NEW YORK/TORONTO (April 18, 2019) – With more than 150,000 matches completed during Online Qualifying play, an 812% increase year-over-year, the 2019 NHL Gaming World Championship™ continues this weekend as the top 128 players from each Region (European Union, Canada and U.S.) compete in single-elimination online bracket tournaments to determine who will advance to their respective Live Regional Final.

 

This past weekend, the top four players from the European Union for each of the Xbox and PS4 consoles – dominated by seven Finnish players – earned a trip to the Live European Regional on Saturday, May 18.
