Penguins And Ducks Make Hockey Trade

Penguins Send Daniel Sprong To Anaheim

Pittsburgh selected Sprong in the second round of the 2015 draft but the 21-year-old struggled to find a secure spot in Pittsburgh's forward group.

"I would say it was pretty hard for me", Rutherford said.

Sprong, a second-round draft pick of the Penguins in 2015 (No. 46 overall) departs the Penguins organization with four assists and 8:34 of ice-time per night in 16 appearances this season, and with four goals and nine points in 42 National Hockey League games over the last three seasons.

Sprong generated a lot of hype in Pittsburgh coming into the season before quickly falling out of favour with head coach Mike Sullivan.

The Penguins have had problems on different parts of the ice all season, and it's clear Rutherford wants to try to build a team that will play with some consistency moving forward.

Pettersson, 22, appeared in 49 NHL games with Anaheim over the last two seasons, earning 1-9=10 points with a +9 rating and was selected by Anaheim 38th overall, in the second round of the 2014 NHL Draft.

The Penguins sent Sprong to the Anaheim Ducks on Monday for defenseman Marcus Pettersson. He has no goals and six assists in 27 games this season with an ATOI of 14:01.
