Ryan Spooner to center Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton vs. Jets
|03.19.13 at 2:09 pm ET|
Ryan Spooner has only played one career NHL game, but it appears his second one will carry a ton of responsibility.
Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters in Winnipeg Tuesday that Spooner, who was called up Monday on an emergency basis from Providence, will start on Boston’s top line Tuesday against the Jets, centering Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton in place of the injured David Krejci. Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe noted during Tuesday’s morning skate that Spooner was also working with the Bruins’ top power play unit with Lucic, Horton, Dougie Hamilton and Tyler Seguin.
Spooner played 5:29 in his NHL debut last month against the Canadiens.
