After five years in the minors with numerous teams in the Canadiens organization, Irv Spencer was claimed by the Rangers in the 1959 Intra-League Draft and finally broke into the NHL. Back in the days of the original six teams, "You had to wait until somebody died to get a position," Spencer once quipped.

He made his NHL debut during the 1959-60 season and played 32 games for the Rangers, though he split his time with two other teams in the minors. He stayed with in big league for two straight seasons and saw his first Stanley Cup action in the 1962 playoffs. He was then claimed by the Boston Bruins in the Intra-League Draft of 1962 but spent only one season in Beantown before being claimed yet again in the Intra-League Draft, this time by the Red Wings.

In Spencer's first season as a Wing, the team went to the 1964 Stanley Cup finals against the Leafs. Toronto went on to win the game and the Cup. Over the next four years Spencer spent limited time with the Wings and more in the minors, he was even named to the CHL first all-star team for 1968.

Spencer's last stint in the NHL came in the 1967-68 season and spent the next six years with several different teams in the CHL, WHL, and WHA before retiring from the game in 1974.
