Hockey Night to Remember: The Life of Brian “Spinner” Spencer
He was a kid who learned how to skate practically before he could walk. Born and raised in a
small northern Canadian town, Brian Spencer had a dream that one day he would make to the
National Hockey League. It was an irresistible desire that came with a lot of sacrifice for him
and his dad Roy. But their hard work and determination finally paid off when Brian was drafted
by the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1969.
Sadly on the night Brian was to make his Hockey Night in Canada debut, tragedy would eclipse
the momentous event. Brian’s NHL career would be forever overshadowed by what happened
on that fateful night and his life after hockey would descend into a world of darkness and
despair that he could never recover from.
