Cole Spicer is a two-way centerman who can play an effective game in all three zones. The defensive side of his game is an area he excels in. He can easily identify his assignment in the defensive zone, and he is able to stick to him like glue. He is an above-average skater. He has a quick stride and powerful lower body that allows him to generate good speed as he goes up and down the ice. When he combines his skating and high motor, he is able to frustrate his opponents in a variety of ways. He never lets his size hold him back, and he loves to get into the dirty areas and engage in physical battles. He has shown a knack for winning 50/50 puck battles and getting possession for his team. Offensively he makes his money as a facilitator, because he has good vision and patience with the puck on his stick. He can work from the half-wall or below the goal line, and deliver crisp and accurate passes into the slot, setting his teammates up for quality scoring opportunities. His offensive game has developed nicely over the season – a positive sign – and if he continues to work on that aspect, he has the potential to become a quality player at the next level. Adding some weight to his frame will allow him to become more dominant in 50/50 puck battles and will allow him to physically outmatch his opponents more frequently, something he’s currently on the wrong end of. If he finds consistency in his offensive game, he can become a great middle-six center who can excel as a checking forward while chipping in some solid offensive production. Spicer has a future as a good even-strength player and a potentially elite penalty killer thanks to the skillset and processing of the game he is already in possession of.
