Bruins GM Don Sweeney feels Carl Soderberg's departure has created an opportunity for Ryan Spooner.

That meshes with Bruins coach Claude Julien's statements a couple weeks ago, reinforcing the idea that the third line center job is Spooner's to lose. Spooner had eight goals and 18 points in 29 games with Boston in 2014-15. He also had 26 points in 34 AHL contests.

Ryan Spooner is considered the leading candidate to be Boston's third-line center next season.

"Everybody's got to win a job in training camp, but there's no doubt Ryan showed a lot last year," coach Claude Julien said. "I thought he took a real big step forward the second time he came up. As much as he was great on the power play, he seemed to be a little bit more engaged, which is an area that he wasn't doing as well before, so you hope he can take that next step to be even more engaged." Julien wants to see Spooner improve defensively, but he should be able to contribute offensively.

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.

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.

Boston has sent down Ryan Spooner to Providence.

He will help the Boston's AHL affiliate in the postseason. Spooner made an impact with Bruins down the stretch, as the team looked to qualify for the NHL playoffs. In 29 games with the big club, he posted eight goals and 10 assists. He'll be back in the NHL next campaign.

Ryan Spooner skated with Chris Kelly and Brett Connolly during Monday's practice.

David Krejci was back with Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak. Coach Claude Julien said the lines weren't finalized yet, so Spooner could still play with Lucic and Pastrnak on Wednesday night against Washington. That trio has been excellent for the Bruins down the stretch.

Ryan Spooner registered a pair of assists in Boston's 3-2 win against Florida on Tuesday night.

Ryan Spooner scored a goal in Boston's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim on Thursday night.

He stayed at center for most of the game between Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak even though David Krejci returned to the lineup from a knee injury. Krejci played on the wing in the match with Patrice Bergeron. Spooner's goal came on the power play from Krejci and Bergeron.

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 has a knack for scoring in his hometown rink, as he potted two goals for the second time this month at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa during the Bruins' 6-4 loss.

Ryan Spooner scored two goals for the Bruins on Tuesday as part of a 3-1 win over the Senators.

The diminutive center has now recorded eight points in as many games since he was recalled from Providence on February 21st and he's currently riding a six-game point streak. Loui Eriksson also found the back of the net for the Bruins in the win while talented blueliner Dougie Hamilton recorded two assists.
Mar 10 - 11:09 PM

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

He earned an assist on a power-play goal by Loui Eriksson to give him four helpers and one goal over that span. The line of Spooner, Milan Lucic and David Pastrnak has struggled at times defensively, but it has done a decent job in the offensive end.
Mar 9 - 10:18 AM

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.
