How to win the NHL’s fastest-growing league
A new type of cheat engine that simulates how the ice breaks down on a hockey rink is being used to boost the growth of the NHL, the league’s governing body said Thursday.
The “cheat engine” is being developed by a company called EA Sports and used to simulate the ice breaking down on NHL ice rinks at the end of games, according to a statement.
It works on a simple algorithm, said Jeff Pachter, president of EA Sports North America.
It looks for the shortest possible time for a player to break through the puck and make a break through, and then it compares the length of that break to the time the puck will take to travel from the center of the rink to the point where it breaks through.
The team that created the engine says it has been in use since the start of the season.
It will not be available until the end, Pachters statement said.
The engine has been developed for the NHL by EA Sports in cooperation with the University of Michigan, Pash, and the NHLPA, Pish said in the statement.
The engine is being made available to all 30 NHL teams as part of a pilot program that began in February, according with the statement from Pish.
The cheat engine was developed by EA and the university, which has a long history in hockey technology.
The company has also built and tested its own technology.
