Sproul\'s Offence Of Game Sprouting

Name: Ryan Sproul
Team: Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
Hometown: Mississauga, Ontario
Position: Defence
Height: 6’3”
Weight: 175 lbs
2010-2011: 61games, 14 goals, 19 assists, 36 PIMs
Final Central Scouting Ranking for N.A. Skaters: 54th

Ryan Sproul has the skill part of his position pretty well down. Fourteen goals is a showy enough total for anyone.

“I try to base my game on guys like Drew Doughty (Los Angeles Kings) or a Mike Green (Washington Capitals), who have offensive ability but are also defensively sound. I’m happier scoring a goal than hitting a guy,” he said.

“I think for me, offence is one of the areas of the game I can play well. I need to improve my defence but if I am going to make it to the NHL I think it will have a lot to do with my offensive game.”
