Added service will increase opportunities for virtual recruiting
(DETROIT, MICHIGAN – September 18, 2020) – The Michigan Hockey Advancement (MHA) program has announced an agreement with The Prospect Exchange (TPE) for the 2020-21 season. The agreement will provide MHA student-athletes access to virtual resources such as video breakdowns by shift and analytics.
“We’re ecstatic to add a platform like TPE for our players,” said Rick Gadwa, Total Package Hockey Director of Hockey-Operation & Programming in Detroit. “It’s a massive step for our program for player advancement and exposure. Michigan Hockey Advancement is focused on doing what’s best for our players. Giving our players the opportunity to take their exposure to another level and helping them through the process of advancement in getting to the next level is our main goal. Joining with TPE helps us accomplish that.”
Players will be able to build profile that will have their data. They will be able to send that data, along with videos to both college and junior coaches. All of this will be included in their current tuition as well. During a time when travel for some coaches and scouts may be difficult, this is an excellent opportunity for players to be seen.
“As a former junior coach, I have always thought that some of the best hidden gems came from Michigan high school hockey,” said John Becanic, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of TPE. “With the MHA including TPE as part of their program, hopefully we can help uncover some of these gems and bring them to the forefront. With the ability to connect and share their shift video directly with junior and college coaches, exposure will no longer be an issue for these players.”
As the game continues to change and evolve, MHA continues to lead in a rapidly changing environment. By including TPE, it shows the commitment MHA has to its players.
“The game itself is already fast changing and evolving, and now with the pandemic, it’s really changed things, said Gadwa. “It’s expedited virtual recruiting. This is just another step we’re taking to stay current and make sure we’re doing everything we can for our players.”
