2014 NHL Entry Draft Combine Results

This was the 21st time the annual NHL Draft Combine had been held. The 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 2014 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. The combine was held from May 26 to 31. See the complete list of 2014 combine invitees. See also a summary of previous NHL Entry Draft Combine Results.

Below are the available top 10 fitness test results from available data. This year there were a few new tests: overhand pull-ups, single leg squats (both legs) and pro agility tests replaced push-ups, the push-pull station and the seated medicine ball throw.
