Right handed shooter, scouts say he has one of the best shots in the draft, not big but not small and supposedly good strength and likes to play chippy and agitate. Concussion problem last year and reportedly a strong but not fast skater who needs to work on his conditioning.
Hopefully the skating improves a bit as he gets into better shape.
My personal pick, Kosmachuk, still on the board heading into the 3rd so maybe they get him too.
If Frk can stay healthy and continue to gain athleticism he could prove to be a goal-scorer. Was a top-15 pick before the concussion. Very, very heavy shot and loves to score. Gets by defenders easily. Favorite player is Dats. Great pick!
What kind of player is Frk? I know he had some injury problems and was projected as a high round pick before the season. Big kid though which I like.
I wouldn't call him big if he's 6'0". He's 204 lbs though which may be good or could be the reason why he's not a good skater. He has concussion problems so that's a bit of a concern and his motor is questionable. The positives are he has a good shot and his overall skill level is good.
At a bare minimum he seems like he'd be a good shootout guy. He's playing in NA which is a plus as he's getting acclimated to the speed of the game. Hopefully one concussion is enough for him to learn the hard way. He had a good playoff run which bodes well. His offensive IQ is viewed as being his biggest strength.
He won't play in Detroit anytime soon, but the Hockey Writers say he has the potential to be a second line forward, so not bad at all with a pick in the second round.
