Ryan Sproul (knee) has received the green light and he will play in Monday's preseason match versus Pittsburgh.

Sproul underwent left knee surgery in April. Coach Jeff Blashill wants him to "make sure he is fast back to the puck. He's got to make sure he spends as little time in the d-zone as possible so he can use his best asset, and that is his feet and his shot." Right now, Sproul is the odd man out as the eighth defender on the depth chart because Detroit only wants to carry seven blueliners going into the year.

Detroit GM Ken Holland isn't sure if Ryan Sproul (knee) will be ready for the start of the season.

He missed the last 19 games of the 2016-17 campaign due to an ACL injury. Detroit will need a replacement for the seventh defense spot if Sproul isn't ready to play.
