Brett Hull Hockey is an ice hockey-themed sports game developed by Radical Entertainment and released for the Nintendo Entertainment System by Accolade in 1994. A potential Sega Genesis version was cancelled. The game received a sequel, Brett Hull Hockey '95 the following year.

The announcer is Former ABC Sports and current NBC Sports announcer Al Michaels who announces Brett Hull by name, but other players by their jersey number. There is exhibition mode, regular season mode, and playoff mode. There are also options to turn on/off music, sound effects, and the pre-game coaching mode can turn a losing team into a winning team and vice versa.

Unreleased Atari Jaguar port[edit]

In late 1994 Atari acquired the license from Accolade,[1] and Brett Hull NHL Hockey was listed for release on Jaguar cartridge and Jaguar CD in 1995.[2] Though the cartridge version was reviewed in the May 1996 issue of Next Generation,[3] neither version was ever released during the Jaguar’s commercial run. To avoid licensing issues the name of the prototype was changed and given a homebrew release as “Jaguar Hockey”. It was released on cartridge by B&C Computervisions and on CD by Jaguar Sector II. Differences in the cartridge and CD versions include, but are not limited to, bug-fixes as well as full-motion-video cut-scenes.[4]
