Daniel Sparre (born October 16, 1984) is a Canadian-German professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for Adler Mannheim in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He is of German descent and received a German passport in 2009.

Playing career[edit]

Sparre started his professional career in the 2005-06 season with the Hartford Wolf Pack in the American Hockey League, followed by stints with ECHL’s Charlotte Checkers, Texas Wildcatters and Columbia Inferno as well as AHL’s Springfield Falcons.

In 2008, he decided to continue his career abroad and signed with Pontebba in Italy.

Sparre then moved to Germany for the 2009-10 season, joining the Iserlohn Roosters of the country’s top-tier competition Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). Following his one-year Iserlohn stint, Sparre played for two other DEL sides in the following years, Kölner Haie and Straubing Tigers.[1] On May 7, 2013, after two seasons with the Tigers, Sparre signed with DEL rival, EHC München.[2] He had his contract renewed in 2014 and 2015. Shortly after winning the 2015-16 DEL championship with München, he inked a three-year deal with fellow DEL team Adler Mannheim.[3]
