Big League Manager looks interesting. NHL Ice Breaker is simple but I enjoy it.

Here is a geeklist trying to answer that question:

Rod Hockey is a blast but its not really a board game.
I've also played national pro hockey from that list. It's fun.

I played hundreds of games of Strat-O-Matic hockey solo and with friends in my teen years and early twenties. It's a pretty nice simulation of hockey and you can draft players/create teams and play out full season schedules with playoffs.

Great for a league type of experience.

I like NHL Ice Breaker: The Card Hockey Board Game, though it's more of a card game than a board game.

My review if you're interested: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/120062

Check out Strat-O-Matic Hockey http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/3597. Stats updated every season. Plus there is a computer version that you can play online.

I've got this one:



And it intrigues me. Unfortunately, my boardgame friends aren't my hockey-fan friends and my hockey-fan friends aren't my boardgame friends, so I've not had the opportunity to play it.

The rules seem to be similar to a larger-scale StreetSoccer, but with a slight dexterity element (once you're across the blueline with the puck you can use the little springloaded tower device to take a shot on goal. It's a little clunky, and of course, you'd need an unobstructed straight-line path.

There was a Blood Bowl variant done around five years ago that followed the Blood Bowl rules closely. Somewhere I have a copy of those rules. Getting models would be tough though, I would think.
