Franchise mode start draft crashes to xbox one home screen

★★★★ Novice

Product: NHL 17
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Summarize your bug: I just finished a season in the new franchise mode. I am up to the draft selection for the upcoming new season, however, each time I select start draft, the game crashes to the Xbox One home screen, quitting the game. I have tried the process numerous times, it crashes to the Xbox home screen each time. The auto draft feature works, however, I want to draft my players, as this is my favorite off-season feature. I have a created player on my franchise team (created custom player, moved player from free agents to nj devils via custom rosters, started franchise -- I have since turned the default rosters back to the Sept 9 default rosters).
How often does the bug occur?: Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves?: Load a custom roster with franchise mode. Win the Stanley Cup. Attempt to start draft.
What happens when the bug occurs?: The game crashes to the xBox One home/menu screen. Game ends abruptly.
What do you expect to see?: I hope to see the first draft selection.

Ive noticed similar draft/crashing issues have been recognized by ea moderators. I'm curious if this particular issue has been received by ea moderators, and if progress is being made towards resolving the issue. Again, Franchise is the only game mode I play in my very few hours of free time. I have not played the game over five days because of this issue, and would like a tuner set released so I can resume play.

Anyone heard of any progress on this issue? I'm stuck at the 2018 draft too, and it's been a week and a half since the original poster put this in. Franchise mode is the only thing I generally use this game for, so I currently have no reason to play until this issue is fixed.

I have not played in close to two weeks; there has been no acknowledgement made towards my initial or follow-up posts. I am very disappointed, as I am an annual ea nhl buyer. Next year I'll re-assess my willingness to preorder.
