Prospect Report: Spooner
BostonBruins.com -- At just 19-years-old Boston Bruins prospect and Kingston Frontenacs' center Ryan Spooner, is already being recognized as a top-level player in the Ontario Hockey League.

Recently, Spooner was named one of the best stick-handlers, skaters and smartest players in the league as part of the OHL Eastern Conference Coaches Poll. 

“That was awesome…it was nice to see that my hard work is kind of paying off,” Spooner said of the recognition. 

Through 59 games with the Frontenacs this season, the five-foot-ten, 175-pound lefty has 33-42-75 totals, and finds himself second on his team in scoring. 

“I think I’m trying to get the puck on the net, when you do that things happen…and use my speed,” Spooner said. “That’s probably my biggest strength, my speed.”

The Kanata, Ontario native began his OHL career with the Peterborough Petes in the 2008-09 season, where he had 30-28-58 totals in 62 games. 

Following his second year with the Petes, Spooner was drafted by the Bruins in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft with the team’s second round pick (45th overall).

“I was pretty nervous on draft day,” Spooner said. “But I was happy to be drafted by the Bruins, they’re a great organization and I look forward to maybe playing for them one day.”

After being drafted, Spooner participated in the Boston Bruins Development and Rookie camps, where the B’s coaching staff worked with him on improving his defensive game.

“I really focused on that because I knew that was the only way I was going to be in camp, was to play smart and play well in my own end,” Spooner said. “I’m just looking to learn from that and the experience I had there.”

Spooner will look to take the advice from the Bruins’ coaches and translate it into a deep playoff run for the Frontenacs, who have already secured their post-season bid.

“I’d probably say just helping my team get as far in the playoffs as we can,” Spooner said of his goals for the remainder of the season.
