Regs thus pocketed a sum of US$2,000 in addition to qualifying for the Club Championship, the final round of the NHL GWC tournament, which will take place at the Taverne 1909, in Montreal, on July 6.

Gren, who represents the Dallas Stars, also earned her ticket to the event by virtue of her second place finish in the Console Finals. Indeed, the two finalists from each console (Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X and PS5) secured a place in the grand final. However, the winners of the console finals pocketed the sum of US$2,000, in addition to benefiting from a better rank in view of the Club Championship, which includes a total of eight players.

In the first game between the two players, Gren trailed 4-1, but managed to improve the score to 4-3 in the third period. The representative of the Stars, however, was sunk by indiscipline, he who received four minor penalties in the last six minutes of play. Regs took the opportunity to double his lead on a 5 against 3 and did not look back by the following.

Then, as soon as the second game started, Regs picked up where he left off. After one period, the Islanders representative was already leading 3-0. However, Gren had not said his last word and dominated the second period by threading the needle twice to reduce the deficit to one goal. Then, halfway through the third period, Gren finally tied the game, before making it 4-3 a few minutes later to take the lead for the first time in the game. The representative of the Stars, however, received another bad penalty moments after his fourth goal and Regs took advantage of the power play to tie the score at 4-4. who gave him momentum and leveled his series by scoring his fifth goal to force the holding of an ultimate match.

In the third and final game, both players applied a more defensive style of play as the first goal of the game was scored by Gren midway through the second period. We had to wait until the middle of the third period before we saw another goal, that of Regs who brought everyone back to square one and which at the same time forced the holding of an extension to crown the winner of this ultimate match. . Once again, Gren got a bad penalty and Regs was able to capitalize to end the match and be crowned champion on PS5.

On the other consoles, Geimer (Calgary Flames) and Uninsta1l (Edmonton Oilers) had the chance to replay the battle of Alberta, which the Oilers had won in the last Stanley Cup playoffs. On virtual ice however, it was the Flames representative who was crowned champion for the PS4. Geimer, who had also eliminated Quebecer Guillaume Asselin-Verreault (Canadian from Montreal) during the round of 16 of the console finals, managed to lay down his law to win in two games.

After the Alberta battle, it was time for the Ontario battle between Polgz (Toronto Maple Leafs) and SAP Alien (Ottawa Senators) on the Xbox Series X. Unsurprisingly, it was Polgz who was crowned winner, he who was the favorite on his console since the start of the competition. The representative of the Leafs, however, needed a final game to win his series by two games to one. Polgz had already had the upper hand over his opponent two games to nil in the previous round.

Finally, on Xbox One, Detroit Red Wings representative Jos X 10 defeated Lebaneseman69 (Minnesota Wild) in two games. The two players had also met in the previous round and Jos X 10 had served the same medicine to his opponent, also winning in two games.
