Spooner (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Monday.

Spooner missed the Oilers morning skate and is officially listed as a game-time decision in Dallas. If Spooner can’t play, look for Patrick Russell to draw into the lineup. Spooner has just one goal on 10 shots and a minus-5 rating in eight games since being acquired by the Oilers.

The Oilers have acquired Ryan Spooner from the Rangers for Ryan Strome.

Spooner signed a two-year deal with the Rangers this offseason, that carries a $4.0M cap-hit. The Rangers will be retaining $900K. Spooner has terrible possession numbers, posting a 39.4 CorsiFor% and -7.1 CF% rel and has picked up just two points (1G / 1A) in 16 games this season. Spooner will likely slide into the Oilers bottom-6, where Strome was.

The Rangers have acquired Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Lindgren, a 2018 1st round pick and a 2019 7th round pick from the Bruins for Rick Nash.

Spooner had a breakout campaign in 2015-16, collecting 13 goals and 36 assists (49 points) in 80 games but has struggled since then, especially in 2017-18. The 26-year-old will look to get his career back on track in New York after picking up just 25 points (9G / 16A) in 39 games with the Bruins this season. He could make his Rangers debut on Sunday.

Spooner (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Sunday.

Spooner recently returned to the Bruins’ lineup but he was absent from Saturday’s practice, which has clouded his status for Sunday’s game vs. the Oilers. Spooner has one assist in two games while averaging just 10:32 TOI/GM since returning to the lineup, but he may not be available for Sunday’s contest.
