This is also the first NHL game to appear on the PlayStation 2 and also to include Latvia and Ukraine to the 18 national teams first featured in NHL 98 (Only available in the PC and PlayStation 2 versions). There is also a brand new feature called the Momentum Bar, which goes to the team who has scored goals, done big hits, etc.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The PlayStation 2 version features the Hartford Whalers uniforms under uniform select under the Carolina Hurricanes. This is the only NHL game that has featured the Whalers logo or uniforms after NHL 97 as a result of the Whalers relocating to Raleigh, North Carolina and becoming the Carolina Hurricanes.
