Zero chance. At least with the Wild. Sounds like he isn't even ECHL quality. Too bad. I remember when I read his scouting report when we drafted him back in '04 that we may have at least found a quality winger for our Houston farm team. Pretty forgettable draft all around.

Julien Sprunger, RW 4th round, 117th overall -- Fribourg-Gotteron, Swiss-A
NHL Games: 0
Status: Bust
Standing 64 and with plenty of raw offensive potential, Sprunger was considered by some to be a potential steal in the 2004 draft. Unfortunately one of the more promising Swiss prospects in recent memory appears destined to play out his career in the Swiss league. Despite improved offensive production since Draft Day resulting in Sprunger scoring at roughly a point-per-game pace the past two seasons, the winger does not appear able to play in the NHL. Lack of physical strength and poor use of his size have been knocks on Sprunger since 2004 and not enough progress has been made to make him a viable NHL prospect.
