Merkley and Hillis headed to NHL Scouting Combine this week in Buffalo
Storm players Ryan Merkley and Cam Hillis will take part in the NHL Scouting Combine this week in Buffalo.
The 2018 NHL Scouting Combine is underway this week in Buffalo and while we’re fairly certain the Sabres will select Rasmus Dahlin first overall in June’s draft, performances and interviews at the week-long scouting combine can sway GMs to move prospects either up or down the draft board.
Other than the fresh list of participating prospects, this year’s combine will remain more or less identical to what we’ve seen the past few years.
Sportsnet.ca will live stream the combine on Saturday as the players move in groups through most of the drills. The stream will run from 9:00 a.m. ET until noon.
If you’re unfamiliar with the annual showcase, here’s a quick rundown of what it’s all about.
