The official page for the NHL2K20 roster addon for 2KHS 0.8 (NHL2K11).
= Introduction =
This NHL2K20 roster is for use with NHL2K11 for WII or on PC using Dolphin.
The roster is compatible and best used with the excellent 2KHS (2K Hockey Simulator) mod by DJNEO.
= Donation =
Many hours of work and free time have gone into this roster and the tools needed for it. The roster update is free but I have set up a paypal donation for those of you that feel that you want to give something back.
Remember to support DJNEO on Patreon as I would never have started this without his awesome work on the base game.
To donate, use paypal. Donate to firstname.lastname@example.org
