March 2013 – He has recently been given a taste of NHL blood and has a thirst for more. Spooner is leading the Providence Bruins in scoring at a rate of just under a point-per-game and is in a tie for 20th in AHL scoring with only a pair of other rookies ahead of him. He does not have a huge ceiling, but is defiantly showing potential as a top six, reliable fantasy option in the not too distant future for owners and prospective ones. Boston is a great place to own offensive prospects right now, the only frustration will be the wait and opportunities to break into the lineup. Jason Banks
December 2012 - Spooner has made the jump to the American Hockey League and it has been a successful one. The small crafty playmaker has picked up 10 assists and added a half-dozen goals to sit third in Providence scoring with 16 points in 23 games. Spooner is an interesting prospect but it his development is trending in the right direction. The Bruins are hoping he can translate into a top-six player and he is not too far away. Brendan Ross
December, 2011 – At 5’10 and 175 lbs, offensive dynamo Ryan Spooner won’t scare anyone with his physical attributes. But the savvy forward has the kind of on-ice intelligence that makes him a dangerous weapon just the same. Although he has no chance of touching Savard’s OHL numbers at the same age- his 96 assists will likely be more than the 2010 second round selection’s point total to end the year- Spooner can perhaps fill a similar role in the future.

Fantasy Outlook: B+
Boston’s deep roster will be tough to crack, so there may be a wait.
