RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Detroit’s second-round pick of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Frk finished fifth in points among skaters for AHL Grand Rapids in 2015-16, dropping 27 goals and 17 helpers in 67 games. Nobody on the Griffins came close to his 11 scores on the power play. Frk’s been involved in postseason play for nine seasons below the NHL level starting with HC Karlovy Vary of the Czech under-18 squad in 2007-08. There’s no vowels in “Frk,” but he’s drawn plenty of ‘ooo’s’ for his ability to find the back of the net. On the downside, Frk’s skating needs work and that could be enough to delay his arrival in the NHL beyond the 2016-17 campaign. He’s on the third and final year of an entry-level contract, though he’s longer exempt from waivers, so it’s more important than ever for Frk to make a lasting impression in training camp.
Martin Frk, the 49th overall pick in the 2012 NHL draft scored 84 points in just 56 games for Halifax (QMJHL) this past season. Frk, just 19 was often overshadowed by his more glamorous teammates, Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin but remains a good prospect. Frk is expected to open the season in the AHL.
