One of the Philadelphia Flyers’ most enticing offensive prospects is back on top.
Morgan Frost of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds retook control of the OHL scoring lead with two goals and an assist in Friday’s 10-0 win over the Hamilton Bulldogs.
Frost was selected 27th overall by the Flyers in the 2017 NHL Draft and is regarded as one of the better forward prospects in the game.
Carter Hart is putting together a sensational season in net for the Everett Silvertips of the WHL, but Frost is also doing something really special in his respective junior league.
Frost is leading the OHL in both points (93) and plus-minus (plus-54) through 55 games.
The 18-year-old scored twice in Friday’s victory and added an assist, marking the 12th time this season he’s recorded at least three points in a game.
Frost got on the board in the first period after taking a pass in the slot, making a nice toe-drag move and rifling a shot past the Bulldogs’ netminder:
Frost showed off some slick playmaking ability with a great drop pass in the second period:
Frost possesses that high-end offensive talent that will likely make him a key contributor in Philadelphia one day. For now, look for the youngster to continue developing his game in junior and lead the Greyhounds on a lengthy playoff run.
