Over the last decade, how has the modern NHL player changed?

That’s the first question moderator Scott Wheeler, a national reporter with The Athletic covering the NHL Draft and prospects, posed to his elite panel during the Virtual Hockey Summit.

Three unique answers were given from three unique panelists, namely Chris Abbott, GM of Rogle BK in the SHL, Trevor Georgie, president & GM of the QMJHL’s Saint John Sea Dogs, and Pat Malloy, director at the Peak Centre for Human Performance.

The one thing they all agreed on is that the game is changing and so are the many ways that prospects are trained and developed before they ever touch NHL ice.
