At The Combine

Holding four picks in the top 100 of the draft, the Panthers are certainly excited about adding to their deep pipeline. Topping the list of Panthers picks is the No. 2 pick overall, selecting after Colorado is set to kick off the 2013 NHL Entry Draft in New Jersey on June 30th.

With that, the Panthers will keep an extremely watchful eye on top players such as Seth Jones, Nate MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin who are ranked 1, 2 and 3 among North American skaters and Aleksander Barkov and Valeri Nichushkin, the No. 1 and 2 ranked European skaters in the upcoming draft according to Central Scouting's final rankings.

They got their first chance to sit down as a staff with potential draft picks at the NHL Combine in Toronto, held May 27 - June 1 in two separate portions, the interview process the first four days and fitness testing on Friday and Saturday. There, they'll ask the potential soon-to-be Panthers about anything from families, to strengths and weaknesses in their games to what they do in their free time among other topics.

How the players answer will tell a lot to the Florida brass and will help in who they draft when they come on the clock on the late Sunday at the Prudential Center.
