NHL 98 is a 1997 ice hockey game in the NHL series, developed by EA Canada. It is based on the ice hockey season of 1997–998. It was released on October 23, 1997 and was the successor to NHL 97.


NHL 98 took the NHL series ahead by introducing full national teams, although EA could not get the Nagano Olympic Tournament license due to lack of IIHF license, which Gremlin Interactive acquired. The Olympic hockey license itself was acquired by Midway Home Entertainment. Jim Hughson returns for play-by-play, this time joined by Daryl Reaugh, who provided color commentary. EA Sports also introduces 3Dfx Glide support for the first time in the NHL series.
