Jared Spurgeon (born November 29, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He currently plays for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League (NHL). Spurgeon was selected 156th overall by the New York Islanders in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

The New York Islanders failed to sign Spurgeon to a professional contract. After playing five seasons with the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL, and winning a Memorial Cup, the unsigned defenceman was invited to attend the Minnesota Wild's 2010–11 training camp, and on September 23, 2010, he was rewarded when Minnesota signed him to a three-year entry-level contract, and assigned Spurgeon to play for their AHL affiliate, the Houston Aeros.

Spurgeon played 21 games in the AHL before being recalled to the NHL.[1] to make his NHL debut on his 21st birthday.[2] Wearing #46 for the Minnesota Wild, the defenceman played 14:42 minutes, and registered one shot on goal, in a 3–0 shutout loss against the Calgary Flames.[3] Spurgeon scored his first NHL goal on February 22nd against Nikolai Khabibulin of the Edmonton Oilers.[4]

Personal[edit]

He is married to Danielle Spurgeon and they have two children - Zachary, and Colbie.
