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.
