Philadelphia Flyers forward prospect Morgan Frost has been named not only the OHL Player of the Week for the week ending December 17th, but also the CHL Player of the Week which encompasses the OHL, QMJHL, and WHL. Frost played in three games during the week, tallying four goals and four assists for eight points with a plus-9 rating.
Frost is among the OHL leaders in nearly every main category, but this is just the first time he’s been named the player of the week. Frost is 1st in the OHL in +/- (+42), 2nd in assists (36), 3rd in points (55), and tied for 9th in goals (19).
This week Frost scored two goals in a 4-1 win on Wednesday night as he was named the first star of the game, added two assists in a 4-3 win on Friday night, and put on a show on Sunday with two goals and two assists for second star honors in a 7-1 win. Frost has helped the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds to a 20-game winning streak heading into the holiday break.
Frost has already nearly matched his season total of 62 points (20 goals, 42 assists) in 67 games last year. He should reach the 62 point mark within a handful of games after the holiday break.
Frost has 27 points (8 goals, 19 assists) during his 11-game point streak. He has been held without a point just once in the past 16 games, totaling 34 points (12 goals, 22 assists) in that span. He has 40 points (14 goals, 26 assists) during 19 games on the 20-game win streak, and has 50 points (18 goals, 32 assists) in 26 games after a relatively slow start.
The Flyers grabbed Morgan Frost with the 27th pick in this year’s draft. He’s still just 18 years old, which kept him off of Team Canada’s list for the World Junior Championships, but he has been having a fantastic season and it’s good to see him get recognized with this honor.
