Whalers add scouts Debenham, Robert

The Plymouth Whalers have announced the hiring of Jim Debenham and Norm Robert to the team's scouting staff.

Debenham, in a sense, is coming home to Plymouth. He worked as the Whalers' director of scouting from 2002-09 before moving to Sarnia in the same position over the past three seasons.

Robert worked in Peterborough as a scout from 1996-2010 before moving to Sudbury as the Wolves’ scouting director for the past two seasons.

“We welcome Jim back,” said Plymouth coach-GM Mike Vellucci. “He brings a lot of experience and he already knows what kind of player we want to play Whaler hockey. Norm has a ton of experience in the Toronto area. I look forward to getting to know him and work with him.”

Debenham and Robert worked for the Central Scouting Bureau before moving on to Ontario Hockey League.
