Marshall Mackinder: Prospect Profile



Marshall Mackinder joined the Hockey Now staff in November 2015 and brings a wealth of knowledge from a scouting standpoint in junior hockey, as well as 10 years in the sports marketing & advertising field.

A native of the Detroit, Michigan now living in the Vancouver suburbs as a dual citizen, Mackinder attended Niagara University from 2001-05 and worked as the Purple Eagles’ NCAA Division I men’s team’s student equipment manager for four years which included a trip to the NCAA Regionals in 2003.  Upon graduation, he took a sales position with the Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers before moving to minor league baseball for several years in Rockford, Ill., serving as Assistant General Manger of Sales & Marketing for the Frontier League’s Rockford Riverhawks.

He also worked in advertising sales for community newspapers in the Lower Mainland upon his arrival in Canada.

In 2011, Mackinder, 32, was named a Western Hockey League and British Columbia Hockey League scout for Red Line Report, an independent scouting newsletter that focuses solely on NHL Draft-eligible prospects.

Away from work, Mackinder has four children – Iain (9), Bryony (7) and newborn twins, Penelope and Amelia.
