It has always been a dream of mine to get into hockey, but sadly as a kid, my skill didnt bring me much farther than rec leagues and the fourth line of my college's club hockey team. most people i've talked to about the hockey "biz" say that its a very in the system thing, meaning that players are the ones who usually become coaches and scouts and hold managment positions, which for a decent part is true. How would someone who was not a player such as myself beging working their way into the hockey business? How would one work their way to becoming a scout? or even a coach or GM for that matter? Who are some current people in the hockey world who have no prior NHL experience?
You simply have to check the bios of NHL staff and you will see dozens and dozens.
You can do the same with various scouting services, CHL clubs, agencies etc. etc.
NHL experience is not required for most jobs.
