Ryan Guenter is much more than any scout. Ryan is also a mental performance coach who got his masters degree from the University of Alberta and wrote his thesis on: the intangible player characteristics that scouts consider when scouting draft eligible aspects.
With the Bantam draft just a few days behind us, I would like to introduce you to my latest guest Ryan Guenter.
For the last decade, Ryan has been heavily involved in the scouting process for various Western Hockey League teams. He broke into the scouting industry as a foot soldier with the Chiliwack Bruins, and made his way to being a head scout a few years later.
Ryan is currently a scout for the Winnipeg Ice and is a mental performance consultant.
What makes Ryan so unique, is that he brings an educational aspect to the table that gives him a unique, but powerful perspective on the scouting industry.
Ryan wrote his thesis on the intangible player characteristics that scouts consider when scouting draft eligible aspects.
We dive into what this means, and how scouts are now looking beyond skating, stick handling and shooting abilities.
I hope you are ready to gain a whole new perspective on the power of the mind and the impact it has on the sport of hockey!
