Here is the official bracket for the 2016 men's ice hockey NCAA tournament. Despite a couple difficult decisions for the committee to make switching teams around to avoid intra-conference match-ups, the final bracket ended up matching our projected bracket perfectly. As with the tournament every year, it's another year where anybody can beat anybody and it wouldn't be a surprise to any team lift the title in Tampa Bay.

Northeast Regional (DCU Center, Worcester, MA, March 25-26)

#4 Providence vs. #14 Minnesota Duluth

#5 Boston College vs. #11 Harvard

East Regional (Times Union Center, Albany, NY, March 26-27)

#1 Quinnipiac vs. #16 RIT

#8 UMass Lowell vs. #10 Yale

Midwest Regional (US Bank Arena, Cincinnati, OH, March 25-26)

#3 North Dakota vs. #13 Northeastern

#7 Michigan vs. #12 Notre Dame

West Regional (XCel Energy Center, St. Paul, MN, March 26-27)

#2 St. Cloud State vs. #15 Ferris State

#6 Denver vs. #9 Boston University

Frozen Four (Amalie Arena, Tampa Bay, FL April 7 &9)
