Today we make it official that KOVA Esports is joining the NHL party by announcing their own roster, which will be assuming the spot of Miracle in ECL 10 Elite. In command of experienced captain Kimi @Zip player Nordberg, this team has represented other organisations in the past and was last seen on the ice in eSHL representing Djurgarden Hockey.
"We wanted to keep things high level after the eSHL and started looking at Finnish organisations, KOVA stuck out and turned out to be a great fit for us", says Nordberg about their new org.
KOVA Esports is a Finnish organisation that has made waves in the scene over the past year or so. They currently have representation in CS:GO, Hearthstone, Fortnite, Starcraft and most recently Rainbow Six Siege and NHL.
"The initial push to enter the NHL scene came from our partners and their interest towards the game. We've been scouting the scene and looking for representation for a while now, so we're excited to finally get this opportunity" - KOVA Esports co-founder Aleksi Halsas
"We're aiming for a top-four finish and are in general interested to see what this first season brings. We believe that the competitive scene will take great strides forward over the next few seasons", he continues.
