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.
