TL:DR Version:

You probably don't need a guide for this, play as a forward and score a bunch of goals in the regular season. Just change the sliders if you need help scoring goals. Keep track of your goals and when you get to 50 the achievement will unlock.

See below for more detailed info.

This achievement will likely be easy enough to complete through normal game play along with all of the other Be A Pro achievements.

If you're like me and just want to focus on this achievement only and want to get it done quickly, I was able to get this done in only 2 games played.

The easiest way to do this is to start a new Be A Pro career. I started my career as a Center, and I chose to start in the NHL and I chose the Pittsburgh Penguins as my team. (this will probably come in handy if you continue on toward the Stanley Cup achievement)

Once your career begins, you'll start in the preseason. I simulated all of the games (without playing a single one) and I was given a starting position on the Penguins NHL team. (Be sure that the simming penalty is off)

I went into the settings and changed all of the sliders to be in my favor, this makes the CPU goalies and defense very bad and makes your player very accurate and fast. Also be sure to set the period length to 20 minutes. Remember you'll only be playing when your player is on the ice and can sim all of the bench time, so each period will likely be about 5 minutes of real time. I would also turn off icing and offsides to help as well. The offsides will allow you to be in the offensive zone before the puck and you can stay behind the defenders if needed. I also played on rookie difficulty.

Once this is done, as a center, win the faceoff each time, call for a pass back to you as you go up the middle of the ice between the defense, choose your shot and shoot it. Keep repeating the process and scoring goals as you go which shouldn't be hard.

Remember every time you score, you can glance up where the score is in the top left of the screen and it will show your players name as the goal scorer and the number after your name is the goals you've scored for the season. Once that number reaches 50 in the regular season, your achievement will unlock (and it will unlock mid-game).

At this point, you could choose to leave the sliders the way they are and sim the remaining games of your season up until the playoffs, you can also jump into games that are close and score a few goals in the 3rd period to get your team the win. This way you can get to the playoffs and sim/save your way to the Stanley cup.

Have fun!
