Sproul (knee) has been placed on injured reserve, according to the NHL media site.

The move shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that he will miss the remainder of the regular season due to an ACL injury. The youngster finished 2017 with seven points (one goal, six assists), 46 shots on goal and a minus-8 rating over 27 contests and figures to open next season in a battle for an Opening Night roster spot.
