WHL – POE Skills Combine


Hockey Manitoba, in partnership with the WHL, is pleased to host this special opportunity for participating players invited from the Director’s Cup Prospects program.

The testing conducted by WHL Combines will consist of a series of on-ice skill tests and off-ice fitness tests that will enable a player to compare their individual results, through the Sport Testing database, with other players from around the world.

The results will identify the strengths of a player, as well as areas where improvement may be required.  All WHL clubs will have instant access to the test results for scouting & development purposes.
