Daniel Sprong's Player Profile

Bill Placzek of DraftSite.com: "An undersized winger who can make it rain on the power play. Shifty and opportunistic and strong on his skates. Slips away and finds the soft spot and wants the puck. Exceptional athlete who despite an undersized frame will not be taken off the puck. Although he may not project as high as a second line contributor, he has been his teamís key PP player, because he set up teammates with cross-ice feeds as well as having one terrific shot. Donít make the mistake of thinking he canít beat you from many areas with his deadly shot and exceptional set-ups, because he will. The questions will come as what exactly is his high-water mark."

Profile by Dennis Schellenberg of Scouting-Factory.Blogspot.ch (Jan. 25th): Strengths:

2. Offensive Play
3. Hockey Sense

Areaís For Improvement
1. Defensive Play
2. Strength
3. Needs to shoot more often.

Scouting Report: A good, agile skater with fast first steps and great speed with the puck, able to move in different directions unexpected. Likes to go one on one and possess slick hands and puck handling skills. Has a great overview to set up plays with his accurate and strong pass. He doesnít need a lot of space to make plays and shows great patience with the puck. Still needs to gain strength and doesnít show a lot of physical game. Needs to use his powerful wrist shot more often and sometimes tends to try too much with the puck on his stick. Doesnít panic when under pressure, though. Sprong is a player who always gets things going and doesnít shy away from making plays. Shows hockey sense in many of his shifts and can make a difference on and off the ice in favour of his team.

NHL Potential: Playmaker. Has a very good overview and great accurate pass to setup plays.
