Format[edit | edit source]
All eight teams in the WCHA were eligible for the tournament. In the first round the schools were matched up based upon regional location, having the schools closest to one another play a single game with the winners advancing to the second round. The two Colorado schools (Colorado College and Denver) met in one match, leaving North Dakota to play their closest geographic rival Minnesota. With the Gophers occupied Minnesota-Duluth's next closest opponent was Michigan Tech, leaving Michigan and Michigan State as the pair in the final First Round game. Because each of these teams had met under the same circumstances the previous year the home venue that wasn't used the first time was utilized for this tournament, resulting in two higher-seeded teams playing on the road. After the first round the two eastern-most remaining teams met in the home venues of Michigan Tech (Dee Stadium) while the two western-most schools met at Denver's home building (DU Arena). In the second round the first and fourth seeds and the second and third seeds were matched with the winners being declared as co-conference tournament champions.
