Otters Select Spencer Sova Eighth Overall
Erie, Pennsylvania - The Erie Otters Hockey Club today announced the selection of defenseman Spencer Sova of Detroit Honeybaked eighth overall in the first round of the 2020 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.
Sova, a 6'1", 174-pound defenseman, appeared in 14 games with Detroit Honeybaked U15 during the HPHL season. The Windsor, Ontario native tallied seven points (2G-5A) along with 15 PIM during the 19-20 season. The 16-year-old also spent time with Honeybaked's Midget squad, playing in 57 games averaging a point per game (19G-38A) pace.
OHL Priority Selection Information Guide: Spencer has all the tools to be an elite defenseman at the next level. He has the ability to dominate the play and take over a game when he wants to. He is a powerful and strong skater that gets up to top speed quickly with great edge work and mobility. He has a hammer from the offensive blue line and moves his feet well to create lanes for himself. His coaches did a great job with his team, and he was a product of that. He will have no problem stepping up to the next level.
