Playing career[edit | edit source]

Born in Waterloo, Ontario to a German mother and Canadian father, Nittel (at the time) played junior hockey for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League. His play attracted the attention of the New Jersey Devils of the NHL, who drafted him in the third round, 85th overall in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. In his final junior season of 2002-03, he was traded to the Oshawa Generals of the OHL.

After spending most of three pro seasons with the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League, he began playing in Europe and adopted his father's name "Spylo." Since 2006, he has played for several teams in the Nationalliga A in Switzerland, Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany, and the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia.

As a member of the Nürnberg Ice Tigers, he was named the Hockey News player of the month in September, 2007. He was also selected to the 2008 DEL All-Star Game.

In April he signed a one-year contract with EHC Biel.
