This announcement came with a few others on December 9 and detailed that players would now be able to transfer their HUT 22 squad between platforms.

However, it isn't the easiest process and some players will need to be walked through it to make it slightly simpler, which is why we're here.

We'd like you to keep in mind that you can only perform an NHL 22 HUT transfer from PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S.


We'll go over more of the details of the HUT transfer below.

Requirements for an NHL 22 HUT Transfer

If you're planning on performing an NHL 22 HUT transfer, the first thing you'll need is a new system. So if you were on Xbox One, you'll need an Xbox Series X|S, same with PS4 to PS5.

There is actually another thing you'll need to make sure of and its that you haven't already made a HUT 22 squad on the system you plan to transfer your current gen team to. Otherwise it won't work.

Another requirement is that users can protect up to 20 player items and one coach in their current lineup and transfer those over to a new console.


Aside from those 20 player items and a single coach, everything else will be calculated and evaluated for determining the number of tradeable Packs to be rewarded in Hockey Ultimate Team on their new console.

How to perform the NHL 22 HUT Transfer

Now that you've made your selection of the 20 player items and coach you're planning on keeping, you can begin to perform the NHL 22 HUT transfer.

It's not a difficult process, but can be tough to navigate if you aren't sure what you're looking for as you perform it. It'll begin by going to your HUT screen on your new system.
