Bodybuilding Medicine Ball: Who’s in?

With just one week to go until the 2018 NHL season, the bodybuilding world has seen a major influx of players entering the game of bodybuilding.

In the last 24 hours, there have been two players picked up by the Chicago Blackhawks and two players acquired by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It’s a bit of a jump in quality for the game, but it’s not all bad news for the sport.

Here’s a look at the top prospects in the sport right now, and how they compare to the rest of the league. 

For the sake of this article, I’ll be using the term “players” interchangeably with the term players in the NHL.

That doesn’t mean you can’t see that there are more than one or two players on a team, it just means that the most important players are in the top ten in the league right now. 

Here are the top five prospects in each of the leagues currently.

The names are the position of the player.
