Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes remains active despite limited activity, making reasonable offers to Sean Monahan and Jonathan Marchessault, who signed elsewhere.

With the need for a top-6 forward apparent, the Habs could consider 27-year-old forward Daniel Sprong. Sprong, a Dutch player and former 46th overall pick by the Penguins in 2015, has struggled to find his niche in the NHL but has emerged as a solid depth scorer in recent seasons. He scored 21 goals in 66 games for the Seattle Kraken in 2022-23 and 18 goals in 76 games for the Detroit Red Wings last season, totalling 89 points in 142 games over the past two seasons.
Sprong's production is notable given his limited ice time, averaging less than 12 minutes per game. He ranks 17th in the NHL in points per 60 minutes, ahead of stars like Brayden Point and Kirill Kaprizov. Signing Sprong to a short-term, low-cost contract could be a low-risk move with significant upside for the Canadiens, potentially leading to a valuable trade asset by the deadline.
In conclusion, while Sprong may not be the top-6 forward of every Habs fan's dreams, he could be a shrewd acquisition for Montreal, adding much-needed scoring depth and versatility to the roster.
