How was NHL 94 included?

Were Hasek and the Czechs playing it in their dorm or something?

No it just showed how much Hockey was growing and gaining in interest in the 90's and how the video games enhanced that growth as many peoples first exposure to the NHL was thru those games.

I think it will be on again or available on Demand from NBCSN if you got it.

Skip Wins!

The fact: Jágr is known for his patriotism. So he had worn a uniform with the Czech Republic's ensign on the Vancouver Winter Olympics Games in 2010. Also Jágr always wears the number 68. The sportsman has worn it through his entire ice hockey career. He did it in honour of the Prague Revolution, occurred in Czechoslovakia in 1968. In this year his grandfather died in prison, where he was put for political views.
