Morgan Frost scores goal-of-the year candidate in OHL

Morgan Frost is ridiculous.

The Flyers first round, 27th overall draft pick in the 2017 NHL Draft is putting together a sensational season with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the OHL.

Frost’s dominance continued Sunday, as the 19-year-old extended his point streak to 11 games, scoring twice in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Owen Sound Attack.

With his second goal of the evening, Frost reached the 40-goal milestone for the first time in his junior career. The skilled forward now sits second in OHL scoring with 110 points in 64 games.

His first goal was a goal-of-the-year candidate:

The nifty stickhandling and speed from Frost as he goes end-to-end is just the latest example of him  terrorizing opponents this season.

It’s even better in slo-mo:

Frost has compiled eight goals and 19 points during this 11-game point streak and is currently leading the league with a plus-68 rating. He recently joined Nick Cousins (2012-13) as just the second Greyhound in the past 20 years to record 100 points in a season.

Frost will always be linked to Brayden Schenn of the St.Louis Blues. The Flyers drafted Frost after they traded Schenn to the Blues in exchange for Jori Lehtera and the Blues first-round picks for 2017 (Frost) and 2018 (lottery protected).

Frost isn’t eligible to play in the AHL next season due to agreements in place between the NHL and the CHL. If he puts on some more size, Frost could very well begin the season with the big club. If not, the 5-foot-11, 170 pound center could benefit from another year dominating the OHL.

Frost has all the makings of an offensive NHL juggernaut and will likely be an important piece to the Flyers puzzle in the near future.
