    UPDATE: Possibly updated to no longer work - based on RowdyReptile15's comment and no one unlocking in the last few days, I am thinking this might be the case but others let me know if it does work

    Note I know I don't have this achievement unlocked but I am playing the game on PS4 so you will see my linked PSN profile has the trophy

    This achievement is currently pretty easy and I would highly recommend doing it now before any adjustments are made that might break this. Currently some players have tried other ways to unlock it such as winning everything with a bad team but noticed that the Minnesota Wild seem to win the trophy nearly if not every time. As such, do not expect to do this during another save file. All you have to do is start a franchise mode as Minnesota and sim the full season. I did not do anything besides sim. There were some popups and this is how I personally did it but I am sure there is flexibility:
    - Waiver players - I claimed one but generally ignored
    - Trades - I accepted a few but mostly ignored. I noticed players lost morale when you traded a player away so I only accepted ones where I was not giving up any
    - Scouts or any other messages - ignored

    The team should do very well in regular season. I believe mine got 47 wins and 6 extra time losses to win the division. I was eliminated first round playoffs and that did not matter. After elimination you should get the option to sim to draft day and during that sim it will pause to tell you who won the Stanley Cup and this should pop at that point.

    GooseBoxLive+1, can confirm this works. I didn't accept any trades and just simmed the whole season. I snuck in to the playoffs as the final wild card and the achievement popped as soon as the Stanley Cup finals were over.

    StevannoWorked for me as well. Difference for me was I did load up with some deadline deals but tried to keep it to picks and prospects moved for big names. As long as the Wild get in from simming, it should work based on everything said

    RowdyReptile15Didn’t work for me - simmed 4 different seasons and nothing

    Mental Jay@RowdyReptile15 I'm sorry to hear, perhaps they have adjusted something. I see no recent winners in the past few days on Xbox and Playstation. I've updated the solution to reflect this could be the case
