The 1985 CCHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament was the 14th CCHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament. It was played between March 8 and March 16, 1985. First round games were played at campus sites, while 'final four' games were played at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. By winning the tournament, Michigan State received the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's automatic bid to the 1985 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament.

Format[edit]

The tournament featured three rounds of play. The team that finished below eighth place in the standings was not eligible for postseason play. In the quarterfinals, the first and eighth seeds, the second and seventh seeds, the third seed and sixth seeds and the fourth seed and fifth seeds played a two-game series where the team that scored the higher number of goals after the games was declared the victor and advanced to the semifinals. In the semifinals, the remaining highest and lowest seeds and second highest and second lowest seeds play a single-game, with the winners advancing to the finals. The tournament champion receives an automatic bid to the 1985 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament.
