NHL Combine Report per TSN

Not surprisingly, Dana Tyrell and Stefan Legein were two of the day's unexpected brightest stars in physique/testing. Kyle Turris and James Van Riemsdyk were two top forwards who tested well. Read the rest of the report at TSN.
Dana Tyrell
"The sleeper of the day might have been Prince George's Dana Tyrell. The 5-foot-11 and 180-pound fireplug looked very lean and fit and had a very impressive 12 reps on the bench, which was easily one of the top perfomances of the day. He showed strength beyond his size. He also ripped it up on the sprint-bike and did well in agility testing."
Stefan Legein


"Another player who made a good impression was relatively unheralded winger Stefan Legein of the Mississauga IceDogs. He was one of 40 draft-eligible prospects selected to participate in the 2007 CHL Top Prospects Game and won the fastest skater competition with a lap time of 14.109 seconds. He has a smaller frame at 5-foot-10, plenty of lean muscle mass, but looks like a brickhouse who you wouldn't want to meet on open ice. He appeared to be testing well, impressing scouts with his work ethic and impressive physical fitness, appearing almost bored at some points during the tests."
