  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Manages assist in win

    Sprong logged an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Sharks.

    Sprong set up Ryan Donato's goal in the second period, which gave the Kraken their first lead of the game at 3-2. The assist gave Sprong points in consecutive outings. The 25-year-old winger has collected three goals, six helpers, 21 shots on net and a plus-6 rating through 12 appearances, with four of his nine points coming on the power play. Despite the solid production, he's still in a fourth-line role, though the Kraken's balanced offense often allows many players to get a chance to contribute.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Quick response on power play

    Sprong scored a power-play goal on two shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Kings.

    Trevor Moore's shorthanded goal put the Kings ahead early in the third period, but that lasted all of 18 seconds before Sprong replied. The tally ended a four-game slump for Sprong, who was scratched versus the Jets last Sunday. The 25-year-old winger is still confined to a fourth-line role, but he's earned four of his eight points this season on the power play. He's added 20 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 11 contests, so he could have some appeal in deeper formats when he's in the lineup.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Two helpers against Wild

    Sprong notched two assists, one on the power play, in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

    The 25-year-old had a late start to the season due to visa issues after winning a roster spot in camp on a PTO, but he's erupted for two goals and seven points over the last five games. It's not clear how sustainable this surge is, however. While Sprong was a big scorer in juniors and the AHL, his best season in the NHL came in 2018-19 when he managed just 14 goals and 23 points in 63 games. He's also skating on the fourth line for Seattle, although he is supplementing that even-strength work with regular time on the power play.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Tallies on power play

    Sprong scored a power-play goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flames.

    Sprong sparked the Kraken's third-period comeback, converting on a pass from Alexander Wennberg. The tally was Sprong's second of the year, both of which have come in the last four games. He has five points (two on the power play), 10 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in five outings overall. Despite his fourth-line role at even strength, he's seeing time on the second power-play unit, and his success there is helping to keep him in the lineup.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Logs assist Saturday

    Sprong notched an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Penguins.

    Sprong set up Morgan Geekie's second-period tally, which stood as the game-winner. The assist was Sprong's fourth point in as many games this season. The 25-year-old isn't safe from being an occasional healthy scratch, but his work on offense lately is helping him earn a steady fourth-line role. He's added eight shots on net and a plus-4 rating.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Erupts with three points

    Sprong scored a goal on four shots, dished two assists, went plus-3 and added two PIM in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

    One of Sprong's assists came on the power play. It was a rather unexpected burst of offense for the 25-year-old, who was playing in just his second game of the season after sitting out the previous three as a healthy scratch. Sprong had 20 points in 63 outings between the Kraken and the Capitals last year, so he can be a decent depth scorer, but he's not someone fantasy managers need to track closely unless he can secure a spot in the lineup.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Resolves visa issues

    Sprong (not injury related) has acquired a work visa and has returned to Seattle on Thursday, Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times reports.

    Sprong missed the Kraken's first two games of the season while resolving his immigration issues. Considering this was not an injury-related absence and he played as recently as the Kraken's preseason finale, he should be available for Saturday's game versus the Golden Knights, though he may still end up as a healthy scratch.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Out with visa issues

    Sprong will miss Wednesday's game against Anaheim due to immigration delays.

    Sprong signed his one-year contract late after coming into camp on a PTO, delaying his ability to secure a work visa. He had 14 goals and 20 points in 63 contests in 2021-22. He's expected to serve in a depth role this season, likely spending some time as a healthy scratch while also getting a fair amount of work on the fourth line.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Remains out

    Sprong (not injury related) will not play Thursday versus the Kings, per the NHL media site.

    Sprong is still working through obtaining a work visa, so he'll miss a second game to begin the year. The 25-year-old is unlikely to play more than a bottom-six role once he's cleared to join the Kraken. It's unclear if he'll be available Saturday versus Vegas.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Earns one-year deal

    Sprong signed a one-year, two-way deal with Seattle on Monday.

