In the Spotlight: Matt Frattin

Owen Durkin
02/04/2013
He was a John Ferguson Junior find, drafted ninety-ninth overall, in 2007. Another diamond in the rough, plucked and polished painstakingly, in preparation for a pro hockey career. Like all diamonds, it was the extreme pressure he came to know that led to his ultimate brilliance. Matt Frattin has always had the gift. Make that “gifts”, actually. He’s a natural-born goal-scorer who shoots the puck well; that much he has proven, but he’s also a strong skater with a nose for the net, and a quality kid with a good head on his shoulders. Just a few short years ago, the latter may have been in question, with a number of incidents, including a DUI charge that ultimately cost him his scholarship at North Dakota, threatening his future as a pro athlete.

Kids good, strong on his feet, works hard, has a beast shot.
He needs to throw more hits. But he will learn that. Like to see him on the halfboards on one of our ****** PP lines

I see a lot of Dustin Brown in Matt Frattin.

agreed, a dustin brown lite IMO.

He very much seems like a 25 goal 15 assist kind of guy, with a 60 point ceiling.

Not much of a playmaker in frattin, but he's strong on the puck, and has that scoring touch.

very useful 2nd/3rd line winger.

In fairness as well Dustin Brown played extremely well in the playoffs, that team just got hot at the perfect time.

The Brown comparison I think is a bit more than what he actually is.

He's like a Kulemin lite.

Remember, Kulie also has a great shot, he just hasn't been using it as often or with as much confidence.
