Spencer Sova will be wearing an Erie Otters jersey next season. The 8th overall pick in the 2020 OHL Draft quietly climbed the draft boards playing on a highly touted Honeybaked team.

For Sova, hearing his named called so early in the draft was a thrill.

“Being selected by Erie so high in the draft was truly and amazing feeling. It was one of the best moments in my hockey career,” said Sova.

The Windsor born player, who has roots in Chatham-Kent, scored 57 points in 57 games for Honeybaked this season. Not bad for a defenceman. Next year, Sova is simply hoping to contribute to the Otters in any way he can as an OHL rookie.

“Next year when I hit the ice I’m hoping to do whatever is needed to contribute to my teams success,” Sova said.

“As a rookie I am hoping to adapt to the league quickly and get used to how they play. I am also looking to make a big impact for my team.”

Sova has been an impact player wherever he’s gone. To make sure he can continue to have that impact, he’s putting in the offseason work to get stronger, and bigger before playing in the OHL.

“This offseason I am looking to gain more weight and get a lot stronger and faster. I am doing this with the help of my trainer Rob Maggio. For on ice skills, just hoping to improve all aspects of my game.”

After working his way to the top of the OHL draft, Sova can now set his sights on a successful first campaign in the league, and beginning to garner looks from OHL scouts.
