  1. Late last month, I was a guest on Ron Barr's radio show, Sports Byline USA. We talked about his involvement with the early EA Sports games, particularly NHL '94. We also discussed a certain website dedicated to said video game http://puckjunk.com/2019/01/03/sports-byline-usa-the-nhl-94-video-game-sports-trading-cards/
  2. I just published an interview with Michael J. Sokyrka, who did much of the music for NHL '94. You can see it here: http://puckjunk.com/2018/12/21/interview-michael-j-sokyrka-nhl-94-music-composer/ Thanks for reading!

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    Thanks. Looks like it definitely was a bug in the Genesis version. I have the SNES version, but never played enough games to get potentially get to 128 points. And I'm not going to try anytime soon, either.

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    I heard that in NHL '95, if you played full season mode and your team got to 128 points in the standings that it would roll back to 0 points, putting your team last. Is that true, and if so, on what versions of the game?

    Fighting in NHL '95?

    We all know that there was no fighting in NHL '94, but when did fighting come back into the EA NHL games? Was it with '95, or '96? (The manual for for NHL '95 for SNES does not have instructions on how to fight, but the manual for NHL "96 for SNES does.) I'm curious to know when fighting "came back" on both SNES and Genesis. Thank you!
  7. Was "Road to the Cup Hockey '94" ever mentioned in any magazines back in 1993?
  8. Hi again everyone. As I mentioned before, Beckett Hockey magazine cut my "sidebar" conversation with you all in my NHL '94 article. First off, here is a PDF of the article. It is old enough now that my editor doesn't mind if I circulate it: http://www.saljbarry.com/articles/roenick.pdf Second, I ended up using my "sidebar" conversation with the kind NHL '94 forum members who spoke with me. I published it on my website, Puck Junk. However, I removed everyone's last name. You can read that article here: http://puckjunk.com/2013/12/19/fondest-memories-nhl-94/ Again, I want to give my gratitude for those who took the time to speak with me. Sal
  9. Here is my update on the Beckett article. It is bad news, unfortunately. For my NHL '94 article, I was actually able to conduct an interview with Jeremy Roenick. My conversation with him was about video games, espeically NHL '94. That became the focus of my article, becase it is not every day that I get to talk with an NHL legend. Thus, I also wrote a sidebar (a short companion article) to accompany my interview with Roenick. This is where I used my conversations with everyone who replied to my initial request. \But the sidebar had to be cut due to space limitations. This is the first time in 10 articles that I've had something cut. I'm really sorry about this. I am going to write a few more pieces about NHL '94 (one for my blog, one for another sports site). I will contact everyone indivdually and make sure it is OK that I use my conversations with each of you for this new article, since it will not be printed in Beckett, but elsewhere. Sal

    So, who should I thank for updating the Wikipedia article?

    October 1993 was when the NES version was released.

    Oh man, I am having problems viewing the 2nd and 4th images. Any chance you could email those to me: sjb AT puckjunk DOT com

    NHL '94 release date

    Awesome. I'll have to see if I can track down some old EGM magazines, or maybe an issue of Sega Visions from that time.

    NHL '94 release date

    My belief is that the SNES and Genesis version were released around the same time in the Fall.
