Top Cheddar Episode #11 - Featuring Jesse Wallin. 1st Rounder, GM, Coach and Head Amateur Scout with the Detroit Red Wings
Jesse is currently the Head Amateur Scout for the Detroit Red Wings having just moved over from the St. Louis Blues (with a Stanley Cup for good measure!).
He was a Red Wing 1st round selection from the Rebels and he really enjoyed his time in the WHL, AHL and NHL with the Red Wings.
After his playing career, he rejoined the Red Deer Rebels as an Assistant Coach before making his way into both the Head Coach and GM positions.
He then took his skills in recognizing and developing young hockey talent into the world of pro scouting with the St. Louis Blues and now for the Detroit Red Wings.
We had a great chat including learning about the fact that Jesse drew much of his inspiration to play in the WHL from a book that Rob was fortunate to be a part of, the Making of Champions by Robert Olver. What a small world!
