“Despite losing the first game in the Final, we were thrilled that Justin was able to rally and win the next two games in dominant fashion, to defeat his opponent and secure the title to be crowned the 2022 North American Gaming World Champion,” he added.

The tournament, which began in March 2022, saw 18,000 participants competing for their share of the prize pool of up to US$100,000. Only eight contestants made it to the North American Club Final.

This is the third consecutive year that Reguly has qualified as a finalist for the North American NHL GWC, having finished in second place last year. He represented the New York Islanders in the championship.

Since joining Lazarus Esports, Reguly has won a number of online ‘1v1’ and ‘6v6’ events across North America. He was also part of an influencer team within Lazarus Esports that worked with Chevrolet Canada in November 2021 for the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup, which included a first-of-its-kind online esports event called the Chevrolet Canada Shootout Showdown presented by Lazarus in March 2022, the company noted.

“It’s an honour that Lazarus Esports played a pivotal role in the development and training of Justin over the last one and a half years. We are delighted to have achieved such success to date in the NHL ecosystem and are eager to continue building and offering a supportive home and competitive space for the NHL esports community and other respective sports titles,” Tiidal Gaming’s Watson said.

The NHL GWC also saw Lazarus Esports’ content creator and esports commentator Cam ‘NoSleeves’ Halbert host and commentate the tournament’s final matches in both Europe and North America.
