The Seattle Kraken have signed forward Daniel Sprong to a professional tryout, CapFriendly reported Tuesday.
Sprong, 25, split the 2021–22 season between the Washington Capitals and Seattle, scoring 14 goals and 20 points in 63 games. The Kraken acquired Sprong and two draft picks from the Capitals at the 2022 trade deadline in exchange for Marcus Johansson.
The Pittsburgh Penguins originally selected Sprong in the second round (No. 46 overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft. The 6’0″, 193-pound winger spent parts of three seasons with the Penguins before being traded to the Anaheim Ducks in 2018 for Marcus Pettersson.
After spending most of the 2019–20 season in the American Hockey League, Sprong joined the Washington Capitals the following year and finally emerged as a full-time NHL player. The Amsterdam product scored 13 goals and 20 points in 42 games with the Capitals in 2020–21.
