TORONTO -- Belleville Bulls defenseman Jordan Subban has been hearing about NHL drafts for a long time -- going back to the 2006-07 season, when his oldest brother, P.K., was going through the process, including a trip to the Scouting Combine.
Last season Jordan got to watch his middle brother, Malcolm, go through it. Now, finally, it's Jordan's turn to meet with NHL teams, go through the fitness testing and enjoy a taste of the NHL draft experience.
"It's been exciting so far," Jordan told NHL.com. "I can't wait to get the testing going [Friday]."
Jordan said he didn't get much in the way of advice from his older brothers.
"They said just be yourself, have fun," he said. "Enjoy the moment."
He's been enjoying meeting the NHL teams during interviews since arriving Monday, and said he's ready for the fitness testing Friday, which includes the rigorous Wingate and Vo2 Max stationary bike tests.
"I've done it before," Jordan said. "I think I have a pretty good understanding of what it's going to be like."
