We have new information regarding the proposed acquisition of Daniel Sprong by Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.

In addition to a few reputable sources, today it's Tony Marinaro's turn to link Sprong's name to Kent Hughes and the Habs.
It must be said that the connection makes sense, as Montreal is looking for a natural scorer, which Sprong definitely is.

Daniel Sprong with the Montreal Canadiens?

As of July 9, most of the best free agents have already found homes. See the list of the best names currently available.
Indeed, we are not likely to find the Canadiens' next star player on this list, according to all indications.
However, there could be a useful player.
"And when you look at the list of players still available, the only name that might be attractive to some... It's Daniel Sprong."

Tony Marinaro indeed believes that Daniel Sprong is an ideal target for the Montreal Canadiens, as we are talking about a player who would definitely and instantly improve the Habs' offense, and possibly the power play.
He discussed it in his most recent episode, along with the excellent journalist Eric Engels from Sportsnet:

Sprong is a unique case because he has been very productive in the NHL but has never been able to gain extra playing time due to his defensive struggles.
Sprong has produced at rates of 46 points and 57 points (per 82 games) over the past two seasons, despite very limited use of less than 12 minutes per game.
It's a rare phenomenon.
Particularly in 2022-2023, he amassed 46 points in 66 games, playing 11 minutes and 25 seconds per game. It's incredible.
It's a name to remember, in any case.
