Buffalo will remain the final stop for prospects before the National Hockey League's entry draft.
The league and the Buffalo Sabres announced Monday the two sides signed a three-year contract to continue to hold the combine in KeyBank Center and LECOM Harborcenter through 2022. The week-long event, which includes interviews and off-ice fitness testing, has been held in Buffalo since 2015, bringing more than 100 prospects, league personnel, team employees and media to the city.
The event begins with teams conducting one-on-one interviews with prospects in suites throughout KeyBank Center. The off-ice fitness testing includes measurements of height, wing span, standing long jump, bench press, balance, aerobic fitness and the Wingate Cycle Ergometer Test, which measures agility.
