About us

Draftin Europe is an independent scouting service started by Mik Portoni and Niki Funa,
former scouts for Europe at HockeyProspect.com.

In the past we felt prospects in Europe hardly received scouting coverage on par with their North American counterparts, we decided to go into this project to provide more European prospects the coverage we feel they deserve.
Draftin Europe focuses specifically on scouting hockey prospects playing in Europe and aims to produce a publication for the NHL draft that provides a deeper look into the pool available on this side of the pond.

The Blue Dispatch is a digital publication released by Draftin Europe.
As a draft guide, our Blue Dispatch will present a comprehensive look at the prospects playing in Europe that we consider relevant for the upcoming NHL entry drafts. For more details, you can take a look at the free preview we published back in April.

We would like to thank you for your interest in our product and we hope you will support us in the challenge, making this a sustainable project moving forward.
