So there’s the list. There are 43 Canadians, 26 Americans, 10 from Sweden, nine from the Czech Republic, five Russians, four Finns, two each from Slovakia and Switzerland, one from the UK , one German, and one dual German/Canadian.

There are a few Europeans missing, but most of the names on the top 30 lists out there are here.

There’s three guys named Ty, but only one Blade. I noticed two sons of NHL players, but there might be more. There’s two Xaviers, so they can make up the Combine X-Men if they get bored.

The big day at the Combine should be this coming Saturday, which is the public testing day. In between are interviews and other behind the scenes tests and evaluations.
