NHL 2002 is a video game released by EA Sports on September 17, 2001. It is the predecessor to NHL 2003. The game's cover man is Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux.


Bill Clement is replaced by Don Taylor for NHL 2002. Taylor's quirky and often slapstick commentary style drew mixed reception from fans of the game.

After September 11, 2001, a patch was created that changed the image shown on the loading screen before New York Rangers games. Originally, it had been the World Trade Center. It was changed to the Statue of Liberty.

This was the only NHL series title developed for the Game Boy Advance.[1]
