April 2019 – Upon making an underwhelming NHL Debut, Mark Friedman was returned to Lehigh Valley. He will need to play more assertively with the big club if he is to stay there longer than a cup of coffee. He can agitate opposing teams with the best of them, which only underscores the importance of him playing up to his ability the next time he gets called up. Edric Joseph

July 2018 – Mark Friedman was one of the harder training camp cuts last fall. Even with this impressive showing he was not without his struggles when playing defence for LeHigh Valley in his first tour of professional hockey duty. Play improved as the season went on, he was proving to be more of an asset to the team as he drove more offence and how he was sneaky valuable with his ability to draw penalties when he took to the ice. Offensive upside is limited, the potential to contribute peripherals such as plus-minus and hits is there though. Edric Joseph

 

June 2016 – Mark Friedman elected to forgo his senior year of collegiate hockey and sign his entry-level deal with the Philadelphia Flyers. With the list of legitimate rearguard prospects ahead of him on the depth chart he is expected to report to Lehigh Valley. While his play away from the puck has come along since draft day, we’ll be seeing just how much it has in the AHL soon enough. He’s one to keep an eye on in training camp, but don’t expect another Shayne Gostisbehere. Edric Joseph
