Over 100 potential NHL Draft prospects were invited by NHL Central Scouting to the annual NHL Scouting Combine in Buffalo, NY. The NHL Scouting Combine, which has taken place in Buffalo in each of the last two years, showcases the top draft-eligible prospects from North America and Europe ahead of the NHL Draft.

 

The event consists of player interviews, medical assessments and a series of physical fitness tests. All 31 NHL Clubs have the opportunity to conduct individual interviews with players in preparation for the NHL Draft.

 

Below are results of how USHL players and alumni measured against their peers. A full summary of the top-25 prospects, along with an explanation of results, can be found here.
