Jonathan Huberdeau may have just finished leading the Saint John Sea Dogs to a Memorial Cup victory, but that didnt stop him from participating in the grueling physical testing at Fridays NHL Combine. Assane Demoya Gnoukouri Inter Milan Maglia . Fresh off being named Memorial Cup MVP, Huberdeau arrived in Toronto looking to improve his draft stock even more than he already has with a strong performance in the second half of the CHL season. "Im a little bit tired with all the emotion we went through winning the Memorial Cup, but I think thats hockey and you have to deal with it," Huberdeau stated. "I just did the tests and it went pretty well I think." At last years combine, top prospect Taylor Hall chose not to participate in the physical testing, in part due to the fact he was coming off a Memorial Cup appearance as well. The decision didnt hurt Hall, who went on to be selected with the first overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft by the Edmonton Oilers. Halls precedent didnt stop Huberdeau from displaying his off-ice athleticism for scouts this year. "If everybodys doing it, Im going to do it. They know Im tired, but they know Im going to do the best I can," said Huberdeau. "There was no reason why I wouldnt do it." The Oilers are on the clock once again this year, and while Huberdeaus second half surge has put him in the running for the top pick, the favourites to have their name called out first at the 2011 NHl Draft on June 24 are Red Deer Rebels centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Swedish defenceman Adam Larsson. "I dont want [the draft process] to be over with. Its been great so far. You only go through it once so Im just trying to enjoy it as much as I can," said Nugent-Hopkins. The 61", 170-pound Nugent-Hopkins led the WHL in assists this season with 75 and finished fourth in overall points with 106 in 69 games played, but the combine proved to be a whole new experience for him. "It was definitely a little bit different then just going to the gym and working out with your peers. I walked in and I didnt really expect how many people would be here, but it was cool," he said. "Im not a big bench press guy, as you can probably tell," joked Nugent-Hopkins after posting six reps with the 150-pound bar. Boston University defenceman Adam Clendening, Sea Dogs forward Tomas Jurco, and Prince Albert Raiders forward Mark McNeil powered their way to 13 reps on the bench, the most on the day. Clendening also earned the top push-up total with 40, while McNeil had the best push strength with 366 pounds and was second to U.S. National Team forward Tyler Biggs, who had a pull strength of 323 pounds.  Portland Winterhawks forward Ty Rattie and Shawinigan Cataractes defenceman Jonathan Racine earned bragging rights by posting the top score on the the dreaded Wingate Cycle Ergometer, which measures a players peak power output. Both players registered 15.9 watts of energy per kilogram of body weight. Racine also had the best long jump with 119.3 inches. Larsson was the only top prospect to emerge on top in an event, lasting 14 minutes in the VO2 Max test, tied with Vancouver Giants David Musil. Moose Jaw Warriors defenceman Joel Edmundson had the longest wing span at 79.24 inches, and Rogle defenceman Rasmus Bengtsson had the lowest body fat with 3.6 percent. Portland defenceman Joseph Morrow and Saginaw Spirit forward Vincent Trocheck earned top marks in the vertical jump hitting 30.3 inches, and Swift Current Broncos defenseman Reece Scarlett did 51 curl ups to take that event. While there are different schools of thought when it comes to how the combine stats translate to on-ice performance, regardless of how much weigh you put into the numbers the focus now begins to turn to the draft itself, something the players are looking forward to.  "Its exciting. I cant wait to be in Minnesota on June 24," admitted Huberdeau. "You never know whats going to happen, where you are going to go. I think I did my job on the ice and Ill just see what happens in June." Mauro Icardi Maglia . You can catch all of the action live NOW on TSN and TSN GO. The Eastern Conference finals are set with Montreal scheduled to host the New York Rangers in Game 1 on Saturday, but the Chicago Blackhawks are still waiting for an opponent in the West. Ivan Perisic Inter Milan Maglia . -- Nearly everything had to go right for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to pull off their latest comeback.TORONTO - A coalition of more than 60 organizations on Monday launched a nation-wide campaign to get schools to allocate at least an hour each day as physical activity time for students. Called "Active at School," the campaign is spearheaded by Canadian Tire and supported by the federal government. Partner organizations comprise sports, health and wellness organizations, including the Canadian Olympic Committee and Nike. The campaign was announced at Torontos Ryerson University by Canadian Tire CEO Stephen Wetmore, who said the coalition will spend the next three months speaking with provincial governments. Wetmore said he hopes a "game plan" will be developed in the next 12 months. "Then its a matter of going to every region, every school board, and specifically, sometimes, schools, to figure out what the exact program is," Wetmore said. Small-town schools may lack funding or equipment, he added, while urban schools may have different challenges, such as safety, due to the higher traffic. It is hoped all schools will be on board by 2017, Canadas 150th anniversary, though that is not a haard deadline, Wetmore said. Jonathan Biabiany Inter Milan Maglia. Youth inactivity is a growing problem, with one-third being obese and only 12 per cent meeting Health Canada guidelines for physical activity, Health Minister Rona Ambrose said at the announcement. While physical activity is important for all ages, it is "absolutely crucial" for children, Ambrose said, adding that the federal government has spent more than $200 million in obesity-related research since 2006. According to a study released in 2011 by the Canadian Institute for Health Information and the Public Health Agency, obesity costs the economy at least $4.6 billion a year. The National Hockey League is one of the campaigns partner organizations, and commissioner Gary Bettman said the NHL recognizes the importance of getting youth to be active, with numerous teams already running programs that encourage youth participation. The partner organizations, the NHL included, can use their reach and visibility to get the message of staying active across, Bettman said. "Whats not possible is to accomplish a goal if youre just sitting around," he said. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
