The Boston Bruins are reportedly listening to offers for Ryan Spooner.
Spooner is eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer and the Bruins might not re-sign him even if they don't trade him. Spooner, 25, took a step back in terms of offensive production in 2016-17 with 11 goals and 39 points in 78 contests. In the playoffs he ended up being listed as a healthy scratch in Games 5 and 6, highlighting just how far he had fallen in the team's depth charts. Some of the teams that might be interested in his services include New Jersey, Vancouver, and Las Vegas. May 4 - 6:20 PM

If Ryan Spooner is back with the Bruins next season then team president Cam Neely expects him to be better.

"Whether it's that player being more consistent or an upgrade of a player being more consistent, yeah," Neely said. "You see the depth of a successful team, you need that depth. Ryan's done a great job on the power play, but there's more to the game than just being a specialty player. I think if we get some help in that regard, it will be beneficial for the team." Spooner will be a restricted free agent this summer and could still return to Boston.

Ryan Spooner might have played in his last game with the Boston Bruins.

Spooner was scratched for Game 5 and then held out of Game 6 as well despite the fact that the Bruins were missing David Krejci (knee). Spooner will be a restricted free agent this summer, so the Bruins are in a position to re-sign him if that's what they want, but he might have fallen out of favor.

Ryan Spooner will not play in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.

Spooner was scratched for Game 5, but there was a chance he would draw back into the lineup given that David Krejci isn't available. Boston decided to go with Matt Beleskey instead though. Spooner isn't 100% healthy, but he's good enough that he could play if called upon.

Ryan Spooner will be scratched in Game 5 on Friday.

Ryan Spooner is expected to center Boston's second line in Game 2 against Ottawa.

Spooner is being given more responsibility because of the injury to David Krejci. David Backes and Drew Stafford are expected to be his wingers. "I think as a line, if we just get some pucks to the net, we’ll be fine. If we try to get cute, it’s not going to work for us," said Spooner. With Game 1 being so tight, the Bruins will need their second line to produce offense at some point.
