Whalers add depth with rookie Nanji

The Plymouth Whalers announced today the signing of 16-year-old forward Adam Nanji to a standard Ontario Hockey League contract.

Nanji was selected by the Whalers in the ninth round (173rd overall) of the 2009 Ontario Hockey League draft.

After participating in rookie orientation camp in May and playing in Plymouth’s training camp in August, Nanji was recalled from the Streetsville Derbys of the Central Canadian Hockey League, where he had scored three goals with two assists for five points over 10 games.

Nanji reported to Plymouth today for practice, adds depth to the Whalers forward group and may see some temporary action this season.

Plymouth is currently playing without injured forwards Ryan Hayes, Jamie Devane, RJ Mahalak, Stefan Noesen and Austin Mattson.

Last week, the Whalers acquired 19-year-old right wing James Marsden from Kingston, who played on the road last weekend for Plymouth in Barrie, Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie.
