Pressing Pause: 2018 PlayStation Platinum Cup Recap

Erin Riley

In-between games of NHL 19 and meeting Toronto Maple Leafs alumni, teams participating in the 2018 PlayStation Platinum Cup found the time to squeeze in some on-ice competition. Twenty-four teams started the tournament, but only three could go home as PlayStation Platinum Cup champions.

After only recording two regular-season losses, the Riverside Rangers came up just short against the Markham Waxers in the Atom A gold medal game. With a round-robin record of 2-1-0, the Waxers handed the undefeated Rangers their first loss of the tournament in a 3-2 victory, earning themselves a nice shiny gold medal.
