Day Three: World Selects Trophy

Final Placement and Bracket Seeding For Elimination Rounds

NASHVILLE — Pool play concluded on Wednesday as all 20 participating teams completed their five-game schedules. The top 16 teams based on points in the standings would advance to the elimination rounds on Thursday. With plenty of movement still possible, some teams managed to play their way into the Field of 16 while others were essentially eliminated from contention by the end of the day. 

With pool play completed, the official playoff bracket is as follows:

Ontario-based Everest Academy earned the top seed after a 5-0 record, including four regulation-time victories, earning 14 points in the standings. Standout forward Tyron Fevry is tied for the tournament lead in goals with seven and has factored in on eight of Everest’s 24 goals.

DraftDay-Black was the only other team to remain unbeaten in regulation, suffering just one shootout loss at the hands of Exposure Hockey. That shootout decision helped propel Exposure into the playoff picture, as Tij Iginla and Gavin Cornforth helped pick up two wins in the final day of pool play to sneak in as the 13-seed.

Walker Bright is the tournament’s leading scorer after Wednesday. He and teammate Matthew Frost combine to be the highest-producing duo at the event with 18 points between the pair. After posting a 4-1 record, Bright and Frost have elevated Bloodline Hockey to the No. 3-seed in the tournament as a strong contender for the elimination rounds.

All-American Prospects forward Ryker Lee had a big day with three goals and seven points. Three consecutive wins by AAP moved them into the No. 7-seed for Thursday for a matchup with Upstate Kings.

With the field now set for Thursday, the tournament will proceed with Round-of-16 and Quarterfinal games, whittling the remaining teams down to just four by the end of the day. Semifinals and championship games will conclude on Friday before the World Selects Trophy crowns its 2021 champion.
