    On the road: A peek into the mind and eye of the Canadiens...

    Paywall. A look at Churla, the Montreal Canadiens Director of amateur scouting.

    So, you don't have to have played in the NHL to be an amateur scout. But to succeed, you need to do more than just report on how he played in today's game. Scouts often look at a guy perhaps as many as 12x/season to help them see past a clunker game, and focus in on what a player is capable of doing. And look at the non-offensive skills that might ensure him a spot on a NHL roster in a different role.

    Hello everyone! I'm an aspiring young hockey scout and I'm looking into getting my feet wet in the industry. I already took the SMWW course now I just need something small to start off with. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I have been thinking about taking that course for a while now, how would you rate it? What did you get out of it?

    It's a solid course. It gives you credibility.

    Is there a way to get to the NHL with a BSc and a MSc in statistics ? I'll finish my masters in a few month, so now would be the time to start searching for jobs.

    Sharks hiring. What's your experience?


    Might have to get in the door via internship.

    Interns for fall hiring already.

    It would be tough to jump right in to the NHL. But it's not too hard to get a gig with an OHL team or some other junior team. I don;t know much about outside of Ontario, but here a good amount of teams have volunteer analytic teams, it can be a grind but it gets your foot through the door.

    I’ve been hearing how professional sports teams are slowly moving away from contracting companies to manage all of the front offices it infrastructure like databases, networks, etc and moving towards having in house staff, but I never see openings for those types of jobs. Is it just a case of there being so few jobs and the people involved never leaving?

    My guess is that a majority of teams are just handing responsibility over to someone already in the organization.

    Paywall. Meet the Penguins VP of media relations. The one the players trust and listen to, in interacting with media and public. She's always thinking how the media will spin something. And inspiration for a number of girls/women to work in hockey.

    I am in italy right now and had dinner last night with a budfy who works for one of the top italian football clubs.

    We talked about this thread and while he is a huge hockey fan he found a disconnect between fans who tried to work behind the scenes and those whi maybe fans treated it like a business first.

    He came over to Europe during the lock out year and never left. He worked for both the leafs and Canadians at different times.

    We worked together at Leeds FC during the bad times and he used that as a launching plateform here in Italy.

    Fans assume they will sit at the big table from the word go.

    That is not how it works

    The view from the top of the bowl: A night behind the scenes...

    Paywall. Athletic reporter (not the one that follows the team) Steve Berman follows the Sharks broadcast team (TV and Radio) for a day, including the action on TV (periods one and two) and radio (period three). How they work together, the producer interacts with the talent, etc.

    Nice read.
