Hockey2Help was developed as a response to combat the need that COVID-19 has created. Organizers of this unique fundraising initiative powered by GameStop and EB Games Canada, have been uniting National Hockey League players, Alumni, and the Top Gamers in a marathon of epic hockey action from the comfort of their own homes. Through game play, the initiative is encouraging social distancing while at the same time, raising funds for some incredible causes.
Hockey2Help’s 14-day long series of livestreaming hockey action will benefit the COVID-19 relief efforts of Second Harvest (Canada), and Volunteers of America. These charities are tirelessly delivering essential services for thousands of seniors and our communities most vulnerable who are at increased risk of experiencing health and financial challenges during these unprecedented times.
Hockey2Help has already garnered support from Nasher, as well as National Hockey League players such as, Alex DeBrincat, Zach Hyman, Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews, Colton Parayko, Andrew Shaw, Robert Thomas, Zach Werenski and many more.

Additional match-up featured Nasher and Zach Hyman (Toronto Maple Leafs) vs. OnTheBench and JT Brown; Nasher and Zach Werenski (Columbus Blue Jackets) took on Colton Parayko, Robert Thomas (St. Louis Blues) and Tyler Stewart/Daddy adre (pro gamer).
