Close but no cigar.
Philadelphia Flyers top prospect Morgan Frost had a fantastic season with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the Ontario Hockey League. He was voted as the smartest player as well as the best stickhandler, and was a finalist for the OHL Most Outstanding Player award along with fellow Flyers prospect Isaac Ratcliffe.
Frost ended the season among the top OHL players in each major statistical category. He had 42 goals (T-3rd), 70 assists (T-1st), 112 points (2nd), +70 (1st), 45 primary assists (1st), 87 primary points (1st), 74 even-strength points (1st), 57 ES primary points (57). But it wasn’t enough.
Here are the final results of the voting:
- Jordan Kyrou – 235 points
- Morgan Frost – 191 points
- Aaron Luchuk – 165 points
Frost finished second in voting for the OHL Most Outstanding Player award. Sarnia Sting forward Jordan Kyrou won the Red Tilson Trophy as the league’s Most Outstanding Player of the Year. Kyrou finished third in OHL scoring with 109 points in 56 games including 39 goals while tying for the league lead with 70 assists. His offensive production delivered an impressive 1.95 points-per-game to lead all skaters while captaining the Sting to their best regular season in franchise history with 46 wins and 97 points
Frost has 27 points (10 goals, 17 assists) in 22 playoff games this year. The Greyhounds and Bulldogs are tied 2-2 through four games in the OHL Championship Series.
Frost joins Claude Giroux as players snubbed for an individual award. Giroux wasn’t voted in the top three for the Hart Trophy, which was a disgrace, and Frost just missed out on the Most Outstanding Player award.
