Spooner was selected fifth overall in the 2008 OHL Bantam Draft by the Peterborough Petes. In his third season with the Petes, on November 11, 2010, Spooner was traded to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for Alan Quine, Clark Seymour, a 2011 second-round draft pick and a 2013 second-round draft pick.[1]

On January 5, 2012, Spooner was then traded by the Frontenacs to the Sarnia Sting for Ryan Kujawinski.[2]

Professional[edit]

As a rookie, Spooner led the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL), the Boston Bruins' top minor league affiliate, in points, scoring 57 points in 59 games.

Spooner made his NHL debut for Boston on February 6, 2013, against the Montreal Canadiens. Spooner was called up to the Bruins for the first time in the 2013–14 season on October 31, 2013. Playing against the Anaheim Ducks, Spooner assisted on a Carl Söderberg goal to record his first NHL point. Spooner scored his first career NHL goal on February 27, 2015, in overtime to beat the New Jersey Devils 3–2 in a Boston road victory.[3] Spooner's first goal in regulation time came as the first Boston goal in a 3–1 road defeat of the Ottawa Senators on March 10, 2015, with Spooner also scoring a second goal in the same game.[4]

On July 1, 2015 the Boston Bruins re-signed Spooner to a 2 year contract believed to be worth a total of 1.9 million dollars.[5]
