Four teams will qualify for the CHE Women's Division 2 Playoffs. The three conference winners (North, East, South) will earn berths in the playoffs based on conference standings, and one additional team will earn a berth based on the "playoff standings."
The conference standings will count only head-to-head games within the conference. Each team will play a total of 8 conference games. The team with the best record in its conference will be the conference winner and will qualify for the playoffs.
The playoff standings will be based on the one designated crossover game each teams plays against the other six division teams in the other conferences, plus the last game played against each team in the same conference. Each team will play a total of 8 games that count towards the playoff standings. The highest-ranked team in the playoff standings that did not win its conference will qualify for the playoffs.
The playoff standings will also sort out the seeding among the four playoff participants. The team with the best record in the playoff standings will be the #1 seed, and the team with the next-best record will be the #2 seed. The next two playoff teams may be reversed in their standings order to ensure that two teams from the same conference do not play each other in the first round.
It is the mission of College Hockey East to have the fans enjoy the game just as much as we enjoy having their support. Spectators play a critical role in establishing a positive image of our leagues, our schools, and our teams, in addition to creating a festive atmosphere at our events.
