outside of being a terrific playmaker I don't know alot about this guy.

Any chance he gets to play in Chicago soon? Why was he sent to ECHL?

1) He's a bit undersized, and lacks some of the necessary physical component to his game.

2) Chicago is loaded this year, so he wouldn't see any playing time there. Plus he'd probably not be the first guy called up from Gwinnett, I'd think Fretter's game is more AHL-ready at this point.

3) He's in the final year of his Thrashers contract, and is in his 3rd year in Gwinnett, plus with Atlanta currently at the 50-contract limit, he might be a numbers casualty after the season.

Don't get me wrong, I think he's a great kid and he's still young enough to move up, he's really improved on several areas of his game, in particular faceoffs, but he's still got a way to go.

Great points. Schell deserves an extra look, but yes, it's a numbers game eventually.

I'm a big Fretter fan. The first conversation I had immediately when I walked into prospects camp this year was:
"Who the heck is this #41 guy???"
"Oh, he's Fretter."
"Holy cow! I though he was a vet slumming it"
"I know..."
