2012 NHL Entry Draft Combine Results

The annual NHL Entry Draft combine assessment involves interviews, medical screenings, and fitness tests over a four-day period. The combine was administered as usual by Dr. Norm Gledhill, a professor of kinesiology at York University, with the assistance of employees and graduate students from the York University Human Performance Lab. Below are the results of the fitness assessments for the 2012 NHL Scouting Combine (see details of the testing procedures).

The world's top ice hockey prospects are invited to the combine, with over 100 draft-eligible players from North American and Europe being tested at the Toronto Congress Centre, Canada. See the complete list of 2012 combine invitees. Interviews started on May 28, and fitness testing was conducted on June 1 and 2, 2012. See also the previous NHL Entry Draft Combine Results.
