Marr: 120 players invited to NHL Scouting Combine

by Mike G. Morreale

Once NHL Central Scouting finalizes the rankings for the top 2014 NHL Draft-eligible North American prospects, the scouting staff will begin making preparations for the NHL Scouting Combine, which will be held May 25-31 in Toronto.

NHL Director of Central Scouting Dan Marr confirmed for that 120 players, including North American and international skaters and goalies, have been invited to the Combine this year. The 2013 Combine had the top 101 players from North America and Europe.

All NHL teams will have the opportunity for 1-on-1 interviews with the invited prospects between May 26 and May 30. The medical examinations of each player will take place May 30 and fitness testing will be May 31.

Central Scouting's final meeting to nail down the final rankings of the top North American prospects continues Thursday through Tuesday in Toronto. It's a slow and arduous process, but that's done purposely so that no one is missed and players are ranked in their proper slots.
