Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Daniel Sprong
Daniel Sprong was born on March 17, 1997, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He starred for the Charlottetown Islanders of the QMJHL and was selected in the second round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Sprong cracked the Penguins' opening night roster to start the 2015-16 season. He would see action in 18 games for the club, scoring a pair of goals before being returned to Charlottetown for the remainder of the season. When Sprong's QMJHL season ended he joined the Penguins' AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, for their playoff run. He would go on to appear in 10 post-season games for the club, recording seven points before the team was eliminated in the third round.

The 2017-18 season would be spent primarily in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Suiting up in 65 games, Sprong produced impressive offensive numbers, with 32 goals and 33 assists. His strong play was rewarded when he was recalled by Pittsburgh. Sprong would go on to appear in eight games for the Penguins, finding the back of the net twice and adding an assist.

On December 3, 2018, Sprong's time in the Penguins organization would come to an end. He was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Marcus Pettersson.
