Top hockey prospects get poked, prodded and measured at NHL Combine

TORONTO - Halifax Mooseheads winger Jonathan Drouin opted to skip the fitness portion of the NHL Combine, citing his prolonged season.

Drouin, ranked third among North American skaters by the NHL's Central Scouting Bureau, did take part in the medical testing at the Toronto airport convention centre Friday morning.

He said he will work out at a later date for individual clubs as needed.

Portland Winterhawks defenceman Seth Jones, the top-ranked North American skater, was also expected to skip the fitness portion. He has a medical exemption, however.

Some 100 prospects are at the Combine.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
