SFU Hockey is proud to introduce Spencer Unger as the fifth member of the 2016/17 recruiting class. Unger joins the Clan after wrapping up his Junior career with the Aldergrove Kodiaks. Unger was a member of the Kodiaks team that won the PJHL championship in 2014. The Surrey native joins the Clan with over 140 games of junior hockey experience.
Unger will be counted on to be a two-way player for the team, and on the offensive side of the puck is more of a playmaker, “I am always looking to get my teammates the goal rather than myself.” Unger is excited to be a part of the team adding “I can’t wait to put on the Clan jersey.”
Unger’s junior career was split between the Kodiaks and the Surrey Eagles of the BCHL where he had 16 points (8-8) in the 2014/15 season. Last year he returned to Aldergrove where he finished 11th in PJHL scoring by putting up 49 points (16-33) in 43 games. Unger will also be reuniting SFU Assistant Coach Tom Spencer, who was his Head Coach with the Valley West Hawks of the BC Major Midget League.
Aldergrove Kodiaks Head Coach Trevin Sewell sees Unger as a player that SFU fans will grow to like very quickly. “I can see him becoming a fan favourite with the way he plays the game. He’ll block shots, be hard on the puck and crash and bang all over the ice.” When asked to descried what to expect from his game Sewell added “He’s a high energy 200-foot player, who brings a lot of speed to the game. He’s well respected by his teammates and is a leader on and off the ice.”
Spencer is the 5th recruit for the 2016-17 season for SFU. The Clan are poised to have a very strong recruiting class as they look to bounce back after a disappointing end to 2015/16. Three more 2016/17 recruit announcements are expected before the start of training camp on August 29th.
