If you want in the tournament, make sure you sign up quickly. Spaces are being allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Not to miss out on the action, both Andrew Green and I have signed up to represent team NextGen Player at the tournament. But don't worry about us colluding - when it comes to competitive gaming, it's an all-out hockey war.
Hell, I might even throw the tournament just so I can take off my virtual gloves and try out NHL 2K9's all-new "Wii-Remote™ Fighting" system!