    Sprong's new deal has an average annual value of $750,000. He was attending training camp with the Kraken on a PTO after he played in 16 games with the team last season. He finished the 2021-22 campaign with 14 goals and 20 points in 63 games for Washington and Seattle.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Returns to Seattle on PTO

    Sprong signed a professional tryout agreement with the Kraken on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Sprong finished last year with the Kraken, racking up six goals in 16 games after he was traded from the Capitals. He hit the 20-point mark for the second straight year, despite seeing his shooting percentage dip from 17.6 percent in 2020-21 to 9.2 percent last year. The Kraken addressed their lack of wing depth over the offseason, but Sprong could still earn at least a two-way deal with a strong showing in preseason.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Hitting open market

    Sprong did not receive a qualifying offer from the Kraken on Monday.

    Sprong totaled 20 points in 63 games with Seattle and Washington last year. The 25-year-old will now become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday. He's produced three 20-plus-point NHL campaigns.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Lights lamp in loss

    Sprong scored a goal on five shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.

    Sprong showed off his scoring touch after a deadline trade from the Capitals to the Kraken. With his new team, he potted six goals in 16 contests while shooting a somewhat reasonable 11.8 percent. Overall, the Dutch winger finished the campaign with 20 points, 153 shots on net, 43 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 63 appearances.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Brushes twine in loss

    Sprong found the back of the net in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

    Sprong has five goals through 13 games with the Kraken after potting eight goals through 47 contests with the Capitals earlier in the season. He's still in a fourth line capacity with utility on the No. 2 power-play unit, but Sprong hasn't surpassed 20 points in a single season since joining the NHL with the Penguins in 2015.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Ends drought on power play

    Sprong scored a power-play goal on three shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Senators.

    Sprong entered Monday on a seven-game point drought, and he was also a healthy scratch last Tuesday in Calgary. He snapped the skid at 4:36 of the first period, cashing in from close range in the first half of a double-minor for high-sticking by Parker Kelly. Sprong is up to 12 goals, 18 points, 137 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through 58 games between the Kraken and the Capitals this season. He'll likely continue to play in a bottom-six role.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Tallies again Monday

    Sprong scored a goal on five shots in Monday's 6-1 win over the Kings.

    That's now three goals in his first three games with the Kraken. Sprong saw 15:14 of ice time Monday, his highest mark since early January when he played for the Capitals. The Dutch winger is up to 11 goals, 17 points, 114 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 50 appearances. He should be a lock for the Kraken's lineup going forward given his strong first impression with the team.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Lights lamp in loss

    Sprong scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.

    Sprong did most of the work after retrieving a Carson Soucy pass. This was Sprong's second goal in as many games with the Kraken -- he continues to make a good impression with his new team. The 25-year-old winger is up to 10 goals, 16 points, 109 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 49 games between the Kraken and the Capitals this season.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Scores in team debut

    Sprong scored a power-play goal on five shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Sprong immediately earned a power-play role with the Kraken after coming over from the Capitals in the Marcus Johansson trade Monday. The 25-year-old Sprong capitalized on the newfound opportunity, scoring a game-tying goal in the second period. He's earned 15 points, 107 shots on net, 36 hits and a plus-7 rating through 48 contests overall this season, and he could move up the Kraken's lineup quickly if he continues to put in strong showings.

  • Kraken's Daniel Sprong: Dished via trade Monday

    Sprong was traded to Seattle from Washington on Monday, along with a 2022 fourth-round selection and a 2023 sixth-round pick, in a swap for Marcus Johansson, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Sprong has struggled to maintain his place in the lineup this season, frequently serving as a healthy scratch. Still, the 25-year-old winger did manage to record 14 points in 47 games for the Caps and should at least push for a top-six spot with the Kraken.

  • Capitals' Daniel Sprong: Dishes helper Thursday

    Sprong registered an assist, two shots and a plus-2 rating during Thursday's 7-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    Sprong's helper snapped a seven-game scoring drought. The 25-year-old has had trouble generating offense since the calendar rolled into 2022 with just three goals and four points in his last 18 games. Sprong has too many inconsistencies in production and playing time to warrant much fantasy consideration these days.
