Daniel Sprong Scores His First Goal As A Washington Capital Against the New York Islanders

A week after recording his first point as a member of the Washington Capitals, forward Daniel Sprong lit the lamp for the first time in a Capitals sweater, in Tuesday night’s contest against the New York Islanders.

The goal, Sprong’s 20th of his career, came at the 17:21 mark of the second period, a goal that put the Capitals in a 2-2 tie with the Islanders. Daniel Carr (his first point as a Capital) and John Carlson recorded assists on the play.

Sprong was acquired last season in a trade with the Anaheim Ducks, a deal that sent defenseman Christian Djoos to California. The 23-year old, former second-round pick (by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2015) signed a two-year deal with the Caps in September 2020.
