NHL Hockey '94, called just NHL '94 in the US cover, is a sequel (or update) to NHLPA Hockey '93. This time the game has full NHL branding, and aims to be a bit more realistic than its predecessors. It was also released for the Sega Mega-CD.

Gameplay

Notably fighting was removed from this game by request of the NHL. It would return in NHL 96. A new addition to this game is the ability of players getting injured.

This game also supports EA's 4 Way Play device for up to three or four player games.
