Four teams qualified for the tournament, two each from the eastern and western regions. The WCHA tournament co-champions received automatic bids into the tournament. The two at-large bids that were available to eastern teams were conferred to the winners of two separate playoff games between the four teams judged to be the best at the conclusion of the regular season. The games were played at the home venue of the higher seed. Neither of these games are considered to be part of the NCAA tournament but are included here for continuity.
