Insider Only Penguins lockup Sprong, Simon with two year contracts

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed wingers Daniel Sprong, Dominik Simon each to two year contracts worth $1.5 million.

Both players receive 1-way contracts and carry an AAV of $750,000.

It’s a potential sneaky signing for the Penguins when it comes to Sprong in regards to the term.

Being waiver eligible in the fall, it’s hard to see any scenario, barring a trade, where Sprong isn’t opening the season in Pittsburgh.

A 1-way contract was always going to happen for around the money he signed, but the Penguins getting Sprong, his representatives willing to do a two year deal is a shrewd move by the Penguins.

Sprong if given an opportunity in the top-9 next season with some second unit power play time, putting together a 17-20 goal season is not that far fetched. He’s that good at shooting the puck.

Doing a one year deal with an opportunity for a bigger payday next summer had to be an ideal option for the Sprong camp, so the Penguins getting two years was a win for them. Want the Full Story? Get "Inside Access"
