EASHL Championships

After months and months of grinding it out online, the inaugural season has come to a close. While teams continue to duke it out online for bragging rights, we have gone ahead and selected 16 of the top Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 teams to take part in this year's post-season tournament, the NHL 09 EASHL Invitational.

The online portion of the tournament will have the eight teams per console squaring off against each other in a first-round elimination game on June 27th. Winners will then move on to the second round on July 4th and the winners from there will then advance to the Console Championships taking place online July 11th. Console Champions will earn an invite to EA Canada in Vancouver to then play in a Best-of-Seven series to take place August 5th-7th.

Here are the tournament match-ups for the first round:

PlayStation 3 Console Championships

#1 No CryBabys vs #8 MiNNeApoLIs KiDs

#2 Angry Whoppers vs #7 HE HATE ME

#3 NHL Regulators vs #6 ATLANTIC DANGLERS

#4 Mega Meat Stars vs #5 RapidCity Riot

Xbox 360 Console Championships

#1 Shammers United vs #8 THE HITMEN

#2 DREAM KILLERS vs #7 Dragon Force

#3 The White Church vs #6 xX DiRtY SniPe Xx

With the invites sent to the GM's there has already been a lot of talk about the competition in the tournament and it's looking to be quite a fierce race to the EASHL Championship. MORE
