How to play

The Second Season Minnesota Girls High School Hockey Tournament Bracket Challenge is played just like you'd play any other type of tournament bracket. Each user will fill out both the Class A and Class AA brackets, and points will be awarded for each correct pick.

Filling out your bracket

There are three (3) playoff rounds total during the Minnesota High School Hockey Tournament Bracket Challenge. Prior to the first round of the tournament, you will fill out a brackets for each of the Class A & Class AA tournament. You will not be able to change your tournament picks once the tournament begins. Once the tournament start your bracket locks for the remainder of the Minnesota High School Hockey Tournament Bracket Challenge. The Administrator will update point totals at the end of each tournament game.

Scoring

Point Values

A team will accumulate points based on the round in which each correctly guessed team has won. The chart below lists the point values.

Scoring
Statistic Points Earned
Round 1 Correct Picks 1 Point (x multiplier)
Round 2 Correct Picks 2 Points (x multiplier)
Round 3 Correct Pick 3 Points (x multiplier)

Multipliers

Multipler points are seed-based, rewarding lower ranked teams moving on in the tournament. For example, if the #4 seed team wins their first round matchup, they earn 1 point x 4 (their seed) to equal 4 points. If the #1 seed wins their first round matchup they earn 1 point x 1 (again, their seed) to equal 1 point. Same system holds true throughout the playoffs. If you pick a #8 seed to win the championship, it is worth 24 points (8 x 3).

Tiebreakers

Ties will be broken by comparing tiebreaker answers each owner will provide with final bracket submission. In the event that there is still a tie after all tiebreaker answers are examined, your league commissioner will decide the winner.

Bracket Requirements

If your bracket(s) is not submitted once the deadline passes, you are ineligible to play.
