NHL 96 is an ice hockey video game developed by Electronic Arts Canada. It was released on October 26, 1995 and was the successor to NHL 95.

Game cover

For the first time in the NHL series, two players are on the front cover of NHL 96.

Features

Fighting is reintroduced in NHL 96, as are major and double minor penalties. The PC version is the first game in the series to have multiple cameras, using EA's Virtual Stadium technology, which uses 2D sprites on a 3D environment. The cover of the game features Steve Yzerman and Scott Stevens, and Get Ready For This by 2 Unlimited is used as the game's main theme. The game includes the Quebec Nordiques, even though the team had moved and become the Colorado Avalanche before the start of the 1995–96 season. NHL 96 was the last game in the series that included two players on the cover in North America. Since NHL 97, the games' covers have single players. Fighting was also brought back which included three new animations for a fight ending; knocking the losing player on his back, injuring him to cause him to squirm on the ice, and by pulling the losing player to the ice with the jersey over his head while being able to still throw punches. Game modes include: exhibition, season and playoffs.
