For those who like Hockey managerial type games, there is a new one that is coming out.

There's more information about it in the email that I got, but can't find as much on the website. Too impatient to continue looking.

If there's any NHL14 fans on the PS3, feel free to add me kylefreadrich43.

I'm starting an EASHL team with some friends from another site and the more the merrier.

I guess I'll bump this thread for an interesting article about the developer of that classic, NHL 94.

Retired developer who created ‘NHL ‘94’ video game in Maine barn reflects on career

EA apparently took note of Lesser’s work and in 1993 asked him to develop “ NHL ‘94” — the fourth installment of another sports video game franchise.

Lesser accepted the offer.

Then living in Brooklin, Lesser started programming the hockey game. One problem: he knew nothing about hockey.

“I’d never watched a hockey game, I didn’t know anything about it,” Lesser said.

Early in the process, Lesser visited EA staffers in California, who took him to an Anaheim Mighty Ducks game. Most people working on the NHL franchise at the time were rabid hockey fans.

“I didn’t know what the heck they were talking about. I just smiled a lot,” Lesser said.

Thanks for posting that. I have to say, that game was part of the reason I became a rabid hockey fan. I grew up watching the playoffs on ESPN in the 80s (the Edmonton Oilers dynasty, the Broadstreet Bullies, Bob Probert and the Red Wings). But right after the Lightning were born I was asked to participate in my first fantasy league. I didn't know the NHL that well, so I bought that game, got absolutely addicted and (along with increased TV watching and a lot of cheap tickets at the old Philly Spectrum) I learned the league inside and out. Good times.

Yeah, it was pretty much the start of my fandom as well.
