Welcome to the pros, Morgan.
The Philadelphia Flyers have added top prospect Morgan Frost to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms roster for the Calder Cup Playoffs. Frost, a 19-year old center, spent this season with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the OHL, where he was one of the best players in the league. Frost came in second for the OHL Most Outstanding Player award, was voted as the best playmaker, stickhandler, and smartest player by coaches, and most recently was named to the OHL First All-Star Team.
Frost finished the season tied for the OHL lead in assists with 70 and was tied for third in the league with 42 goals. He came in second in scoring with 112 points.
The #LVPhantoms have added forward Morgan Frost (@_morganfrost_10) from the @OHLHoundPower of the Ontario Hockey League. Frost was a first-round selection (27th overall) by the @NHLFlyers in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Frost is unlikely to get into any game action, but this will still be a great experience for him. He will be able to skate with the team and be around a high-intense atmosphere as the Phantoms battle the Marlies in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Phantoms dropped Game 1 to the Marlies, 4-3, on Saturday afternoon. They will play Game 2 on Sunday afternoon before returning to Lehigh Valley.
