NHL Teams Clamp Down on Their Players Mentioning Fortnite

Some teams in the NHL are requiring players to clean up their social media – and not because of risque posts.

A tweet by TSN correspondent Rick Westhead revealed that teams within the National Hockey League are asking their players to delete any posts on their social media accounts referencing Fortnite, a massively popular multiplayer battle royale game.


Westhead stated that the teams believe the game is a major distraction from players’ training.

“An OHL team employee tells me some players have been advised to scrub Fortnite references from  social media accounts. Some NHL teams consider the video game a major distraction/obsession.”



In an article from the Daily Herald, it was uncovered that teams across the board were asking players about their gaming activities, paying particular attention to Fortnite.

An NHL insider likewise told a reporter that a high draft pick for the League would never be chosen due to his obsession with the game. This struck fear in the board, who then made it an effort to discourage excessive gaming for their players.

Everett Silvertips player Riley Sutter was cited as stating that some of his fellow teammates were so into the game that they wouldn’t sleep, staying up all night in favor of playing.


“There’s definitely some guys around the league, some even on my [junior] team, that are pretty bad for it,” Sutter said. “It takes away from their sleeping and keeps them up late … It’s starting to become a pretty big issue.”

The League’s trainers and board members alike are concerned that the game will take away from players’ valuable training time and strict schedules, ultimately affecting their success. Social media scrubbing is one way of removing the game as a potential distraction – at least from the outside.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.
