Spooner (concussion) recorded an assist in 14:40 worth of ice time in his return to action in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flames. Spooner, who had missed the B's previous three contests, logged 2:33 worth of power-play ice time while lifting his season stat line to 11 goals and 35 points over 66 games. Fourteen of Spooner's points have come with the man advantage, and as long as he continues to see his share of power-play action, he'll maintain a degree of fantasy utility down the stretch.
Spooner (concussion) will rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Flames. The 25-year-old forward had missed three straight contests after suffering a concussion against the Senators, but he can again be utilized normally in both season-long and daily formats. While Spooner hasn't busted out following a promising 2015-16 campaign, he was in the midst of an uptick prior to the injury, notching 12 points in a span of 16 games.
Spooner (concussion) centered the Bruins' third line at the team's morning skate in advance of Wednesday night's road game against the Flames. Barring any setbacks, it looks like Spooner will be cleared to man the middle of the B's third line Wednesday, flanked by Frank Vatrano and Jimmy Hayes. Spooner, who has logged 11 goals and 34 points in 65 games, certainly has the skills to produce at a higher rate, though such a potential outcome is largely tied to his power-play production, as 14 of those points have come on the man advantage.
Though Spooner (concussion) won't play Monday against the Canucks, coach Bruce Cassidy hasn't yet ruled the forward out for Wednesday's game against the Flames, the Boston Herald reports. Spooner skated with the B's on Sunday, which is a step in the right direction and upon his return, look for him to reclaim his spot as the team's third-line center. Whether that happens as soon as Wednesday remains to be seen, but barring any setbacks it appears as though Spooner's concussion shouldn't keep him out too much longer.
Spooner (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's road game in Vancouver. Spooner will miss his third straight game after sustaining the injury on March 6 against the Senators. Concussions are notoriously difficult to forecast return timetables for, but head coach Bruce Cassidy reported that Spooner is progressing well through the concussion protocol. That said, it doesn't seem likely that he'll return without a couple days of skating and practice under his belt, so it seems unlikely that Spooner will come back for the team's games in Alberta on Wednesday or Thursday, either.
