NHL 2001 is a video game released by Electronic Arts on September 28, 2000. It is the successor to NHL 2000. Add-on Elitserien 2001 was released on March 8, 2001 that added Swedish and Finnish hockey league's and teams to the game.
Jim Hughson remains as play-by-play announcer in the game, with Bill Clement joining as an analyst for a second time, debuting in the previous edition, NHL 2000. This is also the first NHL game to appear on the PlayStation 2 and also to include Latvia and Ukraine to the 18 national teams first featured in NHL 98 (Only available in the PC and PlayStation 2 versions). There is also a brand new feature called the Momentum Bar, which goes to the team who has scored goals, done big hits, etc.
Several mistakes are made by Hughson and Clement during gameplay such as saying that a team is leading when they really aren't. For example, "Great Britain now leads 2-1" when, in reality Great Britain is losing 1-2.
