This past year we had 5 video scouts, 3 of which were playing professional hockey in Europe, 1 was a retired coach who didn’t have great mobility to get around and another was a new scout breaking into the industry. If you are interested in a video scouting position where you would be in charge of scouting a specific junior league or age group, please email Ed Besinger, Director of Video Scouting, at firstname.lastname@example.org Include your resume.
