With eight picks beginning in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft, Senior Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman and Vice President of Amateur Scouting Mark Kelley have their work cut out for them, tasked with determining which players make the final draft board. One of the main resources that the hockey operations department utilizes is the reports filed by the team's amateur scouts, who watch and evaluate dozens of young players throughout their draft-eligible seasons.
These scouting reports will help determine which names join the Blackhawks prospect pool, just as they have for many current Blackhawks, including some three-time Stanley Cup winners. Can you identify the roster player based on an excerpt from a real scouting report? Test your knowledge below for a chance to win Blackhawks prizes!
