It looks like the Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney have avoided arbitration with restricted free agent Ryan Spooner.
According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman, the two sides have agreed to a one year deal worth $2.825million.
The two met in the middle as according to Friedman, Spooner was asking for $3.85million while the Bruins were only offering $2million.
It gives Spooner another chance to put some numbers on the board and look for a bigger payday next year.
The 25 year old put up 11 goals and 28 assists in 78 games last season, 18 of those points came on the power play. Unfortunately, those numbers were actually just a bit worse, 10 less points than the previous year.
He was kind of in the dog house with former head coach Claude Julien, but will look to showcase some consistency under Bruce Cassidy.
Do you think this is a good deal for both sides?
