Team name displayed in the game does not come from the database. Instead the game uses the combination of team name/abbreviation to find the image of the team name on bluray disc. Even when textual rendering happens, the name comes from the localization file stored on bluray. When you change the name in DVD, the game can no longer find the image/localization entry so an empty space is displayed. For this reason, you should not change the name normally.

But when i create a custom team in the game, then exit the game and load the file using nhlview, changing the team name, starting game again and then loading the file, the new team name appears. So using it that way, makes it is possible to change a team name.

Custom team names obviously do not have a pre-programmed image or a text in a localization file. The only way the game can render a custom team name is using the string stored in the roster. That's why it works for custom teams.

I changed the team abbreviation to DIF in the editor and then the ingame name shows Djurgårdens IF.
same thing with CSKA = CSKA MOSKOW, SSK = Södertälje SK, MIK = Mora IK .
it seems like EA forgot to remove these names.
I use Nhl 13 roster on xbox 360
