Rangers Agree to Terms With Ryan Spooner

by New York Rangers @NYRangers / NYRangers.com

New York Rangers General Manager Jeff Gorton announced today that the team has agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Ryan Spooner on a two-year contract.

Spooner, 26, skated in 59 games with the Rangers and Boston Bruins this past season, registering 13 goals and 28 assists for 41 points, along with a plus-six rating and four penalty minutes. He established career-highs in points per game (0.69), plus/minus rating, and average ice time (15:18), and he also tied his career-high in goals. Spooner was one of two NHL players who registered at least 40 points and was assessed four or fewer penalty minutes in 2017-18 (along with Ryan O'Reilly). Spooner's 0.69 points per game average this past season was the second-most among NHL players who skated in at least 20 games and averaged fewer than 16:00 of ice time per game (Thomas Vanek - 0.70). Spooner tallied 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 20 games with the Rangers after he was acquired on February 25, 2018, and he tied for the team lead in assists and points from the time he was acquired until the end of the regular season. He registered seven points (one goal, six assists) in his first three games with the Rangers and posted a multi-point game in all three contests, becoming the first player in franchise history to record six assists in his first three games as a Ranger and post a multi-point game in each of his first three contests as a Ranger.
