PlayStation Platinum Cup Preview

Erin Riley

Gearing up to display their best Auston Matthews impressions, players are now less than a week away from taking to the ice at the third annual PlayStation Platinum Cup Powered by the Toronto Maple Leafs and the GTHL. Twenty-four Atom teams across three divisions will experience a weekend filled with excitement both on and off the ice, including a visit to the ACC. On the ice, players will have their eyes on the ultimate prize as they compete for the title of PlayStation Platinum Cup champions. Here’s a sneak peek of how the divisions break down.

All four teams in division one will be hoping to ride their winning streaks into the tournament. The Quinte West Hawks (12-2-2) are in the midst of a three-game winning streak, while the Essex Ravens haven’t recorded a loss in over a month. Both the Toronto Eagles (7-4-2) and Goulding Park Rangers (9-7-1) will hope to keep up their momentum, with both teams having won two straight. The dominators of division one, however, will possibly have to face division two’s Vaughan Panthers (12-2-2) who currently sit at the top of the GTHL Atom A West standings. The Panthers will no doubt be in for a challenge facing top-tier talent, including the Grimsby Kings (11-3-0), who aren’t very familiar with losing. The East Enders Ticats (11-5-1) and Riverside Rangers will be on the hunt to upset.

In division two, the Burlington Eagles (15-2-1) and  Scarborough Ice Raiders (9-5-4) will look to upset the West Hill Golden Hawks (12-3-3), who currently sit in first place in their regular season division.

The competition will be tight in division one with many of the teams sitting at the top of their regular season standings. The Toronto Titans (9-3-2) and the Whitby Wildcats (8-3-2) will be marked as the teams to beat, while the Markham Waxers (7-5-1) and Kanata Blazers are not far behind. Division two is led by the Halton Hurricanes (12-1-2) who have recorded only a single loss this season. The Don Mills Flyers (9-6-1), Mississauga Rebels (6-8-1), and Kingston Jr. Frontenacs (6-8-4) will have their work cut out for them as they aim for the upset.
