A potential first-line forward

December 2019 – While the points are still a work in progress, Frost has been fitting on Giroux’s wing nicely. He has been connecting with the Flyers Captain on and off the ice and it only stands to help his chances at a successful rookie campaign. That’s not to say Frost a la carte has not been impressive. He is already showing glimpses of the strong driver of team offense that any NHL team would be happy to have by way of his excellent zone entry and exit rates. Hard to see him getting much love in the Calder conversation if he sticks for this year, but Frost has definitely been playing like belongs in the NHL. He can make himself more useful than he already is by being more productive in his play without the puck. Edric Joseph

 

July 2018 – Morgan Frost was reassigned to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, and even though it did not result in playing time to speak of, he still gave powers that be a chance to get a closer look at what he can do. After GM Ron Hextall mentioned earlier this season how he cannot yet handle the professional ranks, Frost’s recent body of work begs to differ nevertheless. Edric Joseph

June 2018 – Arguably the fastest rising NHL prospect over the past nine months, Frost finished second in OHL scoring with an eye-popping 112 points in 67 games. He also finished fourth in scoring in the OHL playoffs en route to leading Sault Ste. Marie to the Final before bowing out to Hamilton. He is an intelligent player who can make quick decisions with or without the puck. While capable of jumping to the NHL in terms of ability, he needs to bulk up a few pounds first as he tends to play an aggressive brand of hockey at times. Dobber

 

December 2017 – The Flyers took quite the leap of faith on Morgan Frost as they not only traded a proven commodity in Brayden Schenn to make it happen, they went off the board to get him late in the first round. His current standing as third among OHL point-leaders does not do his magical season justice. In this time, he is quick to get his hands dirty going into difficult areas while still making things happen. If he is not setting up teammates directly, he can often be found generating valuable second-chance scoring opportunities. Garbage goals they may be, they all look the same on the scoresheet.  His evasiveness and mobility will only get him so far at the NHL level. That notwithstanding, the Flyers are well on their way to getting a return on trading Brayden Schenn with interest.  Edric Joseph
