Spong and family are all Dutch citizens with no American or Canadian roots. This is why he is playing AA hockey in Quebec. I believe that Quebec has certain residency requirements to play AAA. I was told he was going to play in Ontario this season but his Dutch status and residency problems got in the way. Establishing citizenship in the US and Canada is not easy these days. It can take years and requires very specific length of time living in a country, work status and other criteria. I would not expect him at the USNTDP Camp and he is not eligible for the CHL Draft in Quebec since he is European.
