Instant Analysis: Morgan Frost Gets Second NHL Stint

Morgan Frost is getting his second opportunity in the NHL, as the Flyers recalled the young center Friday evening.

In 18 games played so far for the Flyers, Frost accumulated seven points. This stat is not poor by any means, but he was losing top line minutes. Obviously, Frost would gain better development in the AHL with Lehigh Valley than be forced onto the fourth line.

With the Phantoms, Frost has 20 points in 30 games so far this season. Since being sent down in December, he started off the new year pacing about a point every other game. His eight points (3G, 5A) in 14 games shows his production in Lehigh Valley. He has flown around the ice, and had a nice two-goal game on January 15th, with one being a coast-to-coast beauty:

With the Flyers struggling to find a center, it’s a good move to allow the kid to get a second chance.

  1. If Frost is ready, we have a chance to to open our Stanley cup window ! And when Farabee is healthy again, we should put him Laughton”s place in second line left wing, demote Bunnaman, and let Laughton or Raffl centering our fourth-line! NAK has been great upgrade to our line-up, and it seems the physical we play, the better we play! If you are Swedish player like Robert Hägg, but play north-american style of physical hockey, you should learn how to defend yourself, like Radko did, and it should be a unwritten rule, that when you are Flyers, and at least know how to defend yourself! It frustrating to watch when our player get”s beaten up so badly , like Robert Hägg did in hands of 19 year old Finnish prospect, in Kotkaniemi, who was not drafted so high because of his fighting skills! Otherwise what the point to have physical players, who can not defend them self, because their style of play draws a lot willing players, who would like to test you!
