For some time now, the new staff of the Canadiens has been sending several scouts to the games of the Los Angeles Kings as well as their AHL team, the Ontario Reign.

From what we can understand, the Habs would be very interested in the young defender Jordan Spence.

Spence, a former QMJHL player, is currently having a great AHL season with the Ontario Reign. In 46 games with the Kings farm team, he had 4 goals and 38 assists for a total of 42 points in addition to earning 28 penalty minutes and maintaining a +18 differential. His excellent play recently earned him a recall with the Kings, with whom he has played the last three games.

Watch his first NHL point below as he assisted on Rasmus Kupari's goal in the Kings' 3-2 win over the Panthers last Sunday.

The 21-year-old right-handed defenseman was a 4th round pick (95th overall) in the 2019 draft. He played for the Moncton Wildcats and the Val d'Or Foreurs during his time on the QMJHL, amassing 141 points in 160 games during that time.

It wouldn't be surprising if Los Angeles had Ben Chiarot in its sights. As Phylippe Bernard reminds us in his tweet, the California organization could be a buyer next Monday when many players are injured, especially in the defensive position. To date, Drew Doughty, Matt Roy, Mikey Anderson, Alexander Edler and Sean Walker are all missing from the Kings blue line.

The team is battling for the top spot in its division, they are currently five points behind the Flames. They will certainly want to maintain their place and thus equip themselves for the next playoffs!
