Hockey Prospecting was officially launched in January 2020 though the concept of Hockey Prospecting started years ago after Byron started to notice distinct patterns and trends about players that tend to make the NHL and thrive. The Hockey Prospecting tools provide insight and aid with scouting, drafting, ELC signings, trading and prospect development tracking.
