Trenton Titans Get Bigger, Add Forward Tim Spencer

Lost in Trenton’s win on Wednesday and the addition of Todd Fedoruk behind the bench as an assistant was the fact that the Titans roster got a size upgrade.

Trenton has played most of this season with almost every forward being shorter than 6’2” and/or weighing less than 210 pounds. Before Wednesday, 6’2, 215 pound winger Chase Langeraap was the largest forward on the team.

This all changed on Wednesday afternoon when the Titans acquired forward Tim Spencer from the Chicago Express of the ECHL. Standing at 6’6” and weighing 230 pounds, Spencer brings a huge body and is easily the largest player on the team.

In eight games with Chicago this season, Spencer has one assist and 42 penalty minutes. The penalty time is why Spencer was added; he’s an enforcer and will be used as such.

His HockeyFights page shows Spencer is a veteran of approximately 100 fights at several levels of hockey including junior, ECHL, AHL and one NHL fight.

In 164 career ECHL games, spread over several teams since the 07-08 season, Spencer has eight goals, 20 assists and 536 penalty minutes. He also played four playoff games with the Florida Everblades in 2011 earning 26 penalty minutes and no points.

He has also played 54 AHL games since 2008 splitting time with Binghamton and Manitoba, tallying one goal, one assist and 197 penalty minutes..

He is expected to make his debut for the Titans Friday night in Kalamazoo when the Titans visit the K-Wings.
