With player demand at an all time high in the United States, the Pre Draft Combine will be expanding to Europe in the Spring of 2018.
“We have been discussing the addition of European locations for the last year. Having Neil over in Sweden for a month developing those relationships that will allow us to expand to Europe, has helped us to align ourselves with some great organizations and some great people.” Said Joseph Kolodziej CEO Hockey Holdings Group Inc.
“Having the opportunity to spend the last few days of this most recent trip over there was fantastic. The teams and staff hospitality we experienced were second to none. One of the things we learned very early on is that the European player is not being properly educated on the opportunity available in the United States and Canada. There is a lot of deliberate misinformation and innocent inaccurate information being spread over there that needs to be addressed. I am looking forward to going back in the Spring as we travel across the continent testing players, educating families and giving them a forum to compete for increased opportunity.”
Test, Educate, Compete. The core principals of the Pre Draft Combine will be taken to a new level in 2018 as we make more investment into testing, scouting, and player data technology. These investments will bring players, scouts, and coaches more detailed testing, scouting, and contact information around the world.
The Pre Draft Combine will be announcing those European dates in the next few weeks as the hockey season gets underway.
Look for more exciting Pre Draft Combine announcements in the coming days.
