Notes:

  • Goaltender Joseph Raaymakers saw success in five tests, including both of the lateral agility tests
  • Auston Matthews performed well in the peak power output measurements for the Wingate and the Pro Left Agility test (which involves racing to touch cones laterally)
  • Patrik Laine appeared only in the top-10 of the left-hand grip measurement, though he didn't participate in certain tests
  • Peterborough's Jonathan Ang and top QMJHL prospects Pierre-Luc Dubois and Sam Girard stood out in a number of tests
  • William Nylander's younger brother Alex also proved strongly on several tests
  • Defensemen Jakob Chychrun and Mikhail Sergachev and stood out as the athletes that we have come to recognize them as
  • The USHL's Michael Graham's lack of fatigue in the anaerobic testing relative to the rest of the top talent is astonishing
