NHLPA Hockey '93 is a Mega Drive/Genesis and SNES ice hockey game developed by Park Place Productions and published by Electronic Arts Sports Network. It is the second installment of the NHL series and the first to be released on SNES.
Included is a single-game exhibition mode and a playoff mode (single-elimination or best-of-7), wherein the winner collects a trophy similar to the Stanley Cup.
Unlike NHL Hockey, NHLPA Hockey has a license from the NHLPA, but not the NHL. The game includes mostly complete rosters and all 24 teams from the 1991-92 NHL season, including the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning and Ottawa Senators. Because the game lacks an NHL license, no team names are present in the game, and teams are identified by their team colours and location (for example, blue and orange is Long Island for the New York Islanders).
Computer Gaming World approved of the game's use of real NHL hockey player names and teams, and concluded that it was "just about as realistic and detailed as one could hope a cartridge game to be ... two red and blistered thumbs up".
