After Providence was eliminated from the AHL playoffs last week, Ryan Spooner said he's looking forward to next season.
"I’ll stick around here for a bit and sort out some stuff," said Spooner. "Then I’ll go back home. I’m pretty exciting for the season coming up. I’m not happy with how it ended here, but when I played [in Boston] I thought I did well. I’m exciting to go home and work on some stuff, and just come into camp showing I’m there and I’m ready to play the same way I did [in the last two months]." The 23-year-old had eight goals and 18 points in 29 NHL games this season. May 3 - 9:54 AM

Ryan Spooner was impressive down the stretch for Boston, but he knows he still has improvements to make.

The first item on that list is his 45.4 percent success rate on faceoffs. "I had some ups and downs on that. I had some games where I've been good, some games where I was bad," Spooner said. "And then I'd say probably, I guess, defensively (I have to improve). It's going to take some time, too. I've only played like (56 NHL games) so I'm going to try to work on that too." Spooner is a restricted free agent this summer and he should fit into the team's plans next season.

Ryan Spooner won't be going anywhere when, or if, David Krejci returns, according to Coach Julien.

"I think everybody here knows that Ryan Spooner is playing well. I’m going to be honest with you: he’s not coming out of our lineup playing the way that he is," said Julien. "That’s just doing the right thing and he deserves it right now. We’ll just have to figure out what we’re going to do from there [when Krejci does return]." The 23 year old Spooner has scored four goals and nine points in his last 10 games, including a six-game point streak. He has 11 points in 18 games this season for the Bruins, and 22 points in 45 games overall since 2013.

Ryan Spooner extended his point streak to five games on Sunday.

Ryan Spooner's first NHL goal was the overtime winner in the Bruins' Friday night 3-2 win over New Jersey.

Spooner, who has been shuffled between the AHL and NHL the past few seasons, scored for the first time in 35 NHL games. He was pretty stoked about it too. "I was honestly shocked," said Spooner with a grin. "I was like 'Oh wow, it actually went in.' It feels great." Spooner centered the Bruins' top line featuring David Pastrnak and Milan Lucic. That unit was buzzing around the New Jersey net all game and took a very impressive 15 shots on goal. As long as he continues to play at a high level, Spooner will likely get the chance to sub in for the injured David Krejci going forward. He makes a nice depth forward acquistion.
