J.T. Brown's marathon "Fortnite" event was a rousing success.

The Minnesota Wild forward confirmed that he raised more than $1,300 for Hockey Is For Everyone when he played the video game online for 24 consecutive hours earlier this month.

"I would like to thank those who took time to tune in and make it an enjoyable time," Brown told NHL.com. "Also a big thank you to those who generously donated money to the cause. Without any of them, I'd just be me in my basement playing video games alone, and that's not as fun."

Brown solicited donations through his Twitch page. He kicked off the marathon session with the Fortnite Battle Royale, which included fellow NHL players Brock Boeser, Johnny Gaudreau, Nick Bonino, Zach Werenski and Vladislav Namestnikov.

Brown started the marathon event to commemorate his year anniversary of streaming.
