The 1998 CCHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament was the 27th CCHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament. It was played between March 13 and March 21, 1998. Opening round games were played at campus sites, while all 'final four' games were played at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

In the semifinals, the remaining highest and lowest seeds and second highest and second lowest seeds play a single-game, with the winners advancing to the finals.
