This achievement appears to be unobtainable at the moment. If it were obtainable, this would be how to do it.

The first part of getting this achievement is simply starting a HUT team. That's pretty straightforward and will be done for you once you select Hockey Ultimate Team from the main menu.

Once you're team is ready, it's up to you to play and, hopefully win, some online games. If you're in for the long hall, the best way to build your team is to play offline for awhile first. Use the players you get in your intro pack to win a few low level, offline tournaments and build up a collection of pucks as you go. Use those to buy Peewee packs. Any rare or exceptional players you get should be saved for the time being. Once your team starts looking a little bit more like an NHL team, players averaging in the 80's, you can try your luck online.

To actually qualify for a monthly playoff is easier than it seems. Their are three different levels to qualify in and it doesn't take very many wins to make it into the lowest bracket. There is no definitive number, but you can check your current ranking in your stats from the main HUT menu. A safe number to aim for on that leaderboard is 600 or more. Rumor is that the top 5k players on the leaderboards get in so some months are harder than others. There may also be other factors involved, so nothing is a given when it comes to getting in. Starting on the 1st of every month, are the HUT playoffs. You MUST sign into HUT and select the playoff option to see if you qualified. If you do not do this, you will not receive the achievement even if you are the best player in the world.

For those who don't mind boosting, simply match up with a friend in some tournaments or ranked matches and win some games. This is faster to do than it initially seems. The player who is getting the win needs to score a goal and then the second player can quit out as soon as the clock hits 17:59. When you win around 10 games with no loses, you should have no issues getting into the playoffs at the beginning of the next month. You can always return the favor for the following month. This is best done with as many different players as possible. The folks at EA know people boost so multiple wins against the same opponent begin to count for less.

As an ongoing project, I'd like people to submit their online leaderboard points when they made the playoffs so that we can try to generate a number.
