We’ve spent a lot of time on out-of-towners, but alas, there are more Massachusetts natives on the Boston College hockey roster. One of the returning sophomores comes from Frank Spazianiland in Hingham, and that would be Cam Spiro, a 20-year old forward.
Spiro went from Hingham down to near the Buzzards Bay southern shore of Massachusetts, playing for Tabor Academy in Marion. Prior to that, he did put on the sweater of Hingham High School, but it was during his last two seasons at Tabor that he truly caught the eye of Boston College’s hockey staff. In those two years, the last of which saw him serving as team captain, Spiro tallied 102 points, including 55 goals.
He came to Boston College for the championship season of 2011-12, but played in only one game. It took him some time to get acclimated to the fact that he was an unused bench player, but that will probably not be the case for very long.
Given that Spiro has talent and has a track record of scoring bunches of goals prior to his arrival at BC, he will eventually get playing time. That could come as soon as this year, where he would not have to do very much to get more ice time than he got last year. Getting into a second game would be a good start, but chances are he’ll get into more, even if only briefly. Rest assured, he will not have as many penalties as games played forever.
