This is an interesting point. I've been trying to avoid being that amateur "HF" scout when watching games because after doing that for a few years I realised that I no longer enjoyed watching hockey for the game.

As for the original question, I asked Blair Mackasey a couple years ago in an email (which I thought I saved but apparently didn't). Basically he said to get involved with the local junior team and work from there.
