    Spence reminds me of a smaller Martinez, really. Solid defensively, some offensive flair at lower levels, and a smart player. I think he skates better than Alec, but lacks some of his strength.

    FWIW, Alec was consistently ranked 11-20 in the prospect rankings, I'm not sure he even made it in the top 10 before he was brought up for good. I'd love to see him in the WJC to see how he reacts. One thing Alec had was the ability to elevate his game when things got really important, and that's something Spence will probably need to have a good shot at succeeding in the NHL.

    Jordan Spence through 12 games has:
    16 points
    5G
    11A

    He is tenth in scoring in the QMJHL.
    He leads his team in scoring,by a lot.
    Which doesn't say a lot for his team, and it shows in their record, and his +/-. (-4)

    This kid has a ton of potential.

    Really nice article on Jordan Spence on the Athletic today. For those of you who just can't get enough of Kings and their dogs, we learn Spence's family has a dog....

    First Muzzin had a dog named Darryl, and now Spence has a dog named Doughty. :laugh:

    Am I reading too much into the fact that they named their FEMALE dog after him? Implying something possibly?

    Out of 22 skaters. 20 were 1st round NHL draft picks. One was a second rounder, and then Spence was the lone skater drafted beyond the second round (4/95). Pretty cool.

    I f***ing love it.

    Even if he doesn't fully play full time that's a great experience and quite a breakthru for a later pick!

    But he's a versatile player and a righty, he's a good guy to have since he can cover for anyone that goes down. He's not PP only or PK only etc

    I am hard pressed to think of any organization that has ever been as strong on right side defense as the Kings right now.

    Doughty
    Roy
    Walker

    Grans
    Spence
    Faber

    Outstanding depth, with a variety of skill sets and bracketed out well in terms of age and likely NHL entries. Few teams can ever say that they have zero concerns with their RD situation.

    Just off the top of my head I can think of Pietrangelo-Parayko and Weber-Petry but yeah after that behind them it typically falls right apart

    Nashville had some ridiculous depth circa 2014: Shea Weber, Ryan Ellis, Seth Jones, and Kevin Klein. I was always puzzled why they traded for Cody Franson at the 2015 deadline.

    I figured one of the Nashville teams might have the goods but I couldn't remember that Ellis/Jones were there at the same time and I never could remember who came after. Klein did have a good career! Typical underrated Predator depth D.

    Wild cards for them in goal, but the skaters are absurd

    Yes, yes absolutely right I think Goalie is perhaps their weakness but everywhere else is pretty much pick your poison. And their "D" Byram, Drysdale, Harley, Guhle, Schneider is their top 5. WTFFFF.....

    I really really dig Strand. I think he's a long shot but all the tools are there and he's just a good kid that you can root for.

    Have you actually watched him play? Btw, I haven't. So, I'm not calling you out, I'm seriously curious because most I've read is he's AHL at best.

    Just thought I'd re-post this post. This kid is looking like a warrior.
