According to Kotaku, a leak has revealed that NHL 11 will include the entire Canadian Hockey League and will include the QMJHL, WHL and OHL, the top tier of Canadian Junior Hockey. This will likely expand the deep dynasty mode greatly, as a whole new level of minor leagues and playoffs as well as scouting will be included in the game.
It’s unknown whether NHL will eventually expand it into its own dynasty mode where you own your own team as Brent Sutter and Patrick Roy currently do and build it as one would do in dynasty mode. The full extent is yet to be known, but most likely this year it will mainly be used for a season/playoffs mode a la the Swedish and Russian leagues currently in the game. It will also likely be a part of dynasty mode but we’ll just have to wait until it’s released in September
