Out of the Park Developments has announced that the 1.03 patch for their hockey strategy sim Franchise Hockey Manager 2014 is now available.
The patch, which will not have any adverse affects on save files includes the following changes:

Fixed crashing when adding players to a trade, or moving scroll bar while looking at trade offers.
Should now be possible to move the starting goalie to G2 position when switching goalies during a game.
Rights issue when re-signing your own players resolved, should be possible to do this properly now.
Swedish and Finnish relegation should work correctly now.
Goalie shutouts and W-L-T now recorded properly.
Computer-run teams should no longer make trade requests to the player that offer nothing in return.
Custom mode inaugural drafts now scheduled for August to prevent conflicts with league formats that have an early start date.
Custom mode games no longer crash on June 30-July 1 of first season (was due to improper setup of draft rules in nonplayable leagues.)
Inaugural draft in custom mode should no longer force user to choose goalies first (this may occur in regular draft mode, though - discovered too late in testing to fix on this patch.)
Ability rating will now be recalculated after editing a player.
Now possible to start games as St. Louis (had been crashing because Missouri hadn't been assigned to a scouting region.)
Entry drafts should now occur properly in in historical mode.
Expansion drafts should now occur properly in in historical mode.
Historical mode will not crash on transition from June 30, 1979 to July 1, 1979.
Newly generated players outside Canada and US no longer always getting their national capital as a birthplace.
Players serving bench minors no longer get 2 minutes added to their PIM.
Mental ratings for post-prime players in historical mode stop collapsing to very low (1-2) values.
Staff portraits enabled.
Initial import of players in historical mode with generate at 17 turned off should now include only correct players for that option.
"Generic Leagues" description is now "Other Leagues."
Text/grammar errors in some news items corrected, new items added.
Neverending penalties in match engine fixed (caused by bug allowing already-penalized players to receive a second penalty.)
Should no longer be possible to sign "late-birthdate" (Sept. 16-Dec. 31) 18-year-olds before they're drafted
Team entry draft previews now "written by" amateur scout instead of assistant coach.
Should be fewer "Cy Young" players (high number of goals, low assists), may require a little more tuning.
"Return to Start Screen" feature removed from Mac version (should have been taken out at release, it causes crashes when trying to start new games after using it and needs more work before it's stable.)
Incorrect starting cap hits for some NHL players corrected.
Recent NHL roster moves added.
Starting ability of 17-year-olds in historical mode modified downward slightly.
Award winners should now be storied in league history correctly.
There are some partial fixes that have jury-rigged some issues. Gamers can read about them on the official forum .
