there don't seem to be a lot of modern ones! looks like hockey tables were more popular in previous eras.

power play (bally 1978 ) was a pretty popular game if you like that style and don't mind the rather monochrome art.

ice fever (1985 premier) is more modern altho done in a fairly silly 80's style.

you should try them out in VP, that's for sure!

Sorry, so far no new hockey-themed pinball machines are available. Ones popular so far are exactly what Ike Savage said: Power Play by Bally and Ice Fever by Premier. Maybe you can also check out Super Chexx and see how it goes for you.

If I were designing a new machine, I would certainly eyeball "Frank Thomas' Big Hurt" and "Monday Night Football". Though neither is a hockey-themed game, the approach to both games would be perhaps appropriate for a hockey game as well.
I haven't yet seen the Stern NFL machine from the 2000's, so I couldn't compare it.
