Hey guys I found some intresting quotes about Frank Fredrickson while I was reading "Cyclone Taylor A hockey Legend"

Quote:
-Typical of the new breed was the rookie over there in Victoria, with Lester Patrick's Aristcrats. He was Frank Fredrickson, the twenty-five year old from Winnipeg, the superlative center of that city's Falcons, who was hailed on the prairies as the game's brightest star. That assessment was certaintly not far off, if off at all.

Quote:
-The Vancouver-Victoria game was scheduled for New Year's Day in 1921. It was billed as the battle of the World's Greatest Professionel (Cyclone Taylor) versus the World's Greatest Amateur (Frank Fredrickson). Victoria won the game 3-1 as Frank Fredrickson scored 2 goals.
Quote:
-"Frank Fredrickson was about as fine a playeras I've ever seen. He was fast, shifty, smart, and had a wonderful shot
