NHL COMPARABLE: Ales Hemsky

UPSIDE: Top 6 Winger or Bust

Daniel Sprong is a pretty solid prospect but to me he’s pretty much the epitome of the classic boom or bust prospect. He’s got a lot of skill, he can score, he can setup his teammates although he doesn’t use his teammates enough, in my opinion. The guy can flat out fly, he reminds me of Phil Kessel when he skates though that’s likely where the comparisons end. I think it’s top-6 forward or bust with this guy and there is certainly some risk with this pick. Early second round is pretty good value at this point though. My comparable is Ales Hemsky, a guy with tons of talent who always seems to leave you wanting more. Not convinced Sprong ends up as good as Hemsky though.
