The Quebec Nordiques spent 23 years on the ice between the WHA and NHL® before moving to Denver and becoming the Colorado Avalanche®. However, that didn’t stop Franchise Hockey Manager 5 producer Jeff Riddolls and community manager Adam from indulging in a “What if?” scenario by bringing the highest level of North American hockey back to the city.
Adam explains: “As with any game we create, we wanted to do something interesting and long term. Since was going to be our first Twitch stream game, we decided to take the opportunity to showcase many of the new features in FHM5, allowing us to start with an expansion team, realign the divisions (we moved Toronto to the powerhouse Central Division) and had Quebec join in their spot.”
He adds: “While I think there are many hockey fans who would love to see another team in Canada, Quebec was a natural fit, and I personally wanted to see what would happen if we moved Toronto back to the West.”
