There's not a ton of quotes, which is why I only called him a small plus, but here's a couple...

From the 1925 Cup Finals...

"Frank Fredrickson was an accomplished defensive forward who, in a Stanley Cup finals of 1924-25, drew the role of checking the great Morenz. He did, too, and the Victoria Cougars triumphed 3 games to 1."

Regina Morning Leader - March 27, 1923

"Fredrickson, however, was a marked man all night and in spite of the fact that he was watched closely and given little chance to bore through he managed to notch two counters and was far more effective in the art of back-checking than his elusive rival."
