The Art of ScoutingeBook - 2013
The Art of Scouting delves into the secretive world of hockey prospecting, a world more akin to Cold War-era spying than a casual day in the stands. These are the people who decide whether someone has the talent to make the final step to the NHL--or not, and the future success of their organizations depends heavily on their skill. Wary of outsiders, these scouts keep tight-lipped about what they know and spread misinformation to their rivals. Shane Malloy, who has been covering hockey prospects, scouting, and player development for the past decade, is the first media personality to be welcomed into this world and brings to hockey fans an enlightening and fascinating narrative about the culture, history, science and art of hockey scouting. Through expert interviews and Malloy's unique experience, readers will gain a true understanding and appreciation for what scouts do and how they do it, what it really takes to make it to the NHL, and how to watch the game like a scout.
