He began the role with the 2006-07 season, IIRC. He was an amateur scout for about eight years prior to that. When Paul Holmgren replaced Bob Clarke as the GM, he elevated Chris Pryor and added Don Luce to a personnel role.
When Clarke was the GM, I think Dennis Patterson had the title of Chief Scout.
Some of the scouts you have listed are regional. Jack McIlhargey for instance tends to scout in the West. I think he lives in the Vancouver area.
Simon Nolet's primary role is the Q. He's had a say in players ranging from Simon Gagne (
correction from Simon Nolet -- meant Gagne
) to Marc-Andre Bourdon.
Mark Greig is an amateur scout whose primary focus is the WHL.
Jack Riley concentrates on the New England area, I think.
Todd Hearty is an amateur scout who recently worked for Anaheim.
Patrick Burke, Brian's son, attends law school in Massachusetts.
Wade Clarke, Bob's son, covers the USHL.
Ilkka Sinisalo is a Finnish/European scout and his son was in the Flyers' camp in 2009.
Didn't Simon Nolet also scout Claude Girioux ?I think i read that a while back.
