Eki

Erik Tammenpää
Age: 22
Location: Kirkkonummi, Finland

Erik is not only the NHLGWC 2018 World Champion, but a player who is a great ambassador for the game of hockey in the esports world. Known as "Eki" in the NHL gaming community, he has an upbeat and positive personality which shows in his streams and YouTube content. He has proven himself time and time again both regionally and internationally, but his hunger for more hasn't gone missing. We are happy to have Erik represent the ENCE colors in his future challenges.

Eki is one of the most versatile players in NHL esports - he doesn’t just stick to forcing one or two plays like a lot of the competition, but plays a well-rounded game that is enjoyable to watch. Despite having won pretty much everything possible within NHL esports so far, he is one of the most humble and positive spirits in the NHL scene.

Personal career highlight: NHLGWC 2018 World Championship in Las Vegas

"Best day of my life. Winning the first official World Championships in NHL is something I will never forget. Made me realize this could become a career for me."
