My boyfriend is a hockey player and because of it I also engaged in hockey and I am aware of some events related to this. But I think every person knows about Columbus Blue Jackets because it is a really famous and widespread hockey club with its own talented and popular hockey players. It is so cool that this league introduced such an esports arm like CBJ Gaming and that they presented 4 forthcoming esports tournaments. I don’t even know which team will have success in the competition and I think it is a really great first place prize to get 2000 dollars and also it is really cool to gain 500 dollars for the second place. I think that the winning team will turn out to be a really decent and powerful competitor which I’m looking forward to learning about.
