The New York Islanders in collaboration with FaZe Clan announced “Esports Night”, which will take place at UBS Arena on Dec. 6.
One of the headlines of the event is seeing the North American NHL Gaming champion, ‘Regs’, face off against the European champion, ‘Eki’.

They provided an illuminating insight into what this event means for the community at New York, who are seeing FaZe Clan return to their first “home”, but also for the trajectory of NHL esports and esports in general moving forward.
