Fitness is no problem for Sarnia Sting forward Jordan Kyrou.

Kyrou tested ahead of teammate Jakob Chychrun, Future Considerations’ top-ranked defenseman, and Jake Bean of the Calgary Hitmen, to finish atop the overall standings in the on-ice portion of testing at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

Alex DeBrincat of the Erie Otters and Libor Hajek of the Saskatoon Blades tied for fourth in the skating drills, which included forward and backwards sprints, reaction, weave agility, and transition agility each performed both with and without the puck.

Goaltender Dylan Wells of the Peterborough Petes claimed top honors for goaltenders in specialized testing that included reaction, agility, and movement drills.

Chychrun finished with the overall top score in the off-ice component, followed by Pierre-Luc Dubois of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. Wells led all goaltenders and finished third in the off-ice portion, and Micheal McLeod of the Mississauga Steelheads was fourth. Kyrou finished fifth.
