Observations

June 2020 – Spence has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Kings that will see him become a restricted free agent at the end of the 2022-2023 season. Spence has shown improvements in his development in the QMJHL putting up 52 points in 60 games before the season was cancelled. He may need some more time before he is NHL ready the changing of the guard in Los Angeles is in full force especially on the blue line, and with the team likely moving on from some UFA defencemen, the trickle down effect in the organization should leave some minor league roster spots up for Spence to grab. Julian Mongillo

 

March 2020 – Spence defines what all NHL teams are looking for, which is a young offensive puck-moving defenseman. His strong skating ability in both directions allows him to close gaps on defense and contribute largely on offense. Drafted by the Moncton Wildcats of the QMJHL in 2018 the young blueliner has since put together two straight seasons with over 45 points and also claimed QMJHL rookie and defensive rookie of the year honors. He has a ways to go in terms of development and much of it has to do with building muscle and maturing on the defensive side of the puck. Julian Mongillo
