Bruins release Spooner, Arniel from camp

The Bruins have certainly reached a point where the cuts are getting tougher to make, and Claude Julien [1] admitted as much on Tuesday. About an hour later, the team announced that Ryan Spooner would be sent back to juniors and that Jamie Arniel was headed for Providence.

Spooner, the 45th overall pick in June’s draft, had been extremely impressive in camp, earning high praise from coaches and veteran players alike. He will return to the Peterborough Petes of the OHL, a team for which he has scored 49 goals over the last two seasons.
