Spooner (undisclosed) pumped five shots on goal and added three hits over 13:59 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Kings. Spooner missed 11 games with the injury. He remains at eight points in 48 games this season, which would stand as the lowest total in a full season in his career.
Spooner will return to the Canucks lineup ahead of Thursday's game versus Los Angeles, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. Spooner hasn't appeared in the Canucks' past 11 outings. At first, he was out with an injury (undisclosed), then became a healthy scratch. He enters the lineup in place of Sven Baertschi. Spooner has played six contests for Vancouver, posting three assists in the process.
Spooner (undisclosed) is a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against Columbus, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Spooner has not played since March 3 and will be absent again Sunday, though it appears, considering the "scratch" designation, whatever injury was keeping him from playing is now behind him. He'll have to work his way back into the lineup, with his next chance to do coming Tuesday against the Ducks.
Spooner disclosed to Colin Stephenson of Newsday on Thursday that he's aiming to return to the lineup by the end of next week. Spooner's timetable was rather open-ended, but he has put a target date on the map. After weak showings with both the Rangers (two points in 16 games) and Oilers (three points in 25 games), Spooner may have finally found a home with the Canucks. Through six games with his new club, Spooner has racked up three assists. He remains under contract for the remainder of the year and next season and should get ample opportunity to prove his worth on a Vancouver squad that has fallen out of the playoff picture.
Spooner (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Oilers. Spooner's absence will continue to test Vancouver's depth up front, but it will almost certainly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only totaled eight points in 47 games this campaign. The Canucks have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for the veteran forward's return to game action, but another update on his status will undoubtedly surface once he's given the green light to rejoin the lineup.
