If one were seeking an informed opinion on the prospects available for the 2014 NHL Draft, you could certainly not find a much more well-informed individual than the Director of NHL Central Scouting, Dan Marr.
Marr, who stepped into his current role nearly three years ago following the death of his predecessor, E.J. McGuire, does his share of scouting the prospects over the course of the season. But, in addition to his own viewings, Marr also receives input from Central Scouting's staff of scouts spread across North America, as well as from the European Scouting Services group located in Europe.
A veteran of the scouting scene, Marr has spent almost 30 years plying his trade both in North America and Europe. Before taking the job with Central Scouting, he spent 12 years with the Toronto Maple Leafs before moving to the Atlanta Thrashers, where he worked until the team moved to Winnipeg.
Marr was in Toronto, ON last weekend for Central Scouting's main event, the NHL Combine. He took some time during the testing portion to speak with the media, with a portion of that chat being captured in this HF video.
