J.T. Brown found a good night for "Fortnite." And an even better cause.

The Minnesota Wild forward is using his love for video games to raise money for the Hockey Is For Everyone initiative, playing the popular video game for 24 straight hours, kicking off the event with a two-hour charity game with fellow NHL players Brock Boeser, Johnny Gaudreau, Zach Werenski, Nick Bonino and Vlad Namestnikov on Friday.

"The fans that show up up, they ask who else can play from around the League," Brown told NHL.com. "The idea just came up from the public asking if we could play in the same game together."

The NHL players will join a collection of randomly chosen Twitter users for the Fortnite Battle Royal. Brown will be soliciting donations via Twitch, both bits and subscriptions, and will send all proceeds to the Hockey Is For Everyone initiative, which uses the sport of hockey and the NHL's influence to drive social change and foster more inclusive communities.
