Top Draft Hockey is a premier sports management firm and hockey development group with seven offices across North America and Europe. We provide the necessary skills, both mentally and physically, that scouts, GM's and coaches are looking for. From player advisor services, to representation, to training programs, to our world renowned development camps featuring 12 NHL Scouts and 12 D1 Coaches - TDH encompasses a wider range of services than any other hockey group you will find.
Established in 2007, Top Draft Hockey has quickly become the pinnacle advisor firm for players seeking NCAA scholarships and European contracts. No other advisor firm has placed as many players on the NCAA D1 circuit over the past 13 years than Top Draft Hockey. With 40+ athletes currently playing Division 1 hockey, an additional 15+ commits indexed over the next few years, and former D1 graduates playing professionally or now retired, TDH is unsurpassed in college hockey placement and scholarship attainment.
We have created a stronghold in the sports management field through our many hockey and business relationships and our experienced personnel. Our front office consists of former NHL and Pro players and draft picks, former OHL managers and scouts, MBA, B.Comm, Sports Admin and Kinesiology graduates, two agents currently pursuing their NHLPA certification, and some of the brightest hockey development staff you will find. We have negotiated contracts at every level of hockey from pro, to college, to major junior, and we are well versed in the NCAA protocol having three former NCAA players on staff.
Everything we do at Top Draft Hockey improves our player's hockey development and academic standards through state-of-the-art training systems, player marketing, advanced analytics, SAT/ACT prep, on and off-ice testing, and online applications. TDH believes in challenging and changing the scope of the sports management field through innovative ideas and advanced business practices - we think differently and we get results.
Top Draft would not be where it is today without this man. With four grandsons and two nephews working at TDH, Red Sullivan has been an inspiration to us all.
The former NHL veteran epitomized class, character and work ethic - essential components of TDH today. With grandsons Ryan Treacy, Dennis Treacy, Connor Treacy, Kelly Sullivan and Shane Sullivan, and nephews Steve Sullivan and Paul Fleming at the helm of Top Draft, we have all looked up to the elder Sullivan for guidance, leadership and inspiration over the years.
After a successful 12 year NHL playing career that included the captaincy of the New York Rangers, Red moved on to become the Head Coach of the Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals, before settling in as a long-time NHL Scout with the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins and NHL Central Scouting.
A true professional through-and-through, Red inspired us all at Top Draft with his professionalism, hard work (on and off the ice), and his ability to identify talent. Our own development work at the NHL level and scouting positions in Major Junior are a direct result of the leadership, mentorship, and inspiration we received from the late, great George "Red" Sullivan.
