Trivia

Development

Actua Ice Hockey 2 was originally intended to be Fox Sports Hockey, with Gremlin developing the title for Fox Interactive, who had obtained an NHL license. Fox pulled out within the first year of the project, and the decision was made (much to the chagrin of some of its developers) to carry on without an NHL license. For this reason, the league became the Gremlin Hockey League, player names were changed by substituting vowels and player faces were selected at random.

References

If you carefully look at some of the managers' suits, some of them have real NHL team logos in them, and more: all photos belong to real NHL players - look in the "Editing the lines" screenshot: Karolev (Korolev) is Shawn McEachern and Borezin (Berezin) is Theo Fleury.
