Ryan Spooner has been playing some of his best hockey of late.

Spooner scored two goals in Thursday's win over Buffalo and head coach Claude Julien has been pleased with his effort. "Ryan Spooner, give him credit," said Claude Julien. "He’s been good lately. There have been times when we’ve been hard on him and I think rightfully so, but when he plays well, he deserves the accolades and Ryan Spooner’s been a good player for us lately. You hope he continues to grow." The 24-year-old is currently riding a four-game point streak. He has seven goals and 11 assists in 37 games this season.

Spooner scored the game's first goal at the 9:13 mark of the first period and he registered the primary assist on Brad Marchand's power play goal in the second. He has five goals and 10 assists in 35 games. Unfortunately for the Bruins, they were unable to hold onto a 2-0 lead and they let the game slip away in OT.

Ryan Spooner netted the game-winning goal Monday in overtime for a 2-1 overtime victory over Montreal.

The Boston Bruins have reportedly engaged in trade discussions involving Ryan Spooner with multiple teams.

Trading Spooner would make some sense as it seems that Boston's depth, particularly at the center position, has hurt his value to the Bruins. It also recently seemed that he was in coach Claude Julien's doghouse and Spooner has spent some time on the fourth line. That being said he had 49 points last season and at the age of 24 still has some untapped upside. A change of scenery might be in all parties' best interest. The Carolina Hurricanes, San Jose Sharks, and New York Islanders have shown interest in Spooner, according to CSN New England's source.

Ryan Spooner will continue to play on the Bruins' fourth line Sunday against the Lightning.

In Saturday's scrimmage he skated alongside center Dominic Moore and winger Jimmy Hayes. When asked when Spooner could reclaim a spot on one of the Bruins' top two lines, Boston coach Claude Julien had this to say: "You’re going to have to ask him. Obviously, you know, I’m not satisfied with his game right now, so he can answer for himself." Yikes. Sounds like Spooner is seriously in Julien's doghouse at the moment. We would bench him for the time being.

Ryan Spooner ended up centering the fourth line on Saturday.

He played between Sean Kuraly and Jimmy Hayes, while Matt Beleskey took his left-wing spot in the second line alongside David Krejci and David Backes.

Ryan Spooner has been much more productive lately.

He has one goal and two assists over a three-game point streak and five points over his last seven contests. Spooner had one goal and one assist in his first eight appearances this campaign.

Ryan Spooner scored his second goal of the season in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over Tampa Bay.

He registered Boston's lone power-play marker on four chances in the contest. The goal ended his four-game pointless skid. Spooner has three points in nine games this season.

The Boston Bruins are willing to potentially swap Ryan Spooner for a young studly defender to help out their aging blue line.

Which makes sense. While not blessed in the same way that say Toronto or Arizona are with young phenoms at the forward position, Boston could certain stand to begin to re-tool their defense corps. Spooner represents one of their most promising and ready-to-play young talents and many a Bruins would agree that a certain withholding right-handed defender in Winnipeg would look just dandy next to Torey Krug.

Ryan Spooner is projected to play between Matt Beleskey and Jimmy Hayes on Tuesday night.

"When the third line has zero, you need to create some offense somehow," said coach Claude Julien. "This is not about Ryan Spooner not doing the job on the wing [with David Krejci and David Backes Saturday]. I thought he had a decent game and he did score. But that [third] line has been flat and we need a little bit more throughout our lineup." Riley Nash had been serving as the center for Beleskey and Hayes.

Ryan Spooner responded with a better game Saturday night after being scratched for the Bruins' game on Thursday.

Boston coach Claude Julien has not been happy with Spooner's play this season and sat him down Thursday night against the Devils. Although according to Julien Spooner was better, it is apparent the 24-year-old has some work to do. Despite scoring his first goal of the season, Spooner was on the ice for the Canadiens final two goals in the Bruins' 4-2 loss. Of his own performance, Spooner said the following: "I had four or five (chances) that I could have scored on. I’ve just got to bear down on those. It’s good that I’m getting those looks, but I have to bear down on them. I think it [being scratched]was kind of a message that I just haven’t been the player I can be. I have to use it as some motivation, and just go out there and play."

Ryan Spooner scored a power play goal at the 8:09 minute mark in the Boston Bruins 4-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens Saturday night.

This was Spooner’s first goal and only his second points of the season. He had an assist in the October 13th matchup with the Blue Jackets. Two points in his first four games puts him on target to rise to his 2015-16 mark of 13 goals, 36 assists for a total of 49 points. Saturday night, Spooner had assists from David Backes and David Krejci.

Ryan Spooner will indeed play Saturday against Montreal.

Spooner has a point in three games, and 50 points over his last 83 games, so we'd get him in your lineup if your league is deep enough to sustain him.
