Go to the customization screen, and edit the roster of a player within the CHL. You'll want to choose a player who is 17 (draft eligible) & has no salary listed (means they haven't been drafted). I went to the London Knights and chose Robert Thomas, and made him an 88 overall.

What you'll want to do is start a new franchise, I chose the Penguins due to the amount of star players you can trade for the 1st overall pick the following season. Just sweeten the deal to the team with the first overall pick and draft your player that you boosted the rating of. Once drafted, sign him to a contract, go to your roster screen and call him up to the NHL, I placed him on the first line to maximize his point totals. Just keep simulating and he'll eventually reach level 90.

It is possible if you're trying to stack achievements, to get the Maximum promo's here too. The Penguins have a decent amount of spending money, so just keep upgrading your building. Once you have 5 stars, go into your budget and manually set the promotions to max, and lower your building spending, and you can set advertising to minimum.

Go to Rosters on the main menu, and then to Edit Player.

Scroll over to WHL and find Nolan Patrick on Brandon Wheat Kings.

Edit all his attributes to 89 ovr. You'll see he actually becomes 91 ovr after doing that. Just subtract 1 point from each attributes at the top of the list to 88 until his overall goes down to 89. Stop. Back out.

Start a new Franchise with Chicago or Pittsburgh and sim the first season, turn off all the notifications you would normally receive in Settings to make it go quicker. I recommend turning on Auto Sign Free agents and Trade Difficulty to Easy. Send your pro scout out for 6 weeks at a time.

After the first season, depending on your draft position, you will head into the 2017 draft in the off season.

You may have to rip yourself off (trade Crosby or Toews) to get the 1st ovr pick but once you have it, just draft Nolan Patrick #1 and sim to the Preseason.

After you sign him to his Entry level deal, during the initial re-sign phase, he will eventually grow to 90+ naturally. Popped for me during the first summer.
