b) Get a video clip(s) of him
c) send it to all the coaches in the CHL, ECHL and IHL.
d) Tell him to follow up with calls to these teams.

Here is the biggy
e) Have him do his homework on the teams he wants. Here is why… a team gets resumes all the time. They are looking for surefire winners. (it is called being lazy). They don’t want to take a chance. If he makes it hard for them to say no – he has a chance. Look at where the team is having shortfalls… then say to the coach “I can help you with …”

f) get a list of references that these coaches can call – the more NHL or high profile the better.

Now, if you send me a PM, I will send you an example of a supped up resume.
Hope this helps!
