With less than a month remaining until the 2012 NHL Draft takes place, the 30 NHL clubs are getting a last opportunity to evaluate a number of the prospects available for the draft. This evaluation comes in the form of the NHL Scouting Combine, which is taking place this week in the Toronto area.
Last year, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins effectively ended the OHL's dominance atop the NHL Draft when he was selected first overall by the Edmonton Oilers. This year, the Oilers may start a new streak by calling an OHL player's name with the first pick for the fifth time in six years.
