The amount of talk that goes on here at theScore offices is incredible. One of the biggest topics that always seems to come up now and again is how good we were at NHL 94 back in the day. Ask anybody how good they were at this game, and I guarantee they’ll boast about their 9 goal comeback win late in the 3rd period, or their overtime win in Hartford. Well now it’s time to actually prove how good you are. Introducing theScore NHL 94 Tournament.

40 people in the office have signed up. A Super Nintendo has been here since last Friday, and I highly doubt it has been turned off since. Here are the rules that we have agreed upon.

  1. Period Length: 5 minutes
  2. Penalties: Off
  3. Line changes: Off
  4. Goalie: Automatic
  5. You can choose any team you want, but you MUST stick with said team throughout the entire tournament
  6. You may only edit your lines before the game starts. Once in-game, no edits
  7. If the game ends in a tie, you’ll go to overtime. If still tied, you go to a shootout.

Here’s the entry list. Some names you’ll recognize, some you won’t, but these are all great people who make up theScore. Over the next 72 hours, there’ll be a ton of trash talking and humble pie served between everybody in the office:


The tournament starts tomorrow, and finishes on Friday afternoon. Follow along with our tournament via our Twitter page, or using the #ScoreNHL94 hashtag on Twitter.

  1. Does Pinnacle have odds? A few names on there are tempting to throw down on…

  2. Oh man, I used to literally kill this game.

    Hire me as an intern and I’ll serve you all a slice of humble pie personally

    • I think everyone says the same thing when the words “NHL 94″ are mentioned. Should be interesting to see who’s for real, and who’s full of it come tomorrow.

      • If all goes well, you guys should consider making it an annual tournament. Good stuff, guys!

  3. Whatever you do, don’t put money on me. I may even just pick the Sens just so I can troll how bad they are.

  4. What is this and what do I have to do?

  5. I got next. This is kind of a sad-brag as opposed to a traditional brag, but I’m better at that game than I am at anything else I’ve ever done. Interpret that as you will.

  6. I’m going to have to cheer for Whittall. He cheers for the right team in hockey, likes good music (such as Dvorak’s 9th), and if he wins this he’ll forever be remembered for it, instead of completely messing up the 2011 Footy Show quiz…

  7. What a GREAT idea. I need to do this with all my buddies. I hope you guys put together some video for this. Even have a segment on air. That would be awesome. Good luck everyone.

  8. Goalie should be Manual, Auto Goalie isn’t good to play with… I play NHL ’94 online and Auto goalie is a must

  9. Great idea guys. That game rocks. If anyone is a big fan of NHL 94, they should check out http://www.nhl94.com

  10. Where is Ronaldo Papa in this?

  11. Toby will make you all humble and drop huge NHL 94 leg drop like hogan in bash beach wcw nwo good ole days #teamtoby or get out.

  12. I DID IT!!!!!!

    Lost in round 1

  13. As NHL ’94 SNES Fall Classic A League Champion, I’d like to invite the winner (and all competitors for that matter) to visit nhl94online.com or the forums at forum.nhl94.com. You guys should get involved in the online community and enter some leagues to see how you really stack up against the world’s best.

    It’s great to see that NHL ’94 is still loved by so many! (especially the SNES version!)

    I would also like to point out that mandatory Auto goalie is ridiculous.

    • Love the commitment, that’s a great thing y’all got going there. A ton of debate around the office of whether we should play it on Genesis or SNES.

  14. Auto goalie, really? You scrubs. Don’t make Ron Barr take off his rings and pimp slap you; turn on manual goalie.

  15. This is awesome….I’m envious. Wish I worked at The Score.

  16. we all know that the penguins kings and hawks should be off limits to use #lemeuix #gretzky #JR #effect
