Spooner finished with four shots and a minus-1 rating over 17:30 of ice time (3:26 on the power play) in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders. While he was held off the board here, the pending restricted free agent has built up his value with 16 points in 19 games with the Rangers after coming over from Boston in the Rick Nash deal. Spooner was no slouch with the Bruins either, posting 25 points in 39 appearances prior to the move for a grand total of 13 goals and 28 assists this season.
Spooner registered a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-3 road loss to the Lightning. Spooner's been nothing short of awesome since the Rangers pried him away from the Bruins on Feb. 25, tallying two goals and eight helpers over six games. Better yet, it looks like he'll be able to hold down a role on the No. 2 power-play unit. Keep close tabs on Spooner if you need help at the center spot in fantasy.
Spooner recorded a goal, an assist, five shots and a plus-2 rating during Friday's 3-1 win over Calgary. Spooner has now recorded multi-point showings in each of his first three games with the Rangers to improve to 10 goals and 22 assists through 42 games for the campaign. He should remain a key cog for the Rangers, and there's no questioning the 26-year-old winger's offensive upside. Spooner's scoring pace is going to slow, but there's potential for him to continue providing serviceable numbers in the majority of settings through the end of the season.
Spooner continued his strong play since being traded by adding three assists Wednesday in a 6-5 overtime win over Vancouver. Spooner isn't going to keep up his pace of five assists in two games, but he might be more valuable than fantasy owners originally thought when he came over in the Rick Nash trade. He will find opportunities in New York even after his pace drops off, and that bodes well for his long-term value.
Spooner, who was just traded to the Rangers, picked up two assists with his new team in a 3-2 loss to the Red Wings on Sunday. He saw 16:31 of ice time, including 0:54 on the power play. Spooner was a piece of the Rick Nash trade and got thrown right into the mix by the Bruins. During his time with Boston he picked up nine goals and 16 assists through 39 games. It remains to be seen what his role will be with the Rangers, but this is certainly a debut to remember.
