Spooner netted a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche. Spooner took advantage of an Avalanche turnover and sent the puck into a wide-open net with Reto Berra sprawled on the ice. It was Spooner's fourth goal of the season and the young forward has scored in his past two games. At this rate, he should have no problem eclipsing his career igh of 18 points from last season.
Spooner saw 15:55 worth of ice time in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning. Spooner, who saw 2:52 worth of power play duty Monday, has yet to score a point in three games, while a boarding major that resulted in a game misconduct in Saturday's game against Montreal gives him 15 PIM to date. For a little perspective, Spooner had just two penalty minutes in 29 games for the B's last season. As long as the 23-year-old continues to see power play time, he has the skills to produce for fantasy owners, but so far the Bruins' third and fourth lines have yet to generate much offense and for now Spooner centers the team's No. 3 trio.
With Carl Soderberg no longer in the mix, Ryan Spooner is a prime candidate to handle the Bruins' No. 3 center slot this coming season, csnne.com reports.
