Sproul has signed a one-year contract with HC Kunlun Red Star of the KHL, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
Sproul played in 64 AHL games last campaign, notching 10 goals and 29 points over that span. The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2017-18, and the fact that he's signed overseas doesn't bode well for his chances of getting another shot at the top level in the future.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Sproul has 44 NHL games under his belt, including 16 with the Rangers last season. He didn't do enough to convince New York to bring him back, leaving the 25-year-old blueliner as a free agent. The tepid interest in Sproul suggests he'll have trouble carving out an NHL role regardless of where he ultimately lands.
Sproul was among nine second-round selections by the Red Wings in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Since then, he's played predominantly with AHL Grand Rapids, adding 28 goals and 63 helpers over parts of four seasons. The burly rearguard with a heavy shot avoided the minors entirely in 2016-17 -- he posted seven points in 27 NHL games -- but an ACL injury dating back to March ruined his quest for significant playing time, as the Wings were officially eliminated from playoff contention not long after Sproul sustained his ailment. His lack of experience at the highest level figures to keep Sproul's ownership levels to a minimum, and he can only hope that his knee holds up in training camp. If so, the 24-year-old could find himself competing for a spot on the Opening Night roster with similarly talented defenseman Xavier Ouellet.
Sproul had a stellar season in Grand Rapids in 2013-14, picking up 32 points in 72 games. While Detroit's blue line situation is fairly set, Sproul will at least get a hard look in the fall and will be one of the first call-ups if he doesn't make the team.
Sproul spent much of the 2012-13 season in the OHL and needs another year or two in the minors to gain some experience.
