I coach with a few ex-nhl players, explored this subject many times. Best advice I can give for someone with no contacts or player experience is to go down a prelaw path for your undergrad culminating with a post grad law degree OR, a business/management path for undergrad with an MBA or MSLM (master of science in logistics management) post grad degree. None of these guarantee you entry into the NHL business, but you're looking for a core educational foundation in operations management, the ability to successfully execute a business strategy, and those paths are a good start. Just my take from picking the minds of folks who have skated at a pro level and had or currently have some involvement with the clubs they've retired from.
