      Bruins' Ryan Spooner: Scores game-tying goal Friday

      Spooner scored a goal in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. Spooner's power-play tally at the 16:14 mark of the third period tied the game at 3-3, with David Krejci notching the game-winner just 2:03 later. Overall, Spooner -- who previously had gone four games without notching a point -- has recorded five goals and 12 points in 22 games for the B's. On Friday, Spooner worked on a line with Joonas Kemppainen and Brett Connolly, a trio that could stick for the time-being, given that Connolly also tallied in the contest.

      Bruins' Ryan Spooner: Nets power-play goal Thursday

      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.

      Bruins' Ryan Spooner: Off to slow start

      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.

    • Bruins' Spooner Likely To Center Third Line

      News: 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.
      Analysis: The report notes that Ryan Spooner has added five pounds of muscle to his 5-foot-11 frame, so the 23-year-old pivot now checks in at 187 pounds. Any added strength clearly helps his chances of withstanding the rigors of a full NHL season and if all goes as expected, Spooner will be with the big club from the get-go on 2015-16. In 29 games for the Bruins last season, Spooner finished with eight goals and 18 points, while displaying some nice playmaking upside. Spooner's path to fantasy relevance is tied to his level of power play activity, but it's not hard to imagine him being in the team's rotation in man-advantage situations, thus making him worthy of consideration in deeper formats.
    • Bruins Sign Spooner

      News: Ryan Spooner signed a two-year contract extension with the Bruins on Wednesday worth $1.9 million, WEEI.com reports.
      Analysis: Ryan Spooner, who notched 18 points in 29 games for the Bruins this past season, is now the favorite to replace Carl Soderberg (now with the Avs) as the team's third-line center. It's an assignment that the 23-year-old looks up to the task for, following his breakout effort last season. As long as he can continue to hold up to the physical rigors of the NHL, Spooner's speed and playmaking upside will be valuable assets to the Bruins' forward corps.
    • Bruins Give Qualifying Offer To Spooner

      News: The Bruins have extended a qualifying offer to Ryan Spooner, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
      Analysis: The nimble centerman is thus almost certain to return to Boston for 2015-16, and as things stand now, it looks like he's got the inside track on the third-line center job, with some power-play time to boot -- assuming the Bruins don't bring some depth in during free agency. If he does find his way into a regular role, Ryan Spooner's playmaking ability will make him useful in deeper fantasy formats.
    • Bruins' Spooner Assigned To AHL

      News: Ryan Spooner was assigned to AHL Providence on Monday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
      Analysis: Ryan Spooner and a couple other players will head over to Providence to get the last few reps of the 2014-15 season now that the Bruins have missed the playoffs. The 23-year-old appeared in 29 games for Boston this season and produced 18 points. He'll likely be locked into a full-time role with the parent club in 2015-16.
    • Bruins' Spooner Notches Two Points Tuesday

      News: A goal initially credited to David Pastrnak in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Florida, has been awarded to Ryan Spooner, with Milan Lucic and Pastrnak drawing assists on the tally.
      Analysis: Ryan Spooner thus finishes the game with credit for his eighth goal of the season to go along with a helper, which gives him five points over his last four games. Over that span, he has three goals and it's clear that working on a line with Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak agrees with Spooner, who has displayed a higher level of confidence and shooting ability of late, to go along with the speed and deft puck-handling he had previously displayed at times for the B's. With Spooner's trio clicking these days, look for the Bruins to keep the line intact for the time being, though the return of Brett Connolly does figure to lead to coach Claude Julien doing some line-juggling in the coming days.
    • Spooner Stays Hot For Bruins

      News: Ryan Spooner picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Florida, pushing his point streak to four games.
      Analysis: In fact, over his last seven contests, Ryan Spooner has four goals and four assists, marking some red-hot late-season production that's provided a crucial boost to the Bruins' scoring depth as they've been fighting to gain and hold a playoff spot.
    • Bruins' Spooner Opens Sunday's Scoring

      News: Ryan Spooner opened the scoring in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
      Analysis: Ryan Spooner, who now has seven goals and 15 points in 23 games for the big club this season, has recorded six points over his last six contests. Though David Krejci has been back in the B's lineup since Thursday, Spooner's solid production of late has kept him in the team's forward mix, centering Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak, who tallied Sunday's game-winner.
