Mini-Tournament Format

Eligible Logos 22; The logos featured in this tournament are the crests of NHL third jerseys currently in use (2009-10 season). Graphic backgrounds are colored to match the front of the jersey itself. No sweater numbers will be used in the graphics even if they appear on the front of the jersey.

The Basics To ensure that there are no byes during the mini-tournament, the 22 logos are divided up randomly into two groups of even numbers. This means that Group A has 12 logos while Group B has 10. There is a total of four weeks of voting.

Preliminary Round Each logo faces three random opponents in three weeks of polls. At the end of each poll, both logos are awarded points equal to their percentage of the vote (rounded to nearest whole number). A total of 100 points will be awarded in each poll. Teams are ranked within their group by points, from highest to lowest.

Quarterfinals By popular request, the Top 4 logos from each group will advance to the playoff round, just like a standard tournament. Group A's #1 seed will play Group B's #4 seed and so on as indicated in the bracket above.

Semifinals The winners of the Quarterfinal polls advance to the Semifinals. The logos with more votes in their respective polls win.

Championship Final The winners of the Semifinal polls advance to the Championship Final. The logo with more votes at the end of the poll wins.
