NHL Draft, Historical?

I started a 1970 season and completed the season. I was wondering what happened to the draft. The game just puts the players on the team. Guy Lafleur, Marcel Dionne, Rick Martin and so forth. How do you get the game to allow a player to draft and AI to draft the players? I made trades based thinking I could draft players.

Do you play historical challenge or "normal" historical mode ? if historical challenge then there is no draft i think.

It means you didn't check the option to Generate Rookies at Age 17. Instead Rookies appears on what teams actually got them.

I believe I did. I created some other historical files and the rules say no to draft players.

If you didn't get a draft and the players just appeared on their historical teams, the line "Draft Rookies/Generate Rookies at Age 17" definitely wasn't checked during setup; that's the only way to shut the draft off. Make sure you have that boxed checked if you want an annual draft of the incoming rookies.

There are drafts in the historical challenges. The TC didn't check the right box when he started his game.

I restarted the season with the Draft Rookies/Generate Rookies at Age 17: checked. No questions this time. What is the date of the draft? It is not noted in the events. The Rookies are present in the search button and league front office. Scouts are see them as free agents when they perform scouting duties. I am just asking to ensure that I will have a draft and I do not sim pass the date. Thanks

Draft is usually at the end of June, however the draft moves to early July when Expansion teams join, which could be the case.

Drafts are only in June in modern games, in historical games the draft (if the option is enabled) is always early July because the new players are generated on June 30th.
