Madison Bowey (Winnipeg) and Ryan Pulock (Grandview) will be among the 101 top draft propsects that have been invited to take part in the 2013 NHL Scouting Combine.
The Combine will be held May 27 to June 1 in Toronto.
The list of prospects includes the top 79 players on NHL Central Scouting’s final ranking of North American skaters for the 2013 NHL Draft. Central Scouting is anticipating 86 North American players total, including the top seven goalies from its final ranking of North American goaltenders. The top 15 European prospects also have been invited.
The Combine is split into two parts. An interview phase will be held May 27-30, followed by a fitness test May 31 and June 1 at the Toronto International Centre and will be headed by Dr. Norman Gledhill and his staff at York University.
After the final rankings produced by Central Scouting; Pulock will attend as the 12th ranked North American skater and Bowey as the 32nd ranked. In what’s anticipated to be a very deep draft pool, these two locally produced defensemen are sure to be prize picks within the first or second round of this year’s NHL Entry Draft.
The 2013 NHL Entry Draft will take place June 30th at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
