Notes:

  • Marner weighed in at 159.85 Ibs, and measured at 5'11", tying him with Anthony Cirelli and Adam Marsh as the lightest player at the combine
  • Prospect Travis Konecny came out with one of the most well-rounded performances, finishing in the top 10 five times
  • Jack Eichel finished in the top 10 in seven different tests while Connor McDavid did for just three events
  • Prince Albert Raiders defenceman Brendan Guhle was the biggest standout, with nine top 10 finishes, including first in the standing long jump and the peak power output tests
