Review of CSSHL rinks on HockeyTV

Updated: Nov 1, 2021

Stand Out Sports is licensed to use footage recorded by HockeyTV. We have ranked every CSSHL rink that is recorded on HockeyTV to help you better select the games that will showcase your ability.


Our editors are always available to create you a Recruiting Video to send coaches and scouts. Although we work with any footage recorded on HockeyTV, not all arenas are recorded to the same standards and the quality of recording will effect the overall quality of the finished video.

There are two main factors that go into our assessment of a rinks footage on HockeyTV:

  1. Placement of Camera: the ideal camera location for a recruiting video is at center ice and raised high above the glass, which allows our editing team to frame your actions throughout the duration of the game. Subpar camera locations are at ice level and / or off center, which make sit difficult for our editing team to identify and frame your actions during a game.

  2. Camera Operation: the ideal camera operation (whether from a human or automated software) is smooth and zoomed out enough to view all of the players at once, which allows our editing team frame your actions in the best manner possible. Subpar camera operation is often too zoomed in and / or not smooth enough to keep players in frame consistently.

To demonstrate the camera placement and operation at each CSSHL rink, we have included a brief video clip from every arena as well as a camera operation score ranging from Ideal, Suitable, Inconsistent and Subpar.
