"This is our first foray into what we're calling competitive gaming. We're extremely excited about it, and we've been very careful about launching it the right way," said Keith Wachtel, the NHL's chief revenue officer and executive vice president of global partnerships. "But it's very much an embryonic, Phase One for us."

ESPN.com has an overview of the 2018 NHL Gaming World Championship

Over four consecutive weekends starting March 24, registered players will play one-on-one games in the single-elimination online qualifier tournaments. The qualifiers will be open to players residing in Canada, the European Union and the United States. The tournament will include qualifier tournaments for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, before the PS4 becomes the exclusive console for the regional final and championship round.

The European finalists will compete at Viasat studios in Stockholm on Sunday, May 6. Canadian regional finalists will compete in Toronto on Friday, May 11. U.S. regional finalists will compete at NBC Studios in Stamford, Connecticut, on Sunday, May 20. All three regionals will be covered by the networks.

The winner and runner-up from each regional final will then advance to Las Vegas for the 2018 NHL Gaming Final -- a round-robin-style tournament -- hosted at the new Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotel and Casino on Tuesday, June 19. The top two gamers will emerge from the round robin to face off in a best-of-three final round to determine the 2018 NHL Gaming world champion, who could receive upward of $50,000, a championship trophy and would appear during the NHL Awards in Vegas.

"What we wanted to do, and this is a little bit different than everyone else, is to be as inclusive as possible," Wachtel said. "This is a participatory vehicle for us. We're making it extremely simple. It's a test-and-learn phase for us."
