Daniel Sprongs season has been full of distractions, including the TV crew that follows him around to document his every move.But the Charlottetown Islanders star forward remains focused on his future even as he deals with the cameras, frequent media coverage, various draft ranking updates and a citizenship application thats slowly crawling through Canadas immigration system.Im playing for my future, Sprong said in a recent interview. I think its fair to say at the beginning of the year I was focused a lot on off-the-ice things with rankings, what people were saying about me, writing about me. I put a lot of pressure on myself.Its easy to understand how a 17-year-old could get lost in the hoopla that comes with being the subject of consistent scrutiny and exposure.On Thursday, Sprong was preparing to have a camera crew from a major sports network follow him around for the fifth time this season to film every part of his life for a pre-draft television documentary about some of the games best prospects.It was a bit of a distraction at first, but Sprong said he and his teammates are embracing the extra attention. Islanders defenceman David Henley is also featured on the show.“It’s cool, and it’s an honour to be selected for it,” said Sprong, whose QMJHL team is 17-17-1-1 and fourth in its division. “The team has some fun with it, and it’s neat to be a part of.”A native of the Netherlands, Sprongs family moved to Montreal when he was seven so he would have a better opportunity at a hockey career. He flourished at every level in minor hockey, and was rewarded in 2013 when he was taken in the first round (13th overall) in the Quebec League draft by the Islanders.Sprong burst onto the scene in his rookie season, leading all underage scorers with 68 points in 67 games. He’s followed that up with a solid second year, posting 20 goals and 20 assists through 36 games after an early-season lull.He scored twice against Halifax on Thursday and has now scored four times in his last two games.But despite his success, Sprong’s Dutch roots have prevented him from suiting up for Canadian national team programs. His agent and lawyer are working on his behalf to complete his bid for citizenship, but until his application is accepted he won’t be able to play for Team Canada at any level.And that’s a shame, said Islanders general manager Grant Sonier, because Hockey Canada has expressed interest in Sprong.“He considers himself Canadian, he loves Canada, and once the paperwork is worked out, I’m sure Hockey Canada will be happy,” said Sonier. “A lot of hockey people will be glad to get him on that international stage.”Sprong agrees he’d like to have the issue resolved soon than later, but said he has “no idea” when that will be.In the meantime, he has set his sights on the NHL Entry Draft in June and finding a way to climb through the first-round rankings. Considered an offensive dynamo, Sprong possesses Patrick Kane-like offensive awareness and evasiveness, said Sonier.“He’s an excellent skater with incredible hand-eye co-ordination, and a tremendous shot,” Sonier said.But he isn’t without his blemishes. Theres some concern among scouts — and even his own GM — that Sprongs defensive zone play needs to improve.“I’m offensive-minded, and I think of that first before defence sometimes,” Sprong admits. “Maybe leaving the zone too early to get a breakaway, thinking ahead a little bit. I’m working at being better in the d-zone, and my goal is to be a 200-foot player and a threat in all three zones.” Dirk Nowitzki Jersey. Case in point: LeBron James vs. Ben McLemore. James was driving to the rim in the first quarter and McLemore decided to try to take the charge, which was quite admirable and predictably futile. Jason Kidd Mavericks Jersey. - The Green Bay Packers got back to work on Friday without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. - Nathan MacKinnon scored the winning goal in the shootout as the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. Justin Anderson Mavericks Jersey. -- Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen took the second-round lead Saturday in the Champions Tours Legends of Golf, teaming for a 6-under 48 in windy conditions on the par-3 Top of the Rock course. Swingman Justin Anderson Jersey. Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club.Two teams separated by three games in the Eastern Conference standings clash tonight north of the border, as the Toronto Raptors play host to the Washington Wizards. The Raptors are third in the East behind Indiana and Miami, while the Wizards are three games behind the Atlantic Division leaders in the fifth spot. Catch all the action live on TSN and TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et/4pm pt. Toronto is five games ahead of Brooklyn in the Atlantic and will also host Golden State and Sacramento on the homestand. It has won three straight and six of seven games, including Tuesdays 99-93 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. DeMar DeRozan poured in 33 points, Terrence Ross netted 19 and Kyle Lowry added 13 points with nine assists for the Raptors, who found a way to win despite shooting 44.3 percent and making 10-of-32 3-pointers. Lowry scored 14 or more points in eight straight games from Feb. 5-23, then was held to a point below that mark against the Cavs. "Youre not going to have great games all the time, youre not going to shoot 10-for-12 or 20-for-30. Youre always going to have some type of off-game," Lowry said. "You cant let that stop you from helping your team win a game. I wasnt making my shots, but I know I can still help the team." The Raptors are 11-3 at home since Jan. 1 and 16-11 at Air Canada Centre. They have also held their opponent under 100 points in a season high-tying six consecutive gaames.dddddddddddd. Toronto is 27-7 when doing that this season. Meanwhile, DeRozan is averaging 25.7 ppg in February for the Raptors, who are ensured of a winning record for a third month in a row. Toronto was 8-6 in December, 11-6 in January and currently has a 7-4 mark in February. Washington enters the great white north on a four-game winning streak. The Wizards, who will also visit Philadelphia on its quick quest, disposed of the Orlando Magic 115-106 on Tuesday thanks to four players with 20-plus points. John Wall led the Wizards with 27 points, Trevor Ariza had 22 and both Marcin Gortat and Bradley Beal netted 21. "I thought we came out really energized. We got great performances from everybody," said Wizards coach Randy Wittman. The Wizards, who made 52.5 percent from the field and hit 10-of-16 3-pointers, led by as many as 17 a day after learning forward Nene would miss around six weeks with a sprained MCL in his left knee. Washington is 11-6 in its last 17 road games and is averaging 99.8 ppg in that stretch. Wall has 18.6 points and 7.8 assists over that time. The Wizards are 14-14 overall away from D.C. this season. Toronto has defeated Washington three times already this season and is unbeaten in four straight and six of the last eight meetings between the teams. The Wizards havent succeeded much lately in Canada, losing seven of eight and 11 of the past 15 trips there. china nfl jerseys ' ' '
