It was the first season with games televised by Fox, which they would do until the end of the 1998–99 season. It marked the first major American broadcast agreement for the NHL since 1975. Fox split Stanley Cup Finals games with ESPN.
The regular season was shortened because of a 103 day lockout, which ended on January 11, 1995. The season finally got underway nine days later.
An era comes to an end as the Boston Bruins play their final season at the Boston Garden. They would then move to their current arena, the TD Garden (then named the FleetCenter).
Two ice resurfacers would now be required by every arena for the resurfacing between periods.
A coach can call for a stick measurement in overtime, but the request must be made before the winning goal is scored.
Leaving the penalty box to join an altercation on the ice will draw an automatic three-game suspension.
Any severe check from behind will result in a major penalty and game misconduct.
Referees would wear numbers instead of nameplates.
Due to the 1994–95 NHL lockout, the league shortened the season length from 84 games, the length of the previous two seasons, to 48. Furthermore, the season would last from January 20 to May 3; this was the first and only time in NHL history that the regular season extended into May. Regular-season games would be limited to intra-conference play (Eastern Conference teams did not play Western Conference teams).
