Ryan Spooner is projected to be back on the third line Tuesday night.

Ryan Spooner was shifted around again in Monday's 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

He played right wing on Saturday against Columbus alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. On Monday, he moved to the left side and lined up with David Krejci and Loui Eriksson. Coach Claude Julien said that Spooner will probably continue to play center, but he knows he can move him around to help the Bruins generate offense.

Ryan Spooner skated alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand on Saturday.

He picked up an assist on a goal by Marchand in Boston's 3-2 shootout win over Columbus. The Bruins may allow that experiment to continue even though Spooner's natural position is at center. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if he moved up to that position when the situation calls for it and remains as the team's third-line pivot.

Ryan Spooner has really stepped up during David Krejci's absence.

Spooner has taken on the roll as the Bruins' second-line center while Krejci recovers from an undisclosed injury. In the eight games Krejci has been sidelined, Spooner has registered an impressive 11 points. Boston coach Claude Julien is certainly impressed. "He’s been good. He’s been a real good asset for us, a real good replacement for David Krejci since he’s been down, said Julien. "He’s been really skating well, making things happen, back-checking. "I’m really happy with the way he’s taken on that responsibility; coming in and giving us a second line that’s been pretty good offensively." High praise indeed from the bench boss. Needless to say, if Spooner is available we advise you add him to your roster if you are in a deep fantasy pool.

He won 8 of 11 draws, including all five in the defensive zone, and he accounted for six shots on goal in Boston's 2-1 overtime loss. Spooner has meshed well with Matt Beleskey since David Krejci was injured and Loui Eriksson rejoined the unit on Saturday. Spooner has one goal and five assists in his last five games and is worth picking up if he's available.

Jan 8 - 10:07 PM

Ryan Spooner filled in for David Krejci on Sunday and he'll continue to play on the second line of the Bruins while Krejci is sidelined.

Krejci is listed as week-to-week with an upper-body injury, so Spooner will be granted a great opportunity. "I think, for me, I just need to be confident in myself, just use my skill and my speed, at the same time, just make sure that I'm good in my own end," he said. "I think if I focus on that first, I think the offense will come." Spooner has eight goals and 22 points in 35 games.

Ryan Spooner registered four assists in the Bruins' 6-2 drubbing of the Penguins Friday night.

Spooner's offensive outburst was impressive enough, however, the young forward did something else in the contest that may have been even more impactful. He stuck up for a Dennis Seidenberg after he run over by Patric Hornqvist. Spooner dropped his gloves and was prepared to avenge the hard hit. "Everyone recognized who it was that dropped the gloves", said coach Calude Julien. "Whether it was warranted or not, he did a great thing and he showed his teammates that he’s going to be there for them". Sounds like Spooner is winning over his teammates and the Bruins' coaching staff with his overall play.

Ryan Spooner is centering a line between Landon Ferraro and Jimmy Hayes.

He has played a variety of different linemates this season, but this current combination has plenty of speed on it, which fits Spooner's style nicely. "It doesn't really matter to me who's on my right or my left, I just try to use my speed as much as I can," he said. "It's a thing that I'm good at, and I find that when I have a hard time, it's when I'm not doing that." Spooner ended a six-game goalless skid this past Friday. He has five goals and 12 points in 22 games this year.

Ryan Spooner was benched in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to San Jose.

"I wasn't playing that well," Spooner admitted. "I mean, in the first period, I thought I was OK. The second period, I didn't play well at all. I don't disagree with it at all." He didn't get five-on-five playing time in the third after a turnover and a penalty, but he did earn an assist on a power-play goal by Patrice Bergeron. Joonas Kemppainen played on the third line in Spooner's place.
