This is an opportunity to be tested using the same equipment and tests that are utilized at the Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game as well as NHL teams, including the Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings and Philadelphia Flyers. This year all four Western Provinces will test their top U15 athletes as part of their High Performance programs, including additional high performance programs and events. The reality is, as a competitive hockey player, eventually you may be in a situation where you will have to perform the combine testing under pressure, and your performance will affect your chances of making the cut. Here’s a opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with each test and experience the testing in a comfortable setting, with constructive feedback!
