    “Spencer is one of the best puck moving defenseman, if not the best, at his age level,” said Anders Sorensen, Spencer’s coach with the Chicago Mission U16 team. “His on-ice awareness both with and without the puck is elite. He has a very high skill level and is a great teammate."

    “Spencer really is the full package,” said Bridgedale Headmaster Mike McPartlin, himself an ND alum. “He excels academically in all his subjects, and athletically he combines an extremely high hockey IQ with great versatility. Notre Dame has landed themselves a great recruit and we at Bridgedale are very excited for Spencer and his family.”

    Congratulations to Spencer (and his parents Hoyt and Kathy) on his commitment to Notre Dame.
