NOTES ON PROSPECT TEST RESULTS

Information about the testing process used at the Scouting Combine can be found in the following document:

Detailed Assessment Protocols For NHL Entry Draft Players, N. Gledhill, Ph.D. and V. Jamnik, M.Sc., York University, Toronto, 2007.

Wingspan: The player extends his arms straight out to the sides. Measure to the nearest 0.2 cm from the middle finger tip to middle finger tip. "Protocols," pg. 2

Push-ups: Push-ups are performed at a rate of 25 per minute in time with the metronome (set the metronome at 50 so that each click signals a movement either up or down). "Protocols," pg. 7

Standing Long Jump: The player stands with feet slightly apart with toes behind the jumping line. Using an arm swing to assist, the player jumps as far as possible. Record to the nearest centimetre the distance from the jumping line the heel mark in the best of three trials. "Protocols," pg. 8

Vertical Jump: Conducted using the Vertec Jump measurement apparatus. "Protocols," pg. 8
