The Seattle Thunderbirds have promoted Mark Romas to director of scouting.

Romas replaces Dan McLean, who joined the Pittsburgh Penguins as an amateur scout on Aug. 18.

“Mark was the natural choice for our director of scouting,” said general manager Russ Farwell. “He has done a great job for us as our Manitoba scout and he is eager to take on a bigger role on our staff. This job needs a detail focused guy and Mark will fill that perfectly.”

Romas has been the team’s Manitoba scout for the previous six seasons and will continue in that capacity as the director of scouting. Romas is entering his 25th season in scouting. Prior to joining the T-Birds, he was a scout for the Moose Jaw Warriors from 1992 to 1998 and the Regina Pats from 1998 to 2010.

“I would like to thank Russ Farwell and Cal Filson for promoting me to director of scouting,” Romas said. “I am sincerely grateful to them for this opportunity and the confidence they have shown in me.”

“It’s a privilege to work with such a great scouting staff. I look forward to continued success with the Thunderbirds through our collective scouting efforts as we prepare each season for the WHL Bantam Draft,” Romas said.
