NHL Combine Tests Prospects Heart, Mind and Muscle

Leslie Treff attended the NHL combine in Toronto and rounded up some nuggets of information at Hockeys Future. If you want to see who impress the staff click on over. The key bit of news was finding out that all the prospects appear to have healthy hearts.

In another change, this year’s medical testing included the administration of an echocardiogram to each player. After the tragedies that befell both Mickey Renaud and Alexei Cherepanov, the NHL decided to be proactive in the detection of any heart issues. Happily, according to NHL Central Scouting Director EJ McGuire, no heart problems were found among the players who were in attendance.
