So it appears that with one of the most recent updates they have changed this to actually be someone that your team has drafted DURING your reign as GM. I tried the ways listed here with Duchene, Mackinnon, Crosby, Krejci and no luck at all. Started a new franchise today with the sole purpose of trying out using a player my team drafted.

You can do this with any team, I did it with the Anaheim Ducks. Start the season, turn off injuries to streamline the process. and sim up to about the day before the trade deadline, during the sim set your scout to scout the "OHL" for 6 weeks at a time. Before the trade deadline check the standings and note the bottom 3 teams. (In my sim it was Edmonton, Winnipeg and Arizona) Do whatever it takes to get the first round pick from the bottom 3 at the trade deadline. The easiest way I found was to trade 2 future first rounders and a 2nd rounder and it usually gets the job done. Once you have the bottom 3 teams first round picks. Sim the rest of the season up to the draft. (DO NOT SIM PAST THE DRAFT) Once at the draft, but not past it. Check the standings again, the main thing you want is to ensure you have the #1 overall pick. I had the #1, #2 and #4 picks in my sim. Trade to make sure you have the #1 overall and at least 2 other top 10 picks. Sim past the draft

What you want to look for after the draft is the contracts screen, look for a player that you drafted that has Elite, or Franchise potential. You SHOULD have drafted Connor McDavid which is who I ended up with. Set Connor McDavid (Or your elite or franchise prospect) to your top line (As the Ducks I had a top line of McDavid-Getzlaf-Perry) now sim through the next couple seasons. It took until my 2018-19 season for McDavid to hit 91.

Do not get discouraged at the start of the season if the achievement does not pop. Sim through the season until after the playoffs. Once the playoffs end, continue to sim until the screen that says the upcoming salary cap information comes up. Once this comes up, hit okay and the achievement should pop.

Again the achievement pops AFTER the first season that the player your team drafted has reached 90, not as they actually hit 90.

All in all it took me simming to June 25th 2019 to get the achievement. Was a ton of waiting. But hope this helps some people get the achievement as I know it's been bugging me as the last achievement I needed to unlock.
