On Monday the Bruins recalled forward Ryan Spooner from Providence (AHL). With this recall it's possible that Brad Marchand may not play in Wednesday's game against Montreal because of his apparent (shoulder?) injury.

The recall for Spooner is the first NHL regular season recall of Spooner's career. In 35 games for the Providence Bruins this season, the 21-year-old is tied for the team lead in points with 30 with nine goals and 21 assists. Spooner has recorded 12 goals and 25 assists in 43 career AHL games. The 5'10", 175-pound native of Kanata, Ontario had back-to-back 60+ point seasons in the Ontario Hockey League before joining the P-Bruins, having tallied 66 points in 57 games split between Kingston and Sarnia last year, and 81 points in 64 games during the 2010-11 season split between Peterborough and Kingston.

Spooner was originally drafted by the Bruins in the second round (45th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
