This was the first championship for an eastern team since 1954 and the first time since 1949 that both finalists were from the east.

Qualifying teams[1]Edit

Four teams qualified for the tournament, two each from the eastern and western regions. The ECAC tournament champion and the two WCHA tournament co-champions received automatic bids into the tournament. An at-large bid was offered to a second eastern team based upon both their ECAC tournament finish as well as their regular season record.

East West
Seed School Conference Record Berth type Appearance Last bid Seed School Conference Record Berth type Appearance Last bid
1 Boston University ECAC Hockey 24–4–1 At-Large 6th 1966 1 North Dakota WCHA 19–8–0 Tournament co-champion 5th 1965
2 Cornell ECAC Hockey 25–1–1 Tournament champion 1st Never 2 Michigan State WCHA 15–14–1 Tournament co-champion 3rd 1966


Despite winning the tournament the ECAC champion was not seeded as the top eastern team; this occurred because the at-large team had a better conference regular season record. The WCHA co-champion with the better regular season record was given the top western seed. The second eastern seed was slotted to play the top western seed and vice versa. All games were played at the Onondaga County War Memorial. All matches were Single-game eliminations with the semifinal winners advancing to the national championship game and the losers playing in a consolation game.
