A former National Hockey League forward and current pro scout, Mark Mowers joins Kirk Luedeke on the latest New England Hockey Journal’s “RinkWise” podcast.
A native of Decatur, Ga., Mowers played four seasons of Division 1 college hockey at the University of New Hampshire (1994-98) before a seven-year NHL career saw him suit up for four different franchises. Following his retirement, Mowers got into scouting, landing his first pro job with the Montreal Canadiens in 2012. He went on to spend two years in the Buffalo Sabres organization, before starting his current role with the Minnesota Wild in 2019.
Veteran youth hockey coach Bruce Haas also joins the show to talk about his book “Great Game!: D-1 College Hockey: People, Places, Perspective,” an award-winning book on men’s Division 1 college hockey.
