101 NHL hopefuls are gathered in New Jersey for the NHL Scouting Combine.  The Combine involves a series of physical tests and examinations that are used to give prospective teams one last look before the NHL Draft later this summer.  One test that has been included in the combine since 2009 is a test of hand-eye coordination.  Studies show that regardless of the sport hand-eye coordination is superior in elite atheletes.  Studies also show that a 5 week vision training program can improve your hand-eye coordination.
