2015 Draft Class Signings (Aug 31)
On Friday, the Pittsburgh Penguins inked their 2nd round pick, 46th overall, forward Daniel Sprong, to his 3-year entry-level deal. Sprong, from Holland, played in the QMJHL with the Charlottetown Islanders and was touted quite well by the Hockey News in their Draft Preview, ranking him 25th overall, citing some very good puck skills, but some work ethic issues.
The depth among the Penguins forwards is pretty solid, so it will be a tough go to make the team out of the gate for Sprong, but if the scouting reports are true about his skill, he would fit the Penguins' MO.
