The future stars of the NHL have skated their way into the Queen City, which is once again putting Western New York in the national spotlight.

The 2016 NHL Combine is being held at HarborCenter and is providing a big boost to the Buffalo economy.

"This event brings in about 2,000 room nights during the week with a million dollar impact," said Patrick Kaler, President and CEO of Visit Buffalo Niagara.

NHL Officials say they plan to discuss the possibility of bringing the Combine back to Buffalo again.
