Combing the NHL Combine
Live from Toronto! It's the NHL Scouting Combine
After the Memorial Cup final is staged at Hershey Centre in Mississauga on Sunday (May 29), it's off to Toronto for the start of the NHL Scouting Combine!

The first day of the Combine should be a relatively slow one while players are interviewed by NHL teams within the Bristol Westin Hotel near Pearson Airport. NHL.com will be here all week, with daily stories and video to be accessed off the site. This event is a great appetizer for the draft, which is just over a month away.

The NHL Scouting Combine, which gives NHL clubs a chance to evaluate those future stars of the League less than a month before the 2011 Entry Draft, will be held May 30 through June 4 in Toronto, Ont.

The top 102 players as rated by NHL Central Scouting in April, including North American and European skaters and goaltenders, have been invited to participate in various team interviews and medical and physical tests. Unlike previous seasons, the Combine fitness testing will be held at the Toronto Congress Center on June 3-4. To help prepare for this year's Combine, NHL.com highlighted the top players at each position looking to make an impression.

Here was the schedule in case you missed it.

MONDAY, MAY 23:  Left wings

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
