Ryan Spooner is battling for Boston's third-line center spot.

Boston has made Ryan Spooner's contract signing official.

It is indeed a one-year deal worth $2.825 million, which was initially reported by Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman this morning. "We are pleased with the process and are happy to have Ryan's contract resolved. His agent, Murray Kuntz, and Ryan were both very professional, and our group was well prepared as they had worked very diligently prior to arriving at a settlement point," said GM Don Sweeney. "We know Ryan has the offensive skills to be an impactful player, especially while on the power play. We expect Ryan to continue to take the necessary steps with his development to be an even more complete, two-way player." Spooner took a step back last season with 39 points in 78 games after he had 49 points over 80 matches in 2015-16. He will have to be better this year because the Bruins have other players in the pipeline looking to move up and take his place.

Ryan Spooner and the Bruins have reportedly avoided going to arbitration and have settled on a new deal.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports that the Bruins have agreed to a one-year, $2.825 million contract. That would put both sides in the middle of what they were seeking from arbitration. Spooner had 11 goals and 39 points in 78 games last season.

Ryan Spooner and the Bruins appear to be heading for salary arbitration.

The two sides may not be able to bridge the gap before his hearing takes place on Wednesday. Spooner has asked for $3.85 million and Boston put in a request for a one-year, $2 million award. However, it's still possible that a new deal could be worked out before or after the arbitrator makes a ruling.
Jul 25 - 10:15 AM

Ryan Spooner is expected to get between $2.7 million and $3.5 million for the 2017-18 campaign.

Spooner is coming off a two-year, $1.9 million contract, so that will represent a substantial raise for him. He had 11 goals and 39 points in 78 contests in 2016-17, but he also spent time as a healthy scratch during the playoffs. He's set to go for arbitration on July 26, so it will be interesting to see if the two sides can work out a compromise before the hearing.
Jul 17 - 4:11 AM

Ryan Spooner's arbitration date is set for July 26.

In other words the Bruins and Spooner have a little over two weeks left to come to terms if they want to avoid a hearing. Spooner is likely to get a significant raise from his previous two-year, $1.9 million contract, but his future with the Bruins is in question given that he spent some time as a healthy scratch during the playoffs.
Jul 10 - 4:24 AM

Ryan Spooner has filed for arbitration.

Spooner scored 11 goals and 39 points in 78 games, but he ended up spending time in the press box during the playoffs. He's coming off a two-year, $1.9 million contract.
Jul 5 - 6:12 PM

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.
May 3 - 10:04 AM

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.
