    Finally, got it after about 40+ different simulations.

    At first I tried just taking random teams like Blue Jackets, Ducks, Knights, etc....and simming the first three years. No avail. Random teams kept winning it Red Wings, Blackhawks, Canucks, Wild, Kings, Avalanche....

    Next I tried stacking the Golden Knights, I kept winning the cup and having 65+ win season. Nothing.

    Next I tried a method someone put out for PS4 trophies on this achievement. The method was as follows:
    1) Go to the roster on the main hub and stack the Ottawa Senators since they were awful last year.
    2) Start up a new classic franchise picking the Senators, you can turn off whatever settings you want just make sure salary cap is off.
    3) Fired the head coach, promoting the AHL assistant coach (C-; might vary) to the NHL head coach.
    4) Sim to post playoffs when the awards are giving out in June.
    5) Bleep bloop, if not rinse and repeat the 2019-2020 season.

    I tried the method above multiple times, but never got to step 5 and was noticing the Ducks for some reason kept getting the Jack Adams trophy the first year. I tried again, this time I left the stacked Ottawa team and picked the Ducks and never fired my coach. On my third attempt at the 2019-2020 season (restart each time, not going to the next season. My Ducks had about 40+ win, got second in the division and we went 1-4 in the first round of the playoffs and it popped June 1 after the Stanley Cup champions message popped up.

    This seems to be a pretty luck based and random achievement, but I wanted to share the methods I attempted and maybe others will have better luck or get it on the first attempt.

    Another method I saw but never attempted was this one: Create a new franchise with the 32nd expansion team. Pick that team and win the Stanley Cup.

    Achievement seems to be entirely random. I've done about 20 seasons simulated from start to finish, I've had record-setting seasons of 62+ wins where I won the Stanley Cup, I've had teams completely over-achieve and make it to the playoffs despite no reason to do so, I've won the cup with the 32nd team and still haven't won the Adams trophy. It seems to be an achievement that's as much on luck as everything else although from the multiple seasons that I've seen the teams that win it the most are teams who aren't juggernauts in the standings normally.

    New Jersey, Carolina, Las Vegas, Edmonton, Vancouver, Buffalo have won the Adams trophy the most in my simulations.

    EDIT: Couple answers to questions posed by others.
    1: The trophy is handed out after the season is over. I simulated until I got the popup that said "Team A won the Stanley Cup, Team B won the Calder Cup" from there go into the statistics area and go under awards and it'll show the most recent winner there.

    2: I turned off owner mode, turned off morale and fog of war, made it easier to make snap decisions on trades and not have to worry about chemistry playing a big role. Outside of that I simulated through and skipped pretty much any popup. Took about 5 minutes to simulate through a full season.

    Jon Clink 96I am curious of this as well. I just finished a season with 65 wins and no achievement.

    GBCheeseheadI think I figured out my own answers, it looks like in the month of June they give out the award. If you go to the main hub of the Franchise mode > Team leader (top row - middle box) > Awards > LT to select individual awards > Jack Adams Award.

    iTz Canada EhhI've noticed Vancouver and Las Vegas a lot as well and those are the ones I've been trying with. I was hoping there would be some way to ensure it but oh well, back to simulating seasons again. At least it doesn't take too long to sim through, especially when you disable notifications. I'm assuming you just used the default Franchise mode settings?

    I tried the other guides posted here and was unsuccessful. I felt like I was wasting time trying to get lucky and hope that my coach was chosen for the Jack Adams.

    I found this guide, got it first try. Lots of other people reporting that they got it first try too. Shoutout to Kiccic from the PSN Profiles community for posting it ( https://forum.psnprofiles.com/topic/79303-any-tips-for-coach... ):

    1. Use 11.10.2019 rosters. [October 10th, 2019]
    2. New franchise
    3. Pick Buffalo Sabres
    4. Move your team with other week teams to Pacific division. (I put Senators in Meteopolitian div. With all good Teams, just in case:) )
    5. Waivers on, cap space on, couch edit lines on, Owner mode off, Morale off, cpu trades off, all notifications off, injury off...
    6. Do nothing with your staff, just sim entire season. If lucky, and you are in top3, in your division, you will get Jack. Adams trophy.
    Hope it brings you success!

    TheJeffCoteWish I could upvote this to the top solution. Worked on the third try. Seemed to help to also make the other western division weak as well.
