About Eastside Hockey Manager

The world’s greatest hockey management simulation makes a dramatic return.

Eastside Hockey Manager is the most realistic, in-depth and immersive simulation of hockey management available, giving you the chance to manage club or country in any of the world’s top hockey-playing nations.

EHM allows you to take full control of your roster – you decide who to sign, who to trade and who to draft. You assemble the perfect coaching team and then, with everything in place, you can choose to either employ a head coach to guide your team from behind the bench, or take control of the coaching duties yourself. Whichever you choose, you can follow the action ‘live’ or watch the game highlights afterwards through the realistic ‘top down’ 2D game engine.

You’ve always known that you have what it takes to lead your franchise to hockey glory, and with Eastside Hockey Manager you have the chance to prove that.
