Season in Review: Jordan Spesak Published on 5/9/2012 3:34:00 PM
#12: Jordan Spesak
Weight: 165 lbs.
Birth Year: 1994
The youngest player on the 2011-2012 roster, Jordan Spesak was in and out of the lineup throughout his rookie season of junior hockey.
Never once though did he show frustration, complain or mope and he was always supportive of both his coaches and his teammates.
A big kid that does not truly know his size, Spesak’s body is built to play in the corners and crash the crease. He has a long stride but can build up decent speed and also harnesses a good shot.
If he wants to get more playing time, he needs to realize that his size can force turnovers and with more aggression, he can be a force. As he gets older and stronger, he will learn however, so Head Coach Jocelyn Lanlglois has been patient with him.
In his 19 games played, the Valencia native collected a goal and two assists in limited time. His first and only junior hockey goal was a big one, as he put home a power play marker on November 6 against Fresno, in front of the home crowd to boot.
He is an easy kid to like and gets along well with everybody. He follows direction from the coaching staff well and works hard in practice.
When he comes back to camp in the fall, the Flyers expect him to have added some weight to his big frame and aggression to his game.
If he can do both of those things, he can be a very effective fore-checking role player, who can chip in offensively when needed
