An elite two-way center, Spiridonov is very strong on his skates and hard to knock off the puck. One concern is his skating stride. He has very heavy feet and can seem sluggish when compared to some of his quicker peers. A workhorse, he can usually be found down low helping the cycle move or being a front-net presence. He is not a particularly great passer or shooter and seems to prefer to clear space while others do the heavy lifting in the offensive zone. He has a great hockey IQ and understanding of the game and its situations as well as an underrated wrist shot in terms of accuracy and velocity. His size and strength are a major asset along the wall where he protects the puck with ease. He backchecks with determination and shows powerful strides. He excels at stripping opponents of the puck from behind on the backcheck. He thinks the defensive side of game at a high level, always backing up his forwards. He’s very strong on his skates, has strong lower body balance and always keeps his feet moving. As a great defender who always plays behind the puck, he has excellent instincts to know when to jump into board battles or to protect the front of the net. His biggest strengths are his play without the puck and attention to details.
