NHL Hockey 94 (Genesis)
|NHL Hockey 94|
NHL 94 is the third installment in the EA Sports NHL series.
If the game ever crashes, it'll display an exception handler at the top of the screen.
Leftover NHLPA 93 Graphics
The Pro Set Trading Cards logo is partially stored within the pause menu graphics. Some of the tiles; however, were overwritten.
The game was later re-released as a bonus feature in the PlayStation 2 version of NHL 06. Due to legal issues, a few changes had to be made:
The High Score Productions/Mark Lesser screen was removed.
"Licensed by Sega Enterprises Ltd." was removed, and the text does not scroll down to reveal the credits.
As the NHL didn't have the rights to use their name and logo at the time NHL 06 was released, the Hartford Whalers are instead called the Hartford Canes (a nod to their post-1997 relocation as the Carolina Hurricanes) with a fictional logo based on the Hurricanes' to match (they do keep the Whalers' colors, however).
Hi, I'm Ron Barr for EA Sports. Welcome to a sold out (arena). Tonight's National Hockey League game features the (visiting team) and (home team).
Welcome to (home team's city). Tonight's National Hockey League game features the (visiting team) and (home team).
Ron Barr was removed, the text box was moved up, and the text itself was changed.
All players were replaced with generic ones, and all player pictures were replaced with silhouettes.
The data for each team includes the name of their arena. Because of the changes to the matchup screen text (as noted above), all arena names are never seen. Oddly, quite a few of them were changed despite this. Those are denoted in the table below:
|Anaheim Mighty Ducks||Pond||Park|
|Buffalo Sabres||Memorial Auditorium||Buffalo Auditorium|

Team Data oddities
- The data for the Dallas Stars is located in between the data for the Los Angeles Kings and the data for the Montreal Canadiens. This is a remnant of the Stars' 1993 relocation from Minnesota.
- The data for the Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets are in reverse order (Winnipeg's is before Washington's).
- The data for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks and Florida Panthers are located after the data for the Washington Capitals. This is likely because they were expansion teams that year, so their data was simply added to the end. Additionally, Florida's data comes before Anaheim's.
