

    -Now back out until you're in the My NHL 13 menu again. From there go to Roster Management -> Player Movement. Choose the team you want to play on on the left, and change the right side to Free Agents and find your goalie and trade him to your team. To make it easier, you can max out the stats of the players on your team by going back into the Creation Zone and lowering the stats of the other goalies.

    -Now to get your season started. Go to Other Game Modes -> Be a Pro Mode -> New Pro -> (THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART) BE A NHL PRO. Not regular Pro, you want NHL pro! From there pick your created Pro on the NHL team you put him. Adjust game settings to make it easier for yourself and start your season.

    I would play every third game and just quit when the puck would drop but do this for every game you can in the preseason to make sure you make the team. You will be in contention for the Vezina in your first year, your goalie stats will be 99, your teams stats will be 99 overall (if you changed them) and you will play the majority of the games. Save after every game you've played just to make sure and use multiple saves. It took me 30 minutes using this method and this method also works for Two-Way Threat (Selke) using a two way centerman.

    Martel18It's been awhile but i think i edited most of my forwards and defense to be 99 overalls then slowed down cpu shots and made them inaccurate.

    The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the best goalie during the regular season. You will want to have the most wins, highest save %, and lowest GAA to be guaranteed this trophy. This one could be annoying if you don’t enjoy playing as goalie. To start off we are going to edit the rosters. Put all the Legends on the team of your choice (let's use Detroit for example). Now you are going to take all the goalies from your team (Detroit) and swap them out for goalies from the DEL league with 40 or 50 overalls (DO NOT SWAP WITH PLAYERS FROM THE FREE AGENTS). You are going to do the same thing with the goalies from the AHL affiliate (Grand Rapid Griffins). This makes it so you are the "best" goalie in your teams system and you shouldn't get randomly sent down to the AHL.

    Now start Be A Pro as a goalie on the team we just modified. In the preseason, play the first period of the first 2 games. This should make you set for the role as starter in the regular season. Once you make it to the regular season, make sure you SAVE THE GAME

    My rule while going for this, was to NEVER allow more than 2 goals in a game. So for the first game of the season, start the game and play for about 5 minutes and then quit. The game will autosim the rest of it and if your team won and the other team scored 2 goals or less, then SAVE THE GAME. Now you should be able to sim the next 2-3 games without playing at all. Just do 1 game at a time and if the other team scored more than 2 goals, reload your last save. Make sure you are saving after every successful game. If you haven't played in the past 3 games or so, the coach will tell you he is not giving you as many starts. THIS IS BAD so you are going to need to reload your last save and play that game. The good news is that you don't need play the whole game, just hang around for 5-10 minutes and then quit. Keep doing this process of simulating 1 game at a time and only saving when you have good stats. I would recommend alternating save slots encase you need to fallback on an older one. As long as you have the best GAA and SV%, you should win the Vezina. But you should also shoot for the most wins. This can be a long process but at least you don't have to actually play as goalie.

    My stats when I won it.
    70GP / 62 Wins / 1 Loss / 1OTL
    1.26GAA / 94.91 Sv% / 8 Shutouts

    5 goalies had more shutouts than me (Carey Price had 12) but with all the other stats I was able to win the Vezina.

    Stigga97I would like to add that when you go to Stats Central > Player Stats > Goalies > NHL as a whole you can sort each stat category. If you're on the top then you're in the clear for the Vezina. If you're not on top you can easily find who those who are in the running and who you need to surpass. My run was competing with Henrik Lundqvist, and Carey Price. This can help if you're wondering where you stand.
