The easiest way to get this achievement is to play as the class with the least expectations - the Enforcer. Rookie might be a tempting difficulty to play on for this, but in my experience on rookie your team dominates your opponents so much that you don't have many chances to increase your Defensive grade. So put in on pro, and find the coaches goals for you and try your best to complete them.

To increase offense, just make smart passes and set yourself up for one-timers. It's actually still pretty easy to score as an Enforcer on pro so if you put up 3+ points you should reach an "A" easily.

To increase defense, poke-check the puck away from attackers, block shots and disrupt passes. You should also stick to the highlighted zone shown with the guide on. This is the category you will likely get last, but it's still not that difficult as long as you don't allow the other team to score much.

To increase team-play get big hits and win fights, both of these things will be big for your team. Make sure to not spend too much time out on the ice, as long shifts detract from this grade. Also, if you play with shorter periods (I played on five minute ones) you don't go to the box for fighting, so you can easily fight the same person over and over again. Just make sure to be familiar enough with fighting that you win at least 3/4 of them.

You need to finish the game with "A-"s or higher for this to count.

This is WAY easier to unlock with a Playmaker centre.

The problem with Enforcer is your TEAM PLAY grade, it's much easier to just win faceoffs and with a centre playmaker for this achievement.

Like the other solution, I also highly recommend playing on "Pro" difficulty since the AI can still generate some decent plays and allow you to block shots and break up plays helping with your defense grade.

Offense grade shouldn't be hard, add more time to each period before the game in settings if you are having difficulty racking up points. Aim for 4 points or higher.

Team play grade, take quick shifts, hustle and try to win as many faceoffs as you can and DO NOT turn it over. Here's a great guide to help with faceoffs. Credit goes to TDI Hockey.

Get all three grades to at least A- , STOP worrying about offense after you hit A- in that category. At the end of the game don't QUIT if team play or defence is a B+ before the final buzzer, I noticed you get a slight boost to these sometimes depending on the outcome of the game and your +/-
