NHL 96 is an ice hockey video game, the successor to NHL 95.

Major and double minor penalties were included in the game. The PC version is the first game in the series to have multiple cameras, using EA's "Virtual Stadium technology". The Virtual Stadium technology uses 2D sprites on a 3D environment. The song included is Get Ready For This by 2 Unlimited is used as the game's main theme (for the PC version, the game music is done by game composer Jeff van Dyck).

The game offered two options for season length. The numbers of games are either 48 or 82 games. The actual 1994-95 NHL season was shortened to 48 games due to the 1994–95 NHL lockout.

Also, the cover of the game features Steve Yzerman and Scott Stevens. It was the final game in the series that included more than one player on the cover in North America. Since the release of NHL 97, the games' covers have single players.
