Hockey East will be well represented, between current players and recruits, at the 2014 NHL Draft Combine in Toronto later this month.

Boston College goaltender Thatcher Demko, the league's top goalie statistically last winter, is the only current Hockey East player to get an invite to Toronto for the combine that will take place May 26-31.

Eagles recruits Sonny Milano and Alex Tuch were also invited. Jerry York's program saw 26 alums play in the National Hockey League this season, by far the most of any NCAA school.

New Hampshire and Boston University each saw two recruits placed into the combine. Forward Shane Eiserman from the Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL) and Warren Foegele of St. Andrew's College (Ontario) are the two Wildcat commits.

Defensemen Jonathan MacLeod of the USNTDP and Brandon Hickey of Spruce Grove (AJHL) are the two future Terriers to make the combine.

UConn recruit Miles Gendron out of the Rivers School will also be in Toronto for the combine. Toronto Junior Canadians defenseman Jake Walman, a Providence recruit and the top-rated pro prospect in the OJHL, will stay close to home for the combine.

The 2014 NHL Draft takes place June 27-28 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa.
