The Ducks have recalled right wing Daniel Sprong from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Sprong, 22 (3/17/97), has appeared in one game with the Ducks this season, going scoreless Dec. 22 at the New York Rangers. Acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for Marcus Pettersson Dec. 3, 2018, Sprong has earned 18-10=28 points with 10 penalty minutes (PIM) in 90 career NHL games with the Ducks and Penguins.
Selected by Pittsburgh in the second round (46th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Sprong has recorded 7-12=19 points with two power-play goals and 12 PIM in 25 games with San Diego. Sprong led the club in points, assists and shots (87), and ranked tied for second in power-play goals at the time of his recall.
