The 2015 Hockey East Men's Ice Hockey Tournament was played between March 6 and March 21, 2015 at campus locations and at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The Boston University Terriers defeated the UMass Lowell River Hawks by a score of 5–3 to earn their 8th Hockey East championship in school history. Jack Eichel was named tournament MVP.

The tournament is the 31st in league history.

Format[edit]

With the addition of the UConn Huskies to Hockey East, the tournament was reformatted to include all twelve teams in the conference. Seeds 1–4 earned a first-round bye, and seeds 5–12 played a best-of-three Opening Round played on campus locations. Winners advanced to play the 1–4 seeds in the best-of-three Quarterfinals on campus locations. Winners of those series played in a single-game Semifinal, and those winners faced off in a single-game Championship Final, both at the TD Garden.
