#5 Daniel Sprong
At number five, Daniel Sprong will make good on more ice-time and more power-play time in the upcoming year. The 24-year-old Dutch sniper will set a career high in goals, scoring between 22-26 goals in the upcoming year. Expect to see his team-high 17.6 shooting percentage from a year ago come down to earth a little bit over the course of a full 82 games, but there’s no denying that Sprong can shoot it. A breakout year is all but certain for Sprong in 2021-2022, who has never scored more than 14 goals in a single campaign.
Sprong will surely see his ice-time increase from a meager 11 minutes and 40 seconds on average last season and more than deserves to get a real solid look on the team’s top power-play unit. With limited time in the top six, Sprong won’t eclipse 30 goals but he will be a threat to score every time he has the puck on his stick.
