  • Red Wings' Daniel Sprong: Does damage against former team

    Sprong supplied an even-strength goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Kraken.

    Sprong enjoyed a 46-point breakout campaign with Seattle last year, but with a running total consisting of 15 goals and 20 assists, the bottom-six contributor has a chance to top that mark in his debut season with the Wings. Staying healthy will be a key determining factor on whether Sprong can set the bar even higher offensively; so far, so good, as he's yet to miss a game in the 2023-24 campaign.

  • 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, during 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.

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

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 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: 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.
