Tomorrow, I am heading up to Toronto for the annual scouting combine.  I believe that this will be my 7th or 8th combine that I am attending.  It is a good way to assess the top 115 or so prospects that may be selected in the draft.  They will be put through an assortment of physical tests in front of many team personnel.

I am often asked by other Trainers and Strength and Conditioning Coaches “How do prepare a hockey player for the combine?”.  Here is an article that I wrote a few years ago that addresses that:

Scouting the Scouting Combine

Also, who do you think will win the Stanley Cup?

  1. My money’s on the Kings, but never count out Brodeur.

    Just wondering if you can clarify what the “Push/Pull Isometric Test” is…?

  2. Hi Guy- thanks for reading the blog! I’m with you on the Kings (yes the Kings). They have been on a roll.
    You know, I really can’t clarify on that test. It is a harness like device that is draped over the players shoulder and it somehow measures their strength when they push or pull. It is isometric because the device doesn’t move. This is the only place that I have ever seen this done. I will try to have more info after the weekend.
