When playing NHL 23 Be a Pro, being the best of the best is the goal throughout a player's entire career, and that starts with getting drafted first overall.

How to Get Drafted First Overall in NHL 23 Be a Pro

Players have a few options when starting out in NHL 23. They can choose to start in Europe, the CHL Memorial Cup or in the NHL. If you choose the NHL, you won't be getting drafted, rather signing as a free agent with the team of your choosing. This allows for players to actually pick the team they want rather than see where things fall.

To get drafted first overall, you need to make sure that you are playing well on the ice. Putting up goals and getting assists while also following along with what your coach is asking you to do in game is the best way to get drafted high.

It is not just about winning on the ice, players also need to be good with their interviews. There are options for each response in an interview that offers a team, star or persuade response. If you are looking to get drafted high, picking a team answer will increase your score.

If you are not the best at scoring or setting up goals, the other way to increase your chance of getting drafted first overall is by increasing your skill tree. Players need to complete objectives and unlock trait points to get a higher rating in the game, which in turn could help land you a better chance at getting drafted first overall.

Once you get drafted, the fun begins as players start racing for career accolades like the most goals or points in league history. Of course, you can always play online modes with friends on other consoles.
