Now that the 2016 NHL Stanley Cup Final is complete and the Penguins have been crowned champions, I’d like to officially release my all-new bracket graphic, the “rink bracket”.

I wanted to challenge myself to create something more aesthetically appealing and sport-specific, I’ve attempted to create an engaging infographic by dividing the hockey playing surface area using the natural lines and boundaries of the rink.  Let me know what you think of this format, and as always, thanks for taking a look!
