    Related to LG
    • Added a new Drop-in Feature where a group of users can play a private unranked game through the Drop-in Dressing Room lobby
    • Dressing Room Leaders can enter a 4-6 digit private matchmaking ID to matchup privately against another group using the same ID (This system is LIVE now http://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/index.php?threads/nhl-17-private-matchmaking-id.245780/)
    • Added the ability to select and view the Player Summary screen from the disconnect and end of game pause menus (this means we will end support for the old NHL 16 screen shots that have player names)
    • Not in the patch notes but i'm told when you scroll the player summery screen, it doesn't fix the 5 columns to the left like it used to, and perhaps we can only require 2 screen shots for the OCR. But we will test this when the patch is out New OCR Changes http://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/index.php?threads/ocr-changes-nhl-17-patch-2-0.245827/

    Full note list below

    GAMEPLAY:
    • Added 11 new goal celebrations to the creation zone.
    • Fixed an issue where a user goalie would get stuck after getting hit while in butterfly.
    • Fixed an issue where after an icing the puck it would sometimes cause human players to sit on the bench for the next play.
    • Fixed some issues where a goalie would get stuck in a post lean away from the post.
    • Added new post lean saves for more coverage.
    • Improved goalie post lean logic so goaltenders to try and make saves that keep them sealed on the post to prevent short side goals.
    • Fixed an issue where some signature stances caused the goalie’s glove hand to push back behind their pad when holding the puck idle on their stick.
    • Fixed issues with shot animations when in close to the net.
    • Updated User goalie save logic to help them move into a save when they are requesting to push/move first.
    • Added functionality to allow goalies to rotate more when coming off the post from VH to butterfly to make them more square to the puck.
    • Updates to User goalie save logic on wraparounds based on requested motion.
    • Updates to User goalie save delay when in good position to make a blocking save.
    • Fixed an issue where a goalie would sometimes drop to butterfly when in possession of the puck on a User requested pass attempt.
    • Improved the reliability of one timers by adding quicker snapshots for situations where there isn't enough time to take a full slapshot.
    • Fixed an issue where precision skating would sometimes conflict with a loose puck deke attempt at a slow speed. Now if you have your stick out a deking position it prioritizes the deke request.
    • Updated goalie logic so that goalies will hold their near post on pass attempts near the net to prevent easy short side goals.
    • Updated goalie logic for softer shots on net so that they look to pick it up rather than make a save.
    • Various crash fixes.
    • General stability updates across all modes.

    Thank god for no more pucks squeezing in even when against the post.

    Updated User goalie save logic to help them move into a save when they are requesting to push/move first.

    Animations goals may finally be going bye bye xD

    Haha ya I've scored some goals before I was amazed went in. Top shelf short side clappers even when the goalie is in stand up post hold. I thought that was hilarious. Even with perfect aim there should not be a hole there.

    Looking forward to these changes. Thank you for everything you've done to help make it happen.

    But...but....

    Stingrays get alternate jerseys, Charlotte does not.
