Recommended Posts

Didn't Gretzky finish last in his rookie preseason camp for physical aptitude? Talent and determination served him well.

He's going to be an excellent hockey player for the Gophers.
But man, I laughed out loud when I read that he didn't record a single pull-up.  :)

My 9 year old daughter just did 13 pull ups for the "president's challenge"  . . . surprised they didn't let Casey do the "flexed arm hang" instead.

He's 5"11 190 and he could only bench 150 once. I think that's more shocking.

Hey, I have as much fun as anyone else yukking it up at Goldy's expense.  That said, this kid is going to have a positive impact for their program from day one.

And I positively enjoy making fun of him.

If all three of these aren't on a poster at the REA when we play the Gophers this year, I will be disappointed in our fans.

Someone else was pondering if Tony Hrkac could have done a pull up.  My guess would be no, but it just seems weird that with all the weight programs in schools and the emphasis on strength that it didn't take hold for him.  Skill wise, he sure has made the most of his time put in though, and I imagine by the end of the summer workouts a pull up shouldn't be a problem.

Found the Combine Fitness results.  Lists the top 25 in 14 different fitness categories.  Mittelstadt cracked the top 25 in one category (fatigue Index) test.  Which tells me he has a pretty good motor and has good endurance.  How much these fitness tests correlate with being a successful NHL player is up for debate I guess.
