Spooner Assigned to Providence

Boston, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, November 4, that the team has assigned forward Ryan Spooner to Providence (American Hockey League). 

Spooner skated two games with Boston this season, notching two assists, including his first NHL point on October 31 against the Anaheim Ducks at TD Garden.

Prior to joining Boston, Spooner appeared in eight games with the Providence Bruins, where the 21-year-old notched two goals and five assists for seven points.

The 5’11’’, 181-pound native of Kanata, Ontario was drafted by the Boston Bruins on the third round (45th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Bruins Recall Ryan Spooner

Boston, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, October 31, that the team has recalled Ryan Spooner from the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League). Spooner will join the team Thursday and be eligible to play in Thursday night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks (7:00 p.m. at TD Garden).

Spooner's Opportunity

WINNIPEG, MB - Two days ago, B’s prospect Ryan Spooner quietly helped the Providence Bruins to a St. Patrick’s Day victory and three-game weekend sweep with two goals and two assists.

By the time Monday had rolled around, the 21-year-old center was on his way West to join the big club in Winnipeg, and possibly get the call to help them complete a series sweep of the Jets.

I think the most important thing is you just have to get comfortable…once you get comfortable with it all, then it gets a lot easier.

Pregame in Winnipeg: Krejci “Doing Better,” Spooner Gets Call

WINNIPEG, MB
- The Bruins hit the ice today around 11:30 local time at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg for pregame skate prior to tonight’s match-up against the Jets.

Though, they had to wait a few extra minutes before the Zamboni finished clearing, and some B’s took to hanging out with legs dangling over the bench, while Nathan Horton took aim at a spot on the boards across the blueline, Tyler Seguin stickhandled and Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara had an in-depth discussion on the bench.

Once the skate started - without David Krejci taking the ice - 13 forwards and seven defensemen, along with Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin, took line rushes.

Ryan Spooner, who was recalled on an emergency basis Monday, joined the team and took rushes centering Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton. A remarkable opportunity for the young centerman in Krejci’s absence, while the other lines stayed intact.

Following the skate, Coach Julien gave an update on Krejci, saying that he was “doing better, and that’s a good sign.”

Coach also said Krejci had been biking, so “things are looking better,” but did say that the center will not play tonight. In his place, Ryan Spooner will get the biggest opportunity he’s had thus far in his career, with the second NHL call-up.

"This is something that we’re giving him the opportunity, being a real good centerman, to play with some good players," said Coach Julien postskate. "He’s a great playmaker, so I think it’s a great opportunity for Spoons to take and see where he goes with that. If it doesn’t’ work out we can always make some changes, but we’ve seen him play enough that he can probably be a good fit there."

"Again, he just has to go out there – we told him just to play his game. Like I said, I’ve see him play enough, they play a very similar system down there [in Providence], so it’s not like he’s going into uncharted waters."

"He knows exactly what we expect of him, it’s his second call up, so just give him little tips there at the end on his faceoffs, everything else trying to help him out."
