Monumental Sports & Entertainment will host the semifinals and finals of the Caps Gaming Showcase Presented by Leidos on Saturday, Feb. 29 beginning at 11 a.m. on the Washington Capitals Twitch channel.
The Caps Gaming Showcase began in early December, featuring 82 teams in a 6v6 EA Sports NHL competition on Xbox One. The top 32 teams moved on to a single-elimination tournament, followed by two rounds of online bracket play, and concluding with the top four teams in Washington, DC for the live, in-person semifinals and finals this weekend.
The final four squads in contention for the $15,000 prize pool are @HiddenPotNHL, @PhantomsESHL, @EntourageNHL and @ResilienceNHL.
JohnWayne, the first NHL esports pro to be officially signed by an NHL organization, streams regularly on the Capitals Twitch channel and will be on-hand to provide commentary for the tournament.
