  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Two points in OT thriller

    Sprong supplied a 5-on-5 goal and a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.

    Sprong has been incredibly efficient in a bottom-six role, as evidenced by him collecting six goals and 10 assists through 23 games. Fantasy managers shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the sneaky utility winger is averaging 1:59 of ice time on the power play for which he's collected four helpers. Best of all, Sprong is on pace to eclipse the career-high 46 points that he supplied for the young Kraken franchise last season.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Multi-point night in win Wednesday

    Sprong dished out two assists, one on the power play, to go with five shots in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Devils.

    After lighting the lamp in Sweden the last time the Red Wings laced up the skates, Sprong stayed hot in the team's return to the states. This was Sprong's first multi-point game of the season, and it raised his season point total to 12 through 18 games. Sprong's proving that last season's 46-point breakout in Seattle, which doubled his previous career high, was no fluke.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Converts penalty shot in Sweden

    Sprong scored on a penalty shot in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs as part of the Global Series in Sweden.

    The penalty shot followed a ruling that Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly covered the puck in the crease. According to Dave McCarthy of, Sprong is now in the books as the first player to score a goal on a penalty shot in a regular-season contest outside of North America. The crafty winger is firmly entrenched in the bottom-six group, but he's managed five goals and five assists through 17 games.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Nets third goal of 2023-24

    Sprong collected a goal in a 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders on Monday.

    Sprong has been held off the scoresheet just once over his last six contests, bringing him up to three markers and seven points in 10 outings this year. Those offensive numbers are impressive when measured against his average of 13:33 of ice time over his first nine games this year, though Sprong did see that jump to 17:10 during the Red Wings' latest victory. If the 26-year-old continues to be leaned on like he was Monday, then he might challenge his career highs of 21 goals and 46 points. It remains to be seen if Sprong's heavy use was just an anomaly though, so it'll be worth keeping an eye on him over the next few games.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Manages assist Sunday

    Sprong recorded an assist in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Flames.

    Sprong has picked up a helper in each of the last two contests. The winger is up to four points through six games this season while handling a third-line role at even strength. He has added 13 shots on net, four PIM and a plus-4 rating. Sprong's coming off a 46-point effort in 66 games for the Kraken last year, and it appears he'll be a key depth scorer in his first year with the Red Wings.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Two goals in two games

    Sprong found the back of the net in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Lightning.

    Sprong, who also scored in the opener, patiently waited around the doorstep and cleaned up an Alex DeBrincat shot that initially caused everyone to lose sight of the puck. Detroit did a major overhaul of its roster in the offseason, including the addition of Sprong, a castoff from the nascent Kraken franchise. Sprong shouldn't be overlooked as a budget option in DFS formats following a career-best season, which included 21 goals and 25 assists.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Scores in opener

    Sprong tallied a goal on two shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Devils.

    Sprong opened the scoring midway through the first period, punching home a loose puck to give Detroit an early 1-0 lead. The 26-year-old Sprong signed a two-year deal with the Red Wings after breaking out for 21 goals and 46 points with Seattle last season. He'll open the year on the Red Wings' third line with Andrew Copp and Michael Rasmussen and Sprong should also see time with the second power-play unit.

  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Signs with Detroit

    Sprong (upper body)) signed a one-year, $2 million contract with Detroit on Saturday, Jeff Marek of Sportsnet reports.

    Sprong broke out in 2022-23, scoring 21 goals and 46 points in 66 games with Seattle. However, he didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Kraken, which allowed the Red Wings to add him as an unrestricted free agent. Sprong should slot in as a middle-six forward during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Daniel Sprong: Not given qualifying offer

    Sprong (upper body) wasn't given a qualifying offer by the Kraken on Friday and will become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Johnston of TSN reports.

    Sprong had his best season in the NHL in 2022-23, scoring 21 goals and adding 25 assists. He averaged only 11:25 of ice time in 66 games and at the age of 26, he should catch on with another NHL team next season.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Not playing Saturday

    Sprong (upper body) skated Saturday but won't return to the lineup for Game 6 versus Dallas, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.

    This will be the third straight game that Sprong will sit with the injury, and coach Dave Hakstol said that he doesn't expect Sprong to be available the remainder of the series.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Out Thursday

    Sprong (upper body) will not play Thursday against Dallas, per the NHL's media site.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Ruled out versus Stars

    Sprong (upper body) will not be available against Dallas on Tuesday and remains day-to-day, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.

    Sprong is currently mired in a six-game pointless streak during which he put 13 shots on net while averaging just 8:48 of ice time. Even once cleared to return, Sprong is unlikely to offer more than low-end fantasy value given his limited minutes.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Exits Sunday's game

    Coach Dave Hakstol did not have an update on Sprong (undisclosed) after Sunday's 7-2 Game 3 win over Dallas, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.

    Sprong left in the second period after logging 6:36 of ice time and did not return to the game.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: One of each in overtime win

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Appears set to play

    Sprong (undisclosed) is expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 1 versus the Avalanche, per the NHL media site.

    Sprong took warmups, so he should be good to go for his usual fourth-line role. The 26-year-old winger broke out with 21 goals and 25 assists in 66 regular-season contests, a trademark of the Kraken's scoring depth throughout the lineup. They'll need to rely on that depth against the reigning champions.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Game-time call Tuesday

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Deemed day-to-day

    Sprong (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day after missing Saturday's practice, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Collects three points in win

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Adds power-play helper

    Sprong notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

    Sprong fired a shot from the point, and it took a couple of bounces to get into the net, officially credited as a Jaden Schwartz goal. This was Sprong's third helper over his last two games -- solid work for a player whose shot is considered stronger than his passing skill. The 26-year-old has 20 tallies, 23 assists, 13 power-play points, 134 shots on net and a plus-12 rating through 61 contests.
