Description

The second part in Electronic Arts' hockey series. It features the NHLPA license (so it has real player names), but not the NHL license (so it doesn't have NHL team names).

Gameplay is altered only slightly over the predecessor. Regular season and Playoff modes are available. Goalies have improved AI, there are more foul play options and the game now features detailed statistics.

Trivia

Controversy

The game cause a row between NHL/NHLPA and Electronic Arts after a page in the manual suggested injuring opponent players as a valid tactic, games having up to five fights and players bleeding when injured. To them, this was harmful to the sports image, and to keep both licenses EA removed fights and the red pixels next to the players' faces when injured in NHL Hockey 94, which turned out to be one of the biggest hits in the franchise.
