While winning the Stanley Cup may not be in the cards for you, you get experience something close to the feeling if you join the NHL’s presence in the eSports scene and play in the 2018 NHL Gaming World Championship tournament.
Registration is currently open to players from Canada, the United States, and the European Union. This is the first tournament for the NHL and will have a $100,000 USD prize pool, of which the winner will win half, along with tickets to the 2018 NHL Awards in Las Vegas. Not a bad score, if you don’t mind the pun.
The qualification rounds will happen over four weeks beginning March 24th, and the top eight players from each region will advance to the in-person regional finals. If you find yourself in the top two from your region, you will make your way to Las Vegas for the final on June 19th.
