If Frattin is to stick as an NHL regular it will be based on his scoring prowess.

He's tough the same way Lupul is tough. Doesn't shy away from contact, finishes checks. He isn't the physical force that people are making him out to be on here.

That being said I see Frattin as a 2nd/3rd line tweener in the NHL with 25 goal/ 15 assist upside. Offensively, he doesn't use his teammates well. He is already 24.
So power forwards don't score a lot of goals? hahaha
