NHL Scouts at Winter Olympics?


Recommended Posts

What with the Sochi Winter Olympics done and dusted, I was curious as to whether or not any non professional free agents were ever signed to an NHL team after agents witnessed individual performances of such.

I'm aware that some players from the "Miracle On Ice" USA team had successful NHL careers, but I'm unfamiliar with the pretenses that got them in the NHL to begin with.

Anyone care to chime in on this?

To answer your question in the title - NHL teams did indeed send scouts to the olympics to look for gems/trading partners etc. a friend of mine's dad is a professional scout and went over to Sochi for that exact purpose. I guess it's just a matter of finding a player you want to take that chance on.
