Sean Monahan, NHL Central Scouting's No. 5-rated skater among the top draft-eligible prospects in North America, is a center for the Ottawa 67's of the Ontario Hockey League. The 6-foot-2.25, 187-pound forward led his team with 31 goals, 47 assists, 15 power-play goals and 78 points in 58 games this season for the 67's. Monahan, who was voted among the top three players in four separate categories during the OHL Eastern Conference Coaches Poll in March, has offered to maintain a blog during his stay in Toronto for the NHL Scouting Combine this week.
So, three days have passed at the Combine in Toronto and it's been great. Meeting the scouts and general managers has been very exciting. I think the advice that [former Ottawa defenseman Cody] Ceci and [former Oshawa forward Scott] Laughton gave me was a big help. With the interviews, I'm just trying to be myself. I'm enjoying the whole process of the meetings.
