Anyone have any insight on that. It's slightly off topic but does relate to Omark and others like him whom I assume are obviously trying to be "noticed" and win future NHL jobs.
I'm pretty sure some have had their pay scaled back a bit but the travel and duties are as per usual. Likely it is one of few "European scouts" that will be watching these games anyways doing both pro/amateur duties. A lot of the prospects play in mens leagues already so it's often 2 birds with 1 stone.
