The plan is for Ryan Spooner to start the season as a center.
Spooner recently voiced his preference to do just that. Spooner's role with the team came into question after the Bruins added David Backes, Riley Nash, and Dominic on top of returning centers Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. We'll have to wait to see how that all works out. Sep 22 - 4:14 PM

Ryan Spooner is hoping that the Boston Bruins' offseason moves don't force him to shift from center to the wing.

"I’ve thought about it, and I’d really prefer to play in the middle of the ice," said Spooner. "It’s just where I guess I’ve always played. But if they want to play me on the wing and they think that’s where I’m best, then that’s where I’m going to play. I’d prefer if they told me [a definitive answer] like a week-and-a-half before the season starts so I can work on some stuff. It’s definitely a change for sure, so I guess we’ll see." If the Bruins had sat on their hands this summer, Spooner would likely be the team's third-line center behind Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci. However, the additions of David Backes, Riley Nash, and Dominic Moore have made Boston very deep up the middle and obviously some of them will have to serve as wingers instead.

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.

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.
Jan 25 - 9:26 AM

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.
