Wayne Gretzky and Alexander Ovechkin will be taking their talents to the Xbox One to battle it out in a best-of-three series playing NHL 20. The series will be broadcast live on the Washington Capitals Twitch account and both players will have a partner, which will make for some two on two game play.
Gretzky will be teaming up with his son Tristan, while Ovechkin is bringing in the big guns with esports pro John Casagranda stepping in to help out. With Ovechkin being more of gamer than Gretzky, and him getting to bring in one of the best NHL 20 players in the world, you have to think Ovi has a great chance to get this win.
On this page I will outline how you can bet on this Gretzky vs Ovechkin series if you live in Canada or the United States.
