Frolik Generating Tons of Interest
Among forwards, Michael Frolik from the Winnipeg Jets has been garnering some of the most interest heading into the free agency period.
The 27 year old forward is about to enter his 8th NHL season after being drafted 10th overall by Florida in 2006. It is believed that Frolik and his agent met with over 10 teams down in Florida over draft day weekend. He is seeking a deal up to five seasons long and will likely get in the 5 to 6 million range.
Frolik is not a dominant forward, but a good middle six guy for any team that struggles with offense. Frolik had 19 goals and 42 points in 82 games with Winnipeg last year. He’s a versatile forward, having played in 163 out of 164 possible games over the past two seasons.
Frolik has developed a strong two way game and also kills penalties very well. Whichever team gets him will be very lucky, even if it’s an overpayment due to a weak free agent class.
