Scouting report

Spencer serves as the captain of the vaunted Oakville Rangers squad and has seen strong development over the past season. Already possessing pro size at 6-foot-2, 190 lbs, Spencer will have no issues adjusting to the OHL from a physical standpoint. His game is a little rough around the edges, but the potential ceiling is extremely high for this player. He’s got great feet and exceptional skating ability for a defenseman, allowing him to be a catalyst offensively as well as a difficult player to beat in his home end. Spencer’s game has drawn some parallels to last year’s #2 pick Roland McKeown, and the comparison is likely apt in a number of ways.
