Created by J.T. Compher and Zach Hyman, three Flyers will be taking part in NHLPA Fortnite Tournament.
With nothing to do right now, many players have turned to video games to occupy their time. Some have even turned to the streaming world to entertain and connect with fans. Today, that will include a group of 65 current NHL players and 80 players overall. The list includes three Flyers that will be taking part in the Fortnite Tournament.
The NHLPA Open is a three-hour Fortnite tournament that will be streamed live on Twitch. Each NHL team will be represented by three players.
There are also a few wildcard teams in the mix as well. Sweden is represented by three of the NHL’s foreign players. A few women’s squads are involved in the tournament as well.
The prize is set at $200,000 and will go to the player’s charities of choice. The top five teams in the tournament will have a chance to win the money for their charities. The tournament was set up by current Colorado Avalanche’s J.T. Compher and the Toronto Maple Leafs Zach Hyman. Hyman will be serving as the host of the tournament and will be joined by Bil Carter and Nick Eh 30.
The teams will be awarded points based on gameplay and victories at the end of each round.
Unsurprisingly, the three Flyers taking place in this tournament are younger players on the team. The team will be represented by Travis Konecny, Joel Farabee and Connor Bunnaman. Konecny is considered the team captain of the squad.
We know that Farabee has been gaming a lot since the season has been put on hiatus. At least that’s what Kevin Hayes has been telling us.
You can catch the live tournament starting at 2 p.m and will be running until around 5 p.m.
