Everyone can’t stop talking about Morgan Frost.
The Philadelphia Flyers top prospect hit the 110 point mark with a three-point game on Wednesday night, and on Thursday afternoon he received even more praise from the OHL coaches.
The OHL revealed the 2017-18 Coaches Poll Winners on Thursday, and Morgan Frost was voted first in the Western Conference in three categories.
The Coaches Poll is tabulated when each team submits one nominee per category, and coaches then vote for the top three players for each category within their conference. Players receive five points for a first place vote, three points for a second place vote, and one point for a third place vote. Clubs are not permitted to vote for players from their own team allowing for a maximum of 45 possible points for each winner.
Frost was voted as the Smartest Player in the conference, with a voting total of 36 points. He was voted the Best Playmaker with a voting total of 35 points, and he was tied for the Best Stickhandler with Jordan Kyrou with 25 points.
Frost wasn’t the only Flyers prospect to be listed, however. Isaac Ratcliffe was voted as the Western Conference’s best shootout shooter, Anthony Salinitri came in third place as the conference’s best penalty killer, and Connor Bunnaman came in third place as the conference’s best on faceoffs.
Frost’s skills have translated well to the scoresheet too. He is second in the OHL with 110 points, second with 69 assists, tied for fourth with 41 goals, and leads the league in plus-minus with a +70 rating. Playmaking, stickhandling, and hockey smarts are all a huge part of those totals.
Frost continues to impress as the OHL season winds down.
