The other first-round pick is off to a pretty good start.
Frost had five points in seven games entering last night’s contest, and picked up three points to move to a point-per-game pace this season. He was also named the second star of the game in the Greyhounds’ 6-3 win.
Frost’s first point of the night came on the Greyhounds’ opening goal to tie it at one in the first period. He got the puck behind the net and dished a nice backhand pass in front for a goal.
And Frost was just getting started.
Early in the second period, with the Greyhounds down a goal yet again, Frost got another assist. He weaved through the neutral zone, baited a defender and fed a pass to Mac Hollowell who buried the goal.
That tied the game at two in the middle stanza.
Frost’s night wouldn’t be complete without a goal.
Late in the third period, with his team leading 4-3, he provided an insurance goal on the power play. He passed the puck through a defender into the slot, then followed up the play by jamming home the loose rebound.
It wasn’t a pretty goal, but it counts the same on the stat sheet.
Frost’s three-point night earned him second star of the game honors. He now has two goals and six assists for eight points in eight games this season. He has three multi-point games as well, so he scores in bunches.
The fastest skater in his draft class still has some work to do. He’s got a great hockey sense and can skate, but will need to bulk up and refine his game over the next season or two. It’s going to be fun to watch him develop this season in the OHL.
