DAY 2: NHL SCOUTING COMBINE


It's day two of the 2013 NHL Scouting Combine with three and a half groups of players remaining of the 101 total.

The NHL Scouting Combine is an annual event where top draft-eligible prospects go through numerous interviews with NHL teams followed by one hour of intense physical testing in front of a room full of media, scouts and NHL management. Winnipegjets.com is on location at the International Centre in Toronto covering the fitness portion of the event on Friday May 31st and Saturday June 1st.

The final group of 29 are divided into four groups. Each group begins the process with weighing in and having their exact height measured. They then make their way through the individual physical tests that include the following:

• Wingspan
• Body Fat (Skinfold Measurement)
• Grip Strength
• Push/Pull Strength
• Push-ups
• Curl-ups
• Vertical Jump
• Standing Long Jump
• Bench Press
• Trunk Flexion
• Equilibrium Test
• Jump Training Mat

After the strength testing concludes, the prospects move onto the very challenging and dreadful bike testing. There are two vigorous bike tests to complete: the Wingate Ergometer Test, which is geared to see how much energy a player uses during a 30-second shift, and the VO2 Max Test, which measures a player’s endurance. Think of the anaerobic (Wingate) as a regular shift in a game but the VO2 Max is the entire game as a whole.

Kelowna Rockets LW- Myles Bell

It's the third year that Kelowna Rockets (WHL) Myles Bell has been draft eligible. Last year at the 2012 NHL Draft he waited patiently to hear his name called, but that never happened. That was when he was playing as a defenseman. Now, he is a new-born left-winger. The 19-year old (20 in August), moved into his new role before the start of last season with the Rockets where he stayed for his entire fourth WHL season.

Bell says the move was a lot easier than he expected, which showed on his stat sheet after totaling 93 points (38g, 55a) in 69 games. His impressive numbers in his new role turned the heads of scouts everywhere as he rocketed up the Central Scouting Service rankings from 87th to 46st overall.

"My personal success is mainly because of how our team did with that 52 win season, setting the record," said Bell. "Just being in Kelowna, it's an unreal place to play hockey. One of your draft picks, Ryan Olsen is a huge addition to the team and has definitely helped us balance out our lineup letting me get a little more free space."

Six feet and 210 pounds says he will not be attending the NHL Draft this year on June 30th in New Jersey but he'll keep his fingers crossed on the golf course that his name will be called by an NHL team. He has high hopes of playing in the American League next year but if that doesn't pan out, he'll be excited to join the Rockets for one last year.
