Tauros 20 Questions: Spencer Zwiener

Minot, ND – As the 2016/17 NAHL season draws near we are giving Tauros fans a chance to meet all of the new members of the club as well as learn a little more about the returning Tauros.  We will play 20 questions with a different Tauro every day from now until the NAHL Showcase going in number order, today we catch up with veteran forward #17 Spencer Zwiener.

Zwiener comes to Minot with some NAHL experience playing 24 games for the Coulee Region Chill last season and posting 2 goals and 7 assists.  He then finished the season in the NA3HL with the Granite City Lumberjacks where he posted 6 goals and 8 assists in just 12 games.  While a member of the Lumberjacks Zwiener signed a tender with the Tauros.  Prior to starting his junior career Zwiener posted 54 goals and 73 assists in 96 games for Sartell-St. Stephen High School in Minnesota.

From the Coaches’ Office: Spencer had 20+ games in our league last season and I think that reflects in his confidence thus far in training camp.  He’s a very good skater, decent size, and has very good offensive instincts.  He was very noticeable in our scrimmage yesterday and I’m excited to see what this season brings for him. – Marty Murray
