How do you get your youth hockey player scouted?

Many youth hockey players dream of playing in college, the juniors, or of getting a chance to one day play in the pros. But how do you help your child achieve that goal, and what do scouts look for? Here's a great article from jrhockeyrecruit.com about what college scouts look for where the author interviews Michigan State University's Tom Newton:

It is interesting to note how attitude, grades, and hockey sense are weighted higher by Newton than some other factors such as points and goal scoring. It is also notable that players can be scouted later than their first year of Midgets, and that there are some successful "late bloomers" who get drafted later in their youth tier careers.
