In the midst of a slow start to the season, it appears Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford may be ready to try to spark his team with a trade.

The Penguins dropped to 6-5-3 with their loss to the Washington Capitals, though TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports it could be a player who sat out Wednesday's game that gets moved in the near future.

a€œI am [expecting Pittsburgh to make a move]. I dona€™t know that ita€™s going to be drastic,a€ Dreger told TSN Radio Montreal 690 on Thursday. a€œMy sources yesterday [were] telling me that it might start with a smaller deal.A Daniel Sprong, whoa€™s a 21-year-old second-round pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins, has been a limited player within the organization in the last couple of seasons. Hea€™s out there for trade. I dona€™t know what the return could be."

Sprong has four assists and a minus-4 rating in 12 games with the Penguins this season while averaging less than nine minutes of ice time. He had two goals and one assist in eight games with the team last season.

Dreger speculated that the Los Angeles Kings could be a trade partner for the Penguins, since they're also a club looking for a spark.
