Debenedet spent three years with the Michigan State Spartans, then turned pro with the Fort Wayne Comets and returned to school and played a year with the University of Toronto before signing an NHL contract in 1971. Debendet signed with the Detroit Red Wings and spent the next two seasons playing minor pro but made his NHL debut during the 1973-74 season.
