Well we have to grade everyone that suited up for the Washington Capitals this past season and today we grade the brief performance of Daniel Sprong before he got traded to the Seattle Kraken. Sprong had eight goals and six assists for 14 points in 47 games with the Capitals...
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.
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.
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.
