Most up-and-coming hockey stars spend their first few NHL games playing limited minutes on the third or fourth line. That’s not the case for Bruins prospect Ryan Spooner, who will start on Boston’s first line tonight in just his second big-league appearance. Spooner, the leading scorer for the B’s affiliate in Providence, will center between Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton on Tuesday in Winnipeg, filling the spot vacated when David Krejci went down with a leg injury on Sunday. Krejci isn’t expected to miss significant time, but Spooner has a shot to prove himself to head coach Claude Julien in the center’s absence. To hear from Spooner, Horton and the Bruins boss, check out the video above.
