2 On 2 Open Ice Challenge is an ice hockey arcade game released by Midway Games in 1995. It was ported to PlayStation in 1996 as NHL Open Ice: 2 On 2 Challenge. The game would be similar to its arcade counterpart with exception to the fact that the Winnipeg Jets moved to Phoenix after the conclusion of the 1995-96 season, thus the Phoenix Coyotes replaced the Jets in the PlayStation port. Open Ice was released on PC for Microsoft Windows in 1997 featuring the same roster and teams as the PlayStation version. This game was released as an official licensed product of the National Hockey League Players Association.

Jack Haeger was lead game designer and an avid hockey player. The lead programmer was Mark Penacho, assisted by Bill Dabelstein. Sound design and music by Jon Hey. The skating sounds were recorded by Jon Hey at the Chicago Park District's only indoor ice rink, McFetridge Sports Center, which is just a block North of what was once Midway's Chicago studios. The announcer in the game is the famous voice of the Chicago Blackhawks' Pat Foley. If a team achieves "On-Fire" status (made famous initially by Midway's NBA Jam), Pat Foley's voice will occasionally announce: "Toasty", a reference to Mortal Kombat.
