The 2017 WCHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament was played between March 3 and March 18, 2017, on campus locations. By winning the tournament, Michigan Tech was awarded the Broadmoor Trophy and received the WCHA's automatic bid to the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament.

FormatEdit

The first two rounds of the postseason tournament features a best-of-three games format. The top eight conference teams participate in the tournament. Teams are seeded No. 1 through No. 8 according to their final conference standing, with a tiebreaker system used to seed teams with an identical number of points accumulated. The higher seeded teams each earn home ice and host one of the lower seeded teams.

The final was a single game held at the campus site of the highest remaining seed.
