The criteria are based on (200+) NHL games played and evaluating the player after five seasons from their entry draft (NHL Draft +5 Years).

The (200+ NHL Games) were based on behavioral economic models and expected utility theory. The (5+ Years) are based on cognitive science research of male frontal lobe brain development.

Dr. Kevin Willis

Sport Psychology Consultant, Peak Performance Mental Coach, Level 5 USA Hockey Coach

If a player wants to reach their potential as a hockey player, they must continually build their mental toughness skills right alongside their other hockey skills.

So, for the past 20 years coaching players in this great game, from mites to juniors, I have always tried to emphasize that in addition to teaching the kids hockey skills like skating, passing, and shooting, that I would make sure they learned mental toughness skills that would give them an edge over their competitors. I knew that talent was important in hockey, but that talent alone wasn't enough.
