Drake Caggiula and Alex DeBrincat will represent the Blackhawks in the NHL Player Gaming Challenge, a single-elimination EA Sports’ “NHL 20” tournament with each NHL team represented by one or two players.

Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Willson, who played hockey while growing up in LaSalle, Ontario, will represent the yet-to-be named Seattle NHL franchise.

The tournament will begin April 30, and the bracket has yet to be announced. Kings TV play-by-play announcer Alex Faust will host weekly matchups, which will be released Thursday and Saturdays. All featured matches will be streamed on the NHL’s social platforms: Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook Premier and NHL.com.
