  • Rangers' Ryan Sproul: Heading to Big Apple
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sproul was traded from the Red Wings to the Rangers in exchange for forward Matt Puempel on Saturday. The Red Wings had Sproul down in AHL Grand Rapids to prove his health following a knee injury that dates back to March, but he didn't get a chance to make his season debut with the parent club before this swap for Puempel. Both players involved in this deal were waived ahead of this season, but Detroit is trying to clear up cap space to accommodate the return of burgeoning forward Andreas Athanasiou, who ended his contract holdout Friday and inked a one-year, $1.3875 million deal.

  • Sproul (knee) has rejoined AHL Grand Rapids, though he's hoping for an abbreviated stay in the minors, MLive.com reports. "My goal is to be back with the Wings as quickly as possible," said the young defenseman. "Obviously, this was a great start here and I look forward to keep pushing here to make it back up there." The Ontario native contributed a goal in the Griffins' 5-2 home win over Manitoba on Friday, which obviously won't hurt his chances of getting an expedited return to the NHL. Detroit could use him, too, as Niklas Kronwall (groin) is perpetually injured.

  • Red Wings' Ryan Sproul: Deemed expendable
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sproul was waived by Detroit on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. Sproul was still recovering from an ACL tear when training camp opened on Sept. 14, and he wasn't able to play a preseason game until Sept. 24. This lack of preparation for the campaign certainly hampered Sproul's chances of cracking the Wings' roster, though he was facing an uphill battle all along. If the defender clears waivers, he'll likely be sent to AHL Grand Rapids, where he'll be a top option for recall as the season progresses.

  • Red Wings' Ryan Sproul: Returning Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sproul (knee) will make his preseason debut Monday against Pittsburgh, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The 2011 second-round pick has been out with an ACL tear in his left knee and there was uncertainty regarding whether or not he would be able to return in time for the beginning of the season. Sproul's appearance in Monday's game seems to put these worries to rest.

  • Red Wings' Ryan Sproul: Easing into camp
    By RotoWire Staff

    Sproul (knee) will get on the ice during training camp, but not quite at 100 percent, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The news that Sproul will be lacing up his skates bodes well for his availability Opening Night against the Wild. Perhaps the bigger question facing the 24-year-old is whether he can beat out Luke Witkowski and Xavier Ouellet for a third-pairing role if he's limited in camp.
