NHL 2001 is a Hockey game developed by Page 44 Studios and EA Canada and was published by EA Sports for PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PC.
In the PlayStation 2 version, if you shoot the puck at center ice skating towards the other team's zone, the puck would go over the goalie's head (since he was so far out) and result in a goal. The only way to stop this is if the user takes control of the goalie.
- The first NHL game for the PlayStation 2 and a launch title.
