Playing career[edit | edit source]
In 2002, Carbery attended the University of Alaska Anchorage, where he netted 3 points in goals and assists over 26 games. Carbery attended St. Norbert College from 2003 to 2006, finishing out his NCAA career with 103 points in goals and assists in the regular season.
In 2007, Carbery moved to the ECHL, where he split the season between the Bakersfield Condors (18 games, 3 goals, 3 assists), the Stockton Thunder (20 games, 0 goals, 2 assists), and the Fresno Falcons (20 games, 2 goals, 2 assists). Carbery also saw playoff action with the Falcons in 2008, playing 1 game in the National Conference quarterfinals.
Carbery remained with the Falcons for the beginning of the 2008–09 season, pulling down 13 points in combined goals and assists over 29 games in the regular season. Following suspension of Falcons operations, Carbery joined the South Carolina Stingrays' roster, scoring 29 points (12 goals, 7 assists) over 39 games. Playoff action with the Stingrays culminated in 5 goals, 8 assists, and a Kelly Cup championship for Carbery.

In the 2009–10 season on January 7, 2010, Spencer was selected to represent the Stingrays as an alternate captain. To positive effect he quickly responded in achieving a Gordie Howe hat trick on January 16, 2010, against the Kalamazoo Wings. On January 25, 2010, his goal against the Reading Royals aided the Stingrays in tying the ECHL record for the most players with a point in one game.
