Sprynar is a proficient shooter who’s a menace on and off the puck in the offensive zone. His main weapon is obviously his pro level shot, with which he constantly finds holes though goalies, but he stands out for his dangerous flair around the net as well. He’s always well in position in the offensive zone, roaming around the net for open spots and making himself forgotten by his opponents. A power-play specialist from the flank, he unleashes a hard and precise one-timer that often finds the back of the net. He’s got fluid hands and shows decent creativity with the puck. Sprynar skates fairly well — he’s not a burner by any means but he displays good stance and leg extension in his strides. He usually keeps his legs moving and forechecks actively. He uses his body effectively to separate opponents from the puck, although he doesn’t necessarily play a physical game. A responsible player, Sprynar keeps looking to eliminate passing lanes from his man and consciously covers his defenseman when he jumps in. On the downside, he has issues getting the puck out of his zone and plays with an inconsistent pace, as he was visibly less intense when his team was leading. Nonetheless, Sprynar remains an interesting prospect with superior shooting abilities to exploit. I see him as a bottom third round/upper fourth round pick in the 2023 draft.
