From the Back Cover: The Art of Scouting delves into the secretive world of hockey prospecting, a world more akin to Cold War–era spying than a casual day in the stands. Scouts decide whether a player has the talent to make the final step to the NHL–or not–but what they do and how they do it are a mystery to most fans. Shane Malloy is one of the first media personalities to be welcomed into the world of scouting and brings to hockey fans an enlightening and fascinating narrative that explains the culture, history, science and art of hockey scouting. Malloy′s unique experience–combined with interviews featuring scouts, coaches and hockey executives– will give readers a true understanding and appreciation for what scouts do and how they do it, what it really takes to make it to the NHL, and how to watch the game like a scout. Praise for The Art of Scouting : "If you love hockey but wonder how teams are built and what goes into scouting, then this book is a gem." — Kelly Hrudey, Hockey Night in Canada Analyst "The work that Shane has done is based on knowledge and diligence. We have great respect for this project as it has tremendous substance to it. An excellent source of information."  —Doug Wilson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, San Jose Sharks "If you have ever been at a hockey game and seen the scouts in the corner and wondered what they do, how they do it and why they do it , The Art of Scouting by Shane Malloy will take you inside their world." —Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider "For anyone fascinated by player evaluation and what goes into it, this is a must–read. Interesting perspectives and a good cast of characters. Thought–provoking and entertaining." —Peter Loubardias, Hockey Broadcaster,Rogers Sportsnet " The Art of Scouting provides readers with a behind–the–scenes view of the sport′s lifeblood...scouting and the people that do it...A great read for any hockey fan." —Brad Treliving, Vice President and Assistant General Manager, Phoenix Coyotes
