Some of these problems have solutions but some of them are not yet fixed, unfortunately. The developers have promised that they are working on solutions so we are hopeful that these issues will be fixed soon, With that said, let’s get started.

NHL 22 Bugs, Glitches and Known Issues

Players all around the world are reporting many issues in NHL 22 that they are facing. Some of these issues are small, while others are quite problematic. With that said, here are all the bugs and known issues in NHL 22. Check out the November patch notes to see if any of the previous issues got fixed or not.

The following list of issues is updated as on November 9, 2021:

NHL Stuck on Syncing Screen

Many players are complaining that they cannot play NHL 22 online due to syncing issues as well as lag. Not only that, the game shows an error even if you are in-game due to the syncing issues.

Cannot Edit HUT Lineup

Editing your Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) lineup is an extremely important part of NHL 22. Unfortunately, some players reported that they are getting an error saying changes could not be saved. This is extremely frustrating because all your changes do not get saved.

Other players reported that their game crashed altogether when changing their HUT lineup. We hope that this issue gets fixed soon because it is hindering a lot of players.

Numbers not Showing on Jersey

A few of the numbers on player jerseys are either not appearing or the entire jersey has the incorrect color scheme. Plus, the logos also seem to be missing. While this isn’t a huge problem, it still breaks immersion and can leave players distracted.

The Game Freezes

This is one of the most common issues that players are facing right now. NHL 22 freezes randomly for a few seconds and then resumes. However, sometimes the game even crashes after freezing. Not only that, NHL 22 sometimes remains frozen and you’ll have to restart the game.

Game Settings not Saved

Like the HUT team settings not getting saved, players have reported that they cannot save their game settings. Whenever you change any settings – like the camera settings – the game refuses to save it. Instead, it either gives an error or the changes get reset.

That about does it for our guide about the NHL 22 bugs/known issues. If you are facing any one of these issues, you should report them on the EA bug report section. This will help the bug get fixed as soon as possible. Let us know in the comments below if you are facing these issues and how is your experience with NHL 22.

  1. Nhl 22 franchise mode crash after goal. This has happened me a 4-5 times per day. Players just stay celebrating and game won’t continue after that. I have to quit the match and then game is simulated. Not so nice.

  2. I am seeing sync issues, gets caught in a loop, offline. Single player career mode, sometimes stuck on the EA load logo, when syming off ice time, also after goals, gets stuck in a celebration loop, won’t progress. Happened on both ps4 and ps5 versions on the game, on a ps5 system
