After each week during the regular season, Wild.com along with our friends from Dairy Queen asked fans to pick the Top Play from each week. Now, we want to know which play is the best of the best. The only way to do this is a 32-play winner-take-all Top Play Tournament. Each of the 27 weekly winners will square off along with five wild card plays that received the most votes, but were not picked as Top Plays in their respective weeks.
We’ve divided the plays into four brackets: Niederreiter, Parise, Koivu and Saves. The 36 plays vying for a chance to be crowned the Dairy Queen Top Play of the Year will go head-to-head in a single-elimination bracket challenge until we crown a champion. The fate of the tournament and eventual champion will be in the hands of you, Wild fans. All you have to do is watch each video, select your favorite for each head-to-head matchup, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to submit your vote.Get the Round 1 Bracket PDF, here.
Voting each week opens on Tuesday and closes on each Thursday at 2 p.m., with the winners announced later that day. The Top Play of the Year will be announced on Thursday, June 18.
