Observations:

 

March 2016 – It's been a full year since Spooner last played in the minors, and he likely ain't going back. He has found his way (nay, earned his way) to a regular third-line role in Boston. He's still not a big scorer, but with 46 points in 70 games he's certainly showing that he belongs. Look for Spooner's scoring to increase as his role with the Bruins expands. – Michael Boeckler

 

October 2014 – Ryan Spooner has made the Bruins' opening day roster. He will likely take a spot on the fourth line, alongside Daniel Paille and Matt Fraser. It's an excellent opportunity for Spooner to show he is NHL-ready. Don't expect many points from Spooner this year, unless injuries give him the opportunity for more ice time. – Michael Boeckler

 

December 2013 – Spooner has been recalled by the Bruins as a result of an injury to Chris Kelly. Because Kelly will miss at least 10 games, Spooner has the opportunity to stick for awhile. Although he'll mostly serve in a depth role, his 19 points in 19 AHL games so far this year indicate that he could make do with little ice time. Not worth owning in one-year leagues, but this will be a great glimpse into how soon he'll contribute to keeper leagues. – Dobber

 

September 2013 – Ryan Spooner is making it awfully hard for the Bruins to send him back to Providence with an exceptionally strong performance at the 2013-14 Bruins’ training camp.  His biggest obstacle to starting the year in Boston may be organizational depth, as he will likely have to beat out either Chris Kelly or Gregory Campbell.  The 21-year-old had a tremendous first year in Providence (57 points in 59 games) and is getting very close to earning a spot in the NHL.  Michael Boeckler

 

June 2013 – The diminutive center will have to be patient before cracking Boston’s roster. Baring a trade at the center position, the top two lines for Boston are set for many years with Krejci and Bergeron down the middle, especially with Tyler Seguin, a natural center, being accommodated by playing the wing. Despite that fact, the versatile Spooner can find a niche short-term on the second line as a winger or third line as a center because his overall two-w
