2019 College Hockey Bracketology, Men’s Division I

Projecting the field of 16.

In the 2019 college hockey bracketology, we will tell you who’s in the tournament and where they will be playing.

That’s pretty much what bracketology is and seeks to do. This specifically focuses on men’s Division I college hockey, in which 16 teams will qualify for the national tournament. Four of them move on to the 2019 Frozen Four in Buffalo, where one will be the national champion.

Last season, the winners were the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs, champions for the second time in program history. Will the Bulldogs be in the field again in 2019, and who would join them? We will track the bracketology all the way until the selection show on March 24, 2019.

And now, the requisite citation: To determine the 16-team S-Curve, we use the USCHO’s PairWise Rankings (PWR). This is their system that mimics how the NCAA Selection Committee figures their teams and seedings.

2019 College Hockey Bracketology: Tournament Format

There are six automatic bids for conference tournament champions. The remaining ten bids are at-larges, as in the ten highest teams in the PWR that did not win their conference.

Tournament regionals will be held in the following cities: Manchester, New Hampshire (Northeast), Providence, Rhode Island (East), Allentown, Pennsylvania (Midwest), and Fargo, North Dakota (West).
