2013 NHL Entry Draft Preview: Players Invited to the NHL Scouting Combine

Each year, the National Hockey League conducts a Scouting Combine (similar to that conducted by the NFL prior to their draft) for the purpose of evaluating all the top prospects for the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. Following is a list of all the prospects invited to this year's Combine.

NOTES ON PROSPECTS INVITED TO THE COMBINE

As the Blues do not currently hold a first-round pick (that being dealt to Calgary in the Bouwmeester trade), it's not likely that the Blues will get even a sniff of any of the top 30 North Americans or the top ten Europeans. Of course, there's always a possibility of the Blues trading up into the first round, as Doug Armstrong tells NHL.com HERE, but the more likely possibility is that the Blues will stick with what they have and rely on the depth of this year's draft to land a solid prospect.

Armstrong said he sees the potential for this year's draft, scheduled for June 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, to be an active one on the trade front, and though he certainly would like to move up into the first round, he said it's not imperative. The depth of the draft makes him confident the Blues will find a quality player wherever they end up picking.
"We're not going to rob Peter to pay Paul," he said. "It would be nice to have that [first-round] pick, but we don't want to deplete an area of strength on our current roster to do that. It would have to be the right (situation) short- and long-term for us.
"It's a deep draft from what our scouting staff is telling us. There's going to be players climbing out of the second, third and fourth rounds that are going to play and be good players. Our job is to find one of them."
