NOW Prospects Combine: Monday Live Blog

By Tony Scott , 06/26/23, 7:45PM CDT


Day 1 sees new faces to the U, campus tours, interviews and HOCKEY!

The Time is Now!

Coach Ben Gordon sits down with Tony Scott to discuss his hockey path to the U of M

Arriving at 3M Arena at Mariucci before dawn is a stark reminder that sporting cathedrals are downright eerie when unoccupied. How could a place that has housed so much noise be so quiet? How could a box of emotion feel so empty? 

Then the Combine participants arrived and shattered the sound barrier for the next twelve hours. 

Since 2015, the NOW Prospects Combine has hosted a camp at the University of Minnesota. Past participants include multiple Mr. Hockeys, countless college hockey players, and at least one Olympian.

With the addition of girls to the program now for two years, the results have been nothing short of golden.
