FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

TORONTO/NEW YORK (June 12, 2019) – The players are confirmed. Their tickets to Las Vegas are booked. Their final HUT draft selections have been made. What’s left to do? Tune in to the NHL’s Twitch channel on Tuesday, June 18, at 3 p.m. ET to find out who will take home the $50,000 grand prize and Championship Trophy as the 2019 NHL Gaming World Champion!

 

The 2019 NHL Gaming World Championship™ Final will feature a bracket of the winners from each region – Canada, European Union and U.S. – with one final spot determined through a special Play In round-robin of the runner-up from each region. After months of intense competition, the 2019 NHL Gaming World Championship™ will culminate at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas on June 18. All matches, including a special edition of The GWC Lobby presented by Honda, will be streamed live starting at 2:30 p.m. ET.

 

The runners-up from each Live Regional Final – John ‘Johnwaynee’ Casagranda (U.S. runner-up, No. 4 seed), Matthew ‘Yung Gren’ Grenier(Canada runner-up, No. 5 seed) and Hannes ‘Hansulinho’ Kettunen (Europe runner-up, No. 6 seed) – will play each other in a best-of-one round-robin tournament, with the winner advancing to the semifinal round of the NHL Gaming World Championship Final to play the tournament’s top seed and reigning champion, Eki. In the event of a three-way tie in round-robin play, stats from the Live Regional Final and round-robin will be used to determine which player advances.

 

The semifinal round will consist of a best-of-three single-elimination bracket, with Erik ‘Eki’ Tammenpää (No. 1 seed) playing the Play In bracket winner, and Matthew ‘Top-Shelf-Cookie’ Gutkoski (No. 2 seed) taking on Karl ‘Mg x Nuclear’ Caslib (No. 3 seed). The winner of each semifinal then will compete in the final to determine who will be crowned the winner of the NHL Gaming World Championship™. The losers of the semifinals will play each other to determine the bronze position.
