Several players, many of whom are currently projected to go in the first round, will not be able to participate in all the combine's tests due to injuries sustained during their playing seasons.
Yakupov, Galchenyuk and Murray are among the the players whose injuries will limit their participation in the combine drills, according to NHL.com.
Other projected 1st rounders who are at the combine injured include Radek Faksa (concussion) of Kitchener, Mikhail Grigorenko (sprained ankle, shoulder) of Quebec, Martin Frk (concussion) of Halifax, Tanner Pearson (ankle) of Barrie, Jarrod Maidens (concussion) of Owen Sound, Zemgus Girgensons (hip and jaw) of Dubuque, Colton Sissons (concussion) of Kelowna and Thomas Wilson (MCL and broken knuckle) of Plymouth.
While a player's draft stock won't be affected much based on inability to participate in combine tests, it won't make the NHL teams' draft decisions any easier.
