Sparks longs for clean slate with Golden Knights

“All I’ve wanted is a fair opportunity, come [training] camp, to try and make the team,” Sparks said Wednesday after a Chicago Pro Hockey League game at Fifth Third Arena, “and I think that I’ll get a better opportunity [with Vegas] than I would have in Toronto. At the end of the day, that’s what you’re looking for as a player.”
